NoVa Best New Listings: A Rose Collection, Penthouse Views and a Clawfoot Tub

by Sarah Godfrey

In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at a Brockwood Cape Cod adjacent to an extensive public rose collection, a Ballston penthouse with impressive views from every room but one, and a Rosecrest bungalow that has been carefully updated but kept its clawfoot tub.

Brockwood Cape Cod Next to Rose Garden

This four-bedroom Cape Cod off of Wilson Boulevard has beautifully landscaped outdoor areas, filled with azaleas and ivy, but walk out of the front door, turn left and take about 20 steps and you’ll find yourself face to face with one of the most impressive public gardens in the area — the Bon Air Memorial Rose Garden. The rose collection, a popular site for wedding photos, holds more than 135 varieties and 2,500 plants. When the garden is in full bloom, the natural air freshener can be enjoyed from the windows of the master bedroom or the large living room.

Rosecrest Bungalow with Clawfoot Tub

This three-bedroom bungalow in the Rosecrest section of Alexandria has achieved a near-perfect balance of old features and new. The updated appliances in the kitchen sit on a cobblestone-like tile. The front porch is charmingly old-fashioned, while the back desk is sleek and modern and features its own built-in seating. But those who appreciate a good mix of traditional and modern, will probably be most interested in the bathrooms—two feature spa-style shower enclosures, and one contains a clawfoot tub.

Ballston Penthouse with Views from Almost Every Room

In some cities, a ninth-floor penthouse would offer a view into a ninth floor unit in an adjacent 30-floor high-rise. In Arlington, however, a ninth floor penthouse means skyline views. This two-bedroom, top-floor unit in the Hawthorn building in Ballston, has pretty incredible panoramas, thanks to giant floor-to ceiling windows in almost every room. The only corner of the place that doesn’t offer postcard vistas is the bathroom, which is, thankfully, windowless.
