This was all farmland and orchards centuries ago. Residential development in the modern age commenced in the mid-1930s, lasting primarily to the 1950s with a brief break for the WWII years. Architectural styles from the early boom years favor Colonial Revival, a sprinkling of late Victorian farmhouse styles, some interesting Cape Cod variations with entry-ways to one side, brick Ramblers, split-levels and cottages. Newer construction often favors the “New Arts & Crafts” that have become so popular in the region.
Detached single family homes for sale have recently listed from the mid-six figures to around $2 million. There is also a lesser number of townhouse condos, located around the outer edges of the neighborhood.
This is a community with plenty of outdoor activities. There is greenspace all around, with Lacey Woods Park, Westover Park, Bon Air Park, Fields Park, Bluemont Park and Lubber Run. Additionally, Bluemont Junction which once served three converging rail lines is nearby. These days, there’s a labyrinth of connecting walking trails where the rail lines once were, along with the excellent Bluemont/Bon Air Walkabout with gardens and historic places.
But it’s not all about greenery and tranquility. Wilson Boulevard lies to the south, leading to all the great retail, restaurants and entertainment along the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor. Also worth noting, commuters in Lacey Forest can avail themselves of the East Falls Church and Ballston Metro stations. I-66 is also a great transit route.
