NoVa Best New Listings: Clarendon, Penrose, East Falls Church

by Sarah Godfrey

In this week’s edition of NoVa Best New Listings, we look at a Clarendon condo that features low-rise amenities in a high-rise building, a Penrose Cape Cod with a separate space that could serve a number of purposes, and a Metro-adjacent Arlington one-bedroom unit for under $400,000.

Clarendon High-Rise Condo Unit with Private Patio, Entrance

There are numerous benefits to high-rise living — taking an elevator to one’s front door instead of having to hoof it up stairs and the absence of yard work are just a couple. But there is a definite downside, too—forced elevator chats with neighbors after a long day probably tops the list. This window-filled two-bedroom in the Clarendon 1021 building has all of the amenities of a high-rise condo (a gym, a rooftop pool), but it’s a ground floor unit with a private entrance and patio. That means no awkward chats or long elevator rides with an antsy dog with a full bladder.

1940 Arlington Cape Cod with Separate Studio Building

Even if you’re living in a large, airy house, like this four-bedroom Cape Cod in the Penrose section of Arlington, sometimes it’s nice to have a retreat. This home has two—a screened porch just off the dining room and a 20-by-15-foot studio space that is separate from the house. The studio has plumbing, electricity, heat and air conditioning, so it could be an artist’s space, a home office, a guest room, a playroom or just a place to get away.

On the Orange Line for Under $400,000

This one-bedroom condo with an open floorplan and wide-plank hardwood floors has an Arlington address, but it’s also just a few blocks from downtown Falls Church. The Westlee building sits above a Bear Rock Cafe and just around the corner from the East Falls Church Metro. Walk a few blocks and you run right into the State Theatre and the shops of West Broad Street.

    I live in 1021 - the basement level unit is nice but has a few major drawbacks: ~$80K more expensive than the last comparable sale, owner recently sold one of his two parking spaces, the unit is right next to an exterior wall on one side. Also, the layout leaves no place for a table.
