More About Penrose Homes For Sale - Arlington Virginia

Penrose Homes For Sale in Arlington VALike many parts of Arlington, Penrose dates back to early English land grants. It was subdivided in 1882 and at the time, was home to a number of free African-Americans. Residential development began in earnest around the turn of the century and by 1926, there were 75 homes. Construction accelerated in the 1930's due to the growth of federal government and military infrastructure. By the dawning of of World War II, there were around 175 homes in the area, including Queen Anne Victorians, Italianate-style houses and a variety of catalog kit homes. The war years brought an increased need for housing, and Penrose and other communities along Columbia Pike became known for their brick garden-style apartment complexes. Many of those were eventually converted to condos.
