In this week’s edition of NoVa Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at an 1890s Colonial on the Falls Church Historical Register, and an Arlington rambler that would make a nice family starter home.
This 1950s rambler is a nice little family starter home on a large lot with plenty of space to expand. There are wood floors throughout and a large kitchen that could be redesigned for extra storage and counter space. The finished, wood-paneled basement provides extra room for entertaining or overnight guests. Also in the basement is additional built-in storage and pegboard installations, which provide a space for storing tools and other household odds and ends.

- Price: $575,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: One
- Year Built: 1950
- Listing Agent: Jennifer Knoll, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
The beauty is in the details of this 1890s colonial called Bonnie Briar, which is listed on the Falls Church Historical Register. Many of the details in the house recall another era — lion statues at the entrance, a lion door knocker, a rose and thistle-detailed iron railing, and a high tank, pull chain toilet. But the larger features are also noteworthy, including a number of fireplaces, a wood paneled library with a stained glass window, a hidden staircase, and a small fish pond with a waterfall. There’s also an extensively landscaped yard and flagstone patio.
