Garden City Homes For Sale, Arlington VA
Small, quiet and loaded with charm—this is what Garden City is all about. Located in the northwestern section of North Arlington, this community has a misleading name.

This part of Arlington dates back centuries and primarily served as farmland, grazing pastures and fruit orchards along with summer home retreats for elite Washingtonians of a bygone era. Most of the earliest structures are now gone, although you can still find some turn-of-the-century farmhouses here and there. The larger residential development movement began in the early 1930s, however, lasting until the late 1940s. Home styles during that period included Victorian, Colonial Revival, Cape Cod, early brick Ramblers and other cottage-types. More recently, there has been an uptick in teardowns and other extensive remodels or reconstruction, with handsome Arts & Crafts architecture.
The real estate market here is dominated by detached single-family homes for sale, with prices generally starting around $650,000 and quickly climbing into the seven figures. The streets are lined with leafy trees, lawns are nicely manicured and there’s lots of landscaping and gardens.
This is also a place with a lot of local community pride and planned activities. Outdoor recreation is also popular, what with the Chestnut Hills Park and the larger Greenbriar Park. The latter park is spread out over 18 acres with a very impressive array of sports facilities. That means lighted tennis courts, basketball, a track with synthetic footing and three diamond fields, including a main baseball diamond with dugouts, bleachers and a press box.
