Country Club Hills Neighborhood Homes for Sale
The name of the community pretty much says it all. Country Club Hills in North Arlington is an exclusive place with a stone entryway, directly to the north of the Washington Golf and Country Club. Built in its present location around 1908 and known as the “playground of the presidents," the club itself presents the height of exclusivity. The neighborhood is no less tweedy, with large, gracious and expensive homes for sale.
The land that now makes up Country Club Hills dates back to the Civil War era Grunwell estate. That changed when the Brumback Realty Company of Clarendon began developing 126 acres of beautiful hills and woods with views of Washington, DC. The first 15 homes were delivered in 1929, with construction continuing over the decades, although significantly slowing after World War II.
Homes for sale in Country Club Hills list on average for about $1.5 million, with prices often climbing well above that amount. Architectural styles were somewhat different from other parts of Arlington during the neighborhood’s early development. English Tudor homes using a combination of brick, stone and wood are prevalent, as are Colonials.
But it is the Spanish designs with tiled roofs that are notably rare in DC Metro. There are also some Mid-Century Modern styles that were introduced after the war, as well as newer custom homes for sale.
This bucolic neighborhood enjoys a tight-knit feel with block parties and holiday events, including an annual Fourth of July celebration and parade. The country club set is very much in evidence—why would you not want to belong once you move into this eponymously named community?
From impeccable landscaping to picturesque tree-lined streets that are just perfect for jogging with the dog, Country Club Hills is a quintessential example of “Old Arlington.” Located in the northern quadrant of the country and not far from the Potomac River, this is one of Northern Virginia’s most appealing upscale neighborhoods.
