More about Properties for Sale near Rosslyn Orange Line
This Arlington community may be old, but there are no longer a lot of historic detached single-family homes for sale. Instead, buyers will find an interesting cross-section of 1940s garden-style apartment complexes that have converted to condos for sale, newer luxury townhomes and tall, gleaming residential towers.
Posh high-rises like the Waterview and Turnberry Tower are celebrated for their river views and amenities. And while office buildings have been a focus for commercial developers in recent years, there is a new push by Arlington planners to create more residential properties as well as a walk-friendly local experience.
Additional Information about the Area
Rosslyn was once known as an area of ill-repute. Bandits would lay in wait along Dead Man’s Hollow to rob farmers, while gamblers and other unsavory characters would spend their evenings in illicit saloons. That began to change in the early 20th century as social reformers and land developers pushed to make the area more family oriented.
Today, neighborhoods like Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston have become the trendiest real estate markets in Arlington. The presence of the Metrorail system is a big part of the appeal. With plenty of shops, restaurants and luxury condos for sale, Rosslyn is a modern community that continues to evolve.
