NoVa Best New Listings: Old Town, Fairlington Arbor, Seminary Ridge

by Sarah Godfrey

In this week’s edition of NoVa Best New Listings, we look at a one-bedroom in the low-rise Carlyle Square development, a Fairlington Arbor townhouse that offers two bedrooms for the price of one, and a large Seminary Ridge home with a three-season porch.

Modern One-Bedroom at the Other Carlyle

The Carlyle Towers are one of the best-known developments between the King Street and Eisenhower Avenue Metro stations in Old Town Alexandria, but they aren’t the only residential option. This one bedroom, in the low-rise Condos at Carlyle Square development has ultra-modern built-ins, an open floor plan, and other sleek touches, including sliding doors and giant windows. The condo sits above retail, but that doesn’t mean it gets the sort of noise usually associated with mixed-use buildings. There aren’t any raucous bars or restaurants that stay open late—tenants include a hair salon and a cute little chocolate shop.

Fairlington Arbor Townhouse for Under $400,000

This townhouse is listed as a one-bedroom, but a portion of the home’s lower level has been converted into a guest bedroom. That means this is essentially a two-bedroom, two-bath house in the Fairlington Arbor section of Arlington for under $400,000. That price is pretty amazing for the location, regardless of the listing’s condition, so the home’s slate patio, giant rec room, and decorative molding in the dining room just sweeten the deal, really.

Seminary Ridge Four-Bedroom with Three-Season Porch

This split-level home across from Alexandria’s Ft. Williams Park has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and one giant screened porch. Once upon a time, this sort of enclosed outdoor area was referred to as a three-season porch, but when winters in this area are as mild as the one we’ve just had, the porch can be enjoyed almost year-round.

    I find the noise comments about the Carlyle Square condo interesting. There was a restaurant there and noise issues were apparently a big problem. It's closed now - not sure if the City revoked its SUP or they just decided to move elsewhere. Haven't been by in a while so I don't know if the space is vacant or rented to a quieter tenant.
