Rock Spring Homes for Sale

Located in North Arlington is the residential and quite upscale neighborhood of Rock Spring. This charming community is intersected by N. Glebe Road and lies just southwest of both Stafford Albemarle Glebe and Old Glebe. It is also adjacent such pricy subdivisions as Country Club Manor and Country Club Hills, as well as the Washington Golf and Country Club. Are you starting to get the picture yet?

While the area itself is rich in history, modern residential platting and development didn’t begin in Rock Springs until the late 1930s, continuing in force until the late 1950s. Homes wind along tranquil streets with plenty of mature trees, with a number of properties backing up to woodland areas. Architectural styles include various Colonial types, Tudor, Arts & Crafts, Cape and more modest brick Ramblers, many of which have been remodeled, built up or reconstructed altogether.

Homes for sale in Rock Spring tend to be pricy, starting in the mid six figures and quickly climbing to over a million dollars. You won’t find any condos for sale here—it’s all detached single-family residences. And, it’s not uncommon to find deer or other peaceful woodland creatures traipsing across lawns. After all, Jamestown Park is in the neighborhood and the Gulf Branch Nature Center is also very close by.

But perhaps the most popular greenspace is that which belongs to the venerable Washington Golf and Country Club, located at the southeastern tip of the community. Once officially known as the Club of the Presidents, due to Presidents Taft, Coolidge, Harding and Wilson who were all active members, this swanky private club continues to be a place where DC’s elite comes to golf, swim, play tennis and dine. And if you choose to purchase a property in Rock Spring, you can join the crowd!

From lush lawns to old and gracious homes for sale to organized community events, this is one of Washington Metro’s continually popular residential communities. The neighborhood is also home to the Rock Spring Cooperative Preschool, founded in 1943 and the oldest cooperative preschool in Arlington.
