Although a few isolated properties were built during the late 1800s, Lyon Park didn’t take shape as a community until Frank Lyon stepped in. The well-known lawyer, publisher and land developer had previously been involved in the establishment of Clarendon. Around 1910, Lyon began buying the land that would eventually bear his name. Home construction began in earnest around 1919 and continued until 1951 (Lyon Village’s development commenced around 1923).

Engineer and landscape architect William Sunderland was responsible for designing lots that radiated out from a central point, beginning with a series of curved streets that ultimately transitioned into more of a standard grid pattern. The majority of properties were detached single-family homes for sale but there were also a number of brick garden-style apartment buildings along N. Wayne Street, 2nd Street and Arlington Boulevard constructed during the 1940s as housing for World War II workers—a common trend in Arlington during the time.

There’s a delightful blend of architecture in Lyon Park, including Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, Craftsman, Tudor, interesting hybrid Cape styles with big brick chimneys, and mid-century contemporary forms. But despite the historic district designation, there aren’t any hard-and-fast prohibitions when it comes to teardowns or complete remodels. There are, however, incentives for maintaining historic characteristics. As a result, you’ll find a number of Arts & Crafts and “New Victorian” styles that offer a look that is in keeping with tradition.

Locals may enjoy quiet tree-lined streets and parks, but urban trendiness is also close at hand along the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor. Market Commons, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are within walking distance. There’s numerous other shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment as well, along with nearby Metro stations both Clarendon and Courthouse.
