Arlington VA Townhomes For Sale
Luxurious townhomes for sale in Arlington, Virginia continue to be one of the hottest real estate trends. This is especially true in upscale urbanized areas such as the popular Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor where developers have been building multilevel city homes with every feature one could possibly imagine.
This, of course, is true of condos in general in Arlington. You’ll also find townhomes in some of the county's affluent suburbs.
What is the Difference Between a Townhome and Townhouse?
The difference between a townhome and a townhouse can be a matter of semantics, given that both residences have two or more stories and are typically purchased as condominiums—the units are individually owned with joint ownership of common areas.
Still, townhomes often refer to larger and more luxurious versions of townhouses. For instance, a four-level townhouse dwelling with a private garage and rec room at the ground level, second-story living space plus a chef’s kitchen, multiple bedrooms on the third level and some sort of den, bar, or bonus space at the fourth level along with a rooftop terrace could definitely qualify as a townhome. Add extra points for an elevator!
That said, sometimes a townhome is simply a townhouse by a slightly different name.
More About Arlington Townhomes
Granted, the term “townhome” is a bit of a marketing device. But there is no denying that these upscale properties carry a lot of cache in the Arlington area, and throughout all of the Washington Metropolitan region for that matter.
The Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor was mentioned at the outset as a place where townhome living has become a legitimate status symbol. The Rosslyn neighborhood (by the Potomac River), the Courthouse community and its closely associated neighbor Clarendon, plus Virginia Square and Ballston all benefit greatly by their close proximity to top bars, restaurants, entertainment and retail.
Then again, there’s nothing wrong with a lovely townhome in a quiet and exclusive North Arlington gated community, close to parks and the Washington Golf and Country Club.
