Aurora Hills Homes For Sale, Arlington VA

Aurora Hills is a historic neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia. The real estate market here is predominately detached single-family homes for sale, and most of those were built prior to World War II. There are some exceptions to the rule, but it’s safe to categorize this as one of Arlington’s older communities, known for gracious upscale residences.

The community’s earliest residents were farmers, with a couple surviving buildings dating back to 1870. One of those is a Greek Revival-style manor—the lone remnant of what once was the large Sunnydale Farm. In 1896, the area was subdivided by the Addison Heights Company. Aurora Hills was one the three original subdivisions—the others being Addison Heights and Virginia Highlands. The collective area is sometimes referred to as Aurora Highlands.
