NoVa Best New Listings: Alcova Heights, Clarendon, Four Mile Run

  • April 15th 2012

In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at an Alcova Heights Cape Cod with family rooms in both the basement and attic, a one-bedroom Arlington condo that is serene even though it’s right next to I-395, and a four-bedroom Clarendon craftsman that sits right between a Metro station and a park.

Handsome Cape Cod with Amazing Attic Space

There is hardly a single-family home in Northern Virginia that hasn’t converted a previously dank basement into a serviceable family room. This handsome Alcove Heights Cape Cod is no exception — there is a lower-level rec room and the three-bedroom home also has a top-level/attic family room. And it’s not some dusty, crawl space with a couple of cast-off chairs accessed by a pull down ladder, either. There are beautiful wood floors, modern light fixtures, huge windows, and even a skylight.

Gorgeous Craftsman Home Sandwiched between Park and Metro

This renovated Craftsman has an airy, open floor plan, a number of bedrooms fit for kids, and what is quite possibly the nicest fireplace in Arlington. But even with all of those great features, the home’s location is probably the most impressive thing about it. Hershelle Milliken park is almost the home’s backyard, and the Virginia Square Metro station is just two blocks north of its arts-and-crafts-style front door.

Quiet One-Bedroom Convenient to the Pentagon

Through some feat of modern engineering, the Grove at Arlington condo complex is a quiet little community despite the fact that it sits right atop I-395. This one-bedroom kicks up the tranquility even further with its serene blue bathroom, light-filled main living area, and decent-sized balcony, which faces one of the complex’s quietest surrounding streets. And just in case relaxing in this apartment oasis ever gets old, it’s just minutes away from the restaurants of Shirlington, the shops of Pentagon City, the main street of Del Ray and a short highway trip to DC.
