Stafford Albemarle Glebe Homes for Sale, Arlington, VA
Stafford Albemarle Glebe is a neighborhood with a very long name. It’s also an affluent place in North Arlington, Virginia where you’ll find lovely homes for sale, quiet tree-lined streets and lots of natural greenspace.
This stretched-out sliver of high-priced real estate territory is close to the Fairfax County border and surrounded by equally tony neighborhoods like Chain Bridge Forest to the northeast, Old Glebe to the southeast, Country Club Grove, Country Club Hills and Country Club Manor to the south and southwest, and Chesterbrook Woods to the north. The area is popular with Washington politicians, business leaders and others who can afford million-dollar properties.
Unlike some other communities in the area, residential development in Stafford Albemarle Glebe took place over a fairly short period—a busy decade that began immediately after the end of World War II and lasted until 1955. Home styles tilt toward Colonial Revival in either brick or clapboard exteriors, along with Cape Cods and early brick Ramblers. But you’ll also find some intriguing mid-century modern homes with flat or gently sloping roofs and wide overhangs. More recently, there has been a wave of new construction, with teardowns making room for Arts & Crafts and other custom designs.
You’re not apt to find condos or townhouses for sale here. Stafford Albemarle Glebe is all about detached single-family homes for sale. That is, when you can actually come across an active listing that hasn’t immediately been snapped up. Prices generally start around a million dollars and climb quickly.
Residents in this upscale community enjoy the normal things in life—croquet, badminton, black tie dinners, lawn parties, fundraisers, or golf and tennis at the nearby Washington Golf and Country Club. But there are also opportunities for quiet time at Jamestown Park, Glebe Park or the Gulf Branch Nature Preserve. Go for a reflective stroll and think about that new non-profit you’re going to start!
To sum up, Stafford Albemarle Glebe is a small neighborhood with only around 745 residents. The homes are choice but expensive, and there’s lots of outdoor activities. Call District Partners Real Estate to learn more, at 202-798-3600.
