Charming, yet contemporary!
With an area of 0.345 square miles, Ballston has a variety of luxury to moderately-priced condos. The 68-unit Ballston Row townhouse community is a big draw for move-up condo owners wanting to remain in Arlington, close enough to the excitement and nightlife, yet feeling away from the noise once the doors are closed. Prices range from approximately $800,000 to $1,400,000 for three to five bedrooms. Single-family homes are found mostly on the outskirts. Estimated median home value is $532,000.
Ideal place to live....close to everything!
Ballston is an ideal place to live for people who work in the city. It includes businesses, apartments, condos, schools, shopping malls (i.e. Ballston Common Mall), night life, restaurants and parks. It is estimated that approximately 22% of homeowners have lived here for over five years. The area is pedestrian friendly and with the Metro service covering both Ballston and Virginia Square, people don’t need to use a car to get around as much as in other places.
Schools that serve Ballston
With a population of 12,319, Ballston is home to highly educated professionals as well as a trendy young crowd. It has the highest number of post- graduates in the United States. Ballston is part of the Arlington County Public School system and is served by Ashlawn Elementary School, Swanson Middle School and Washington Lee High School.
Ballston Quarter......the new face of Ballston!
There is major redevelopment taking place in Ballston right now. If you wish to cash in some years down the road, do not miss the opportunity to claim a property of any type in this area, if you can find it. The plans approved for the Ballston Quarter Redevelopment some years ago is now well on its way. The full-fledged makeover of the Ballson Common Mall is slated to be completed this year – 2018.
It encompasses various facades and living units above some of the stores; a new condo complex of twenty-two (22) stores; a mixed-use building with residential and retail uses on the site of the former Macy’s Home Store; new plazas and mews and significant garage improvements – still all within two blocks of the Metro.
There will be even more restaurants for a place that is already a foodie haven! And more nightlife opportunities if you can believe it.
If the surfeit of restaurants and nightlife is not sufficient for you, then perhaps some of the parks, gyms and other recreational activities will do the trick. And don’t forget Arlington’s Main Library, Curtis Lee Mansion and the Arlington Visitor Center. If all else fails, remember that the added excitement of DC is just a skip and a jump from Ballston Arlington VA.
