Arlington Forest is a fantastic community of over 600 homes with easy access to Arlington Blvd. The neighborhood features a blend of architectural styles and eras ranging from original 1940s single-family homes to craftsman and contemporary new builds. Many of the homes have also been renovated or expanded. 


The neighborhood is in the ideal location, just minutes from Ballston Quarter, Clarendon, and Rosslyn, all of which have a plethora of shops, restaurants, and entertainment. Pentagon City is just 4 miles away and features some of the finest collections of retail stores, cafes, top-quality dining, and Amazon HQ2. There also are several metro stations nearby, including the Ballston-MU metro and Virginia Square-GMU metro. In addition, Washington D.C. is just a short drive away with convenient access via the Francis Scott Key Bridge. 


For those that enjoy spending time outdoors, the neighborhood is close to several parks, including Arlington Forest Park, Bluemont Park, and Bon Air Park, which has a variety of amenities on a 24-site. The park also features a beautiful rose garden with over 120 varieties of roses, just in time for spring! The nearby Lubber Run Community Center has a plethora of activities including fitness programs, sports courts, trails, outdoor spaces, and a wellness studio. 


Arlington Forest is a part of Arlington County’s top-rated school system. Young residents attend the Barrett Elementary, Kenmore Middle, and Washington-Liberty school pyramid. The neighborhood is near several commuter routes, including the GW Parkway, I-395, and I-495. It’s centrally located with quick access to everything the area offers while also providing privacy and local scenery.
