Fairlington Villages Condos For Sale, Arlington VA

Located at 3001 South Abington Street, Arlington, VA 22206

Tucked away among South Arlington’s gentle hills and large shade trees, are groupings of attractive brick Colonial Revival buildings known as Fairlington Villages. These townhouse condos for sale are actually part of a the Historic District of Fairlington, with several sub-villages sporting names like Fairlington Arbor, Commons, Glen, Green, Meadows, and Mews.

What’s with all the Fairlington business? Perhaps we should start by going further back—to 1770 when George Carlyle, a friend of George Washington, built a large plantation house known as Morvan. The massive plantation included a grist mill on Four Mile Run. During the Civil War era, the area was the site of Fort Reynolds and a smaller artillery fortification known as Battery Garesche.

More About Condominiums For Sale at Fairlington Villages

Now, move all the way ahead to 1940 when President Franklin Roosevelt’s Defense Homes Corporation began building the massive garden apartment community of Fairlington as a response for housing for the rapidly expanding federal wartime workforce. These handsome brick residences were especially viewed as priority housing for military officers and key government employees. During the 1940s, the 3,439 garden courtyard homes comprised the largest apartment complex in the United States.

But in the 1970s, the entire community was renovated and converted to condos for sale and renamed as they are today (Arbor, Glen, etc). The clusters of two and three-story brick buildings are mostly townhouses, although there are also some one bedroom units, as well as one bedroom, plus a den and two baths. Prices typically start in the low $300s and climb to the high $400s. With a swimming pool and tennis courts in each village, these historic townhouses with full basements (as well as flats) are highly sought-after, and don’t often come on the market.

The address of 3001 S. Abington Street represents the northernmost periphery of Fairlington Villages. Six of the individual villages are considered to be in North Fairlington while one is in South Fairlington. The buildings, surrounded by trees and interlaced with pathways and courtyards, are next-door to  the community of Shirlington, known for its vibrant arts and entertainment district.
