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.
- Full Listing: 1021 Garfield Street, North, #B26, Arlington, Va. (map)
- Price: $572,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 2005
- Listing Agent: Michael Rosen, FranklyRealty.com
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.
- Full Listing: 2509 3rd Street South, Arlington, Va. (map)
- Price: $595,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1940
- Listing Agent: Susan Sarcone, McEnearney Associates
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.
- Full Listing: 2200 Westmoreland Street North #229, Arlington, Va. (map)
- Price: $385,000
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Year Built: 2006
- Listing Agent: Adam Gallegos, Arbour Realty
