Penthouses For Sale in Arlington, VA

As with any metropolitan area, penthouses for sale in Arlington, Virginia represent luxury and exclusivity. But life at the top in Arlington goes a little bit higher than other parts of the region—especially Washington DC itself. That’s because height restrictions and zoning laws are particularly restrictive in the District of Columbia and considerably looser on the other side of the Potomac River.

Penthouse dwellings first came into vogue in this country during the early 1920s, a time of great prosperity and style. The construction boom of tall buildings in major cities included the novel idea of singular apartments at the very apex of these new structures, often perched on top of the roofs. In the modern era, penthouses have become more plentiful with the top floors of many condominiums and apartment buildings divided into multiple units, often including roof decks.

While you’ll find penthouses for sale (as well as other high-rise condo units) throughout Arlington, they are especially prevalent in the urban corridors, as well as along the Potomac. The Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor stretches to both the north and south of two parallel roadways—Wilson and Clarendon Boulevards. The corridor begins at the gateway community of Rosslyn at the river and heads west through Courthouse, Clarendon and Virginia Square, before arriving in Ballston. There has been a building boom for upscale condos for sale in recent years and penthouses represent the penultimate of those dwellings.

Rosslyn itself is especially noted for very tall buildings with spectacular views. Among the most popular are Turnberry Tower and the Waterview.

But regardless of what part of Arlington you’ll find these birds nest homes in, they all share a particular commonality. And that is the special feeling that comes from living on top of the world, with windows, balconies and rooftop terraces that allow one to relax and take in breathtaking views. As for cost, there is no set price for these lofty units. Much depends on the size of the condominium, the location, the age and the amenities that are included. It’s possible to find smaller units in the $300s, while the most opulent of these homes can climb well into the millions.

Penthouses in Arlington will always hold a certain cache and style of living. Whether they’re right by the water, in an energetic urban corridor or in an oasis like setting overlooking a park, these rarified treetop dwellings represent a special form of luxury in the Washington Metro real estate marketplace.
