Centrally located in Arlington County, Brandon Village is conveniently close to urban hotspots but still possesses a “small town” charm. Located immediately south of Wilson Boulevard and the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor, this smallish community is home to only 300 properties or so. But the homes for sale are choice indeed, from antique original Craftsman cottages to new upscale condos and townhouses.

Like its neighbors Ballston, Bon Air and Bluemont, Brandon Village dates back to agrarian days—this is one of the oldest parts of the county, once sparsely populated by colonial farmers with large land grants. But it was the arrival of electric streetcars in the early 1900s that accelerated residential development.
Back then, Bluemont Junction was the merging place for two traditional railroads and one streetcar line that shared common tracks. The railroads were especially instrumental in carrying freight and building supplies such as Craftsman catalog kit homes from Sears Roebuck, while the streetcars served as commuter travel for residents to and from Washington DC. The oldest homes in Brandon Village date to the early 20th century with an increase in development during the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s. There has also been a more recent trend of condos, upscale townhouses and teardowns resulting in pricy custom single-family homes.
Architectural styles cover the bases here, with Victorian farmhouses, the aforementioned kit catalog cottages and bungalows, Colonial Revivals with enclosed side porches and some interesting brick and clapboard Cape Cod hybrids. Newer custom homes often tend toward Arts & Crafts or new Colonial looks. Condos and townhouses tend to be concentrated along the N. Glebe Road border to the east, and are similar in size and style to those in the Ballston, Clarendon and Courthouse neighborhoods.
Prices in Brandon Village aren’t nearly as affordable as they were a few years back. You can expect to pay anywhere from around $600,000 to well over a million. As you might expect in a small neighborhood in a prime part of Arlington, active listings can be scarce.
Residents have lots of local conveniences, from nearby Ballston Common to a host of popular bars, restaurants and boutique shops along Clarendon and Wilson Boulevards. The Ballston Metro Station is within walking distance—about half a mile. There’s also the charming Bluemont/Bon Air Walkabout with connecting walking trails that wind around the old rail lines with stops at historic sites, parks, gardens, cafes and other local indie businesses.
With an eclectic and highly appealing blend of old and new, Brandon Village presents the best of Arlington—a small, quiet neighborhood that is integrally linked with the city’s current exciting modernity.
