Arlington Forest Homes For Sale, Arlington VA

Arlington Forest is a quiet and gently hilly suburb of Arlington that includes a national historic district. Located just south of Ballston, the community was developed in stages between 1939 and 1948. Home styles here tend to be less diverse than in some other historic neighborhoods, with an emphasis on boxy brick Colonial Revival structures. That said, there are a few other architectural forms in the mix, including Dutch Revival. But for the most part, the real estate market here is comprised of pleasantly upscale brick mid-century homes for sale.

Greenspace is certainly part of the appeal in Arlington Forest, starting with Glencarlyn Park to the south, then splitting into two forks that run north—Bluemont Park to the western side and Lubber Run Park to the east. The community is intersected by Arlington Boulevard.Surrounding neighborhoods include Barcroft, Columbia Heights and Bon Air.
