  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two

Arlington Farmhouse on a Large Lot

This Arlington listing sits on a big, grassy lot, though it is in clear view of some denser high-rise areas. The large kitchen, reasonably sized bedrooms and the window seat along the upper level hallway are pluses. Perhaps the coolest part of the farmhouse is the oversized garage in the back, which has a raw upper level that could be finished and turned into a work area, studio or guest room.

  • Full Listing: 4134 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA (map)
  • Price: $712,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two

This listing is a penthouse, with a generous floorplan, a guest suite and a private terrace.

  • Full Listing: 2301 Champlain Street NW, #404 (map)
  • Price: $719,000
  • Bedrooms: Two

    From the outside, the home on the Hill looks nice. Though, not a classic Victorian, as it states on the CBmove website. I would say cozy, though the photos don't make it seem spacious. The layout is also a little strange, especially on the first floor and also the bathroom with the w/d (probably the master bath). Wouldn't you have to add a railing to the staircase, as I think that is necessary for code? The outdoor space is a great bonus.
