Dominion Hills Homes For Sale, Arlington VA
In the western part of Arlington, Virginia, north of Wilson Boulevard and south of I-66 is the popular Dominion Hills neighborhood. With about 615 properties, this is a nice-sized and conveniently located neighborhood. Other nearby communities include Madison Manor to the northwest and Boulevard Manor to the south.
The Dominion Hills area dates all the way back to an early English land grant, circa 1669. But it remained agrarian for over two centuries, including fruit orchards and grazing land for cows. It wasn’t until around 1945 that the neighborhood began its modern day residential development. The Dominion Hills Civic Association was founded in 1950 and by 1951, there were 451 homes. Construction was largely complete by 1960.
Colonial Revival architecture reigns supreme here but you’ll also find some Cape Cod, Split-level and Rambler styles. Brick facades are quite popular although not exclusively—there’s plenty of clapboard exteriors as well. A number of homes in the neighborhood have been remodeled and/or expanded in recent years. There have also been some teardowns resulting in new custom properties.
