Stratford Hills Homes for Sale

Located in North Arlington, Virginia, close to the northwestern border, is the well-to-do community of Stratford Hills. Comprised entirely of detached single-family homes, this residential neighborhood is bordered by Country Club Manor to the north, Country Club Hills to the east, Rock Spring to the south and Woodland Acres as well as Fairfax County to the west.

Stratford Hills was primarily developed between the late 1940s and late 1950s. That said, you will find more recent construction, much of which comes from tear-downs and other extensive rebuilding. The neighborhood is known for classic Colonial Revival styles but you’ll also find Cape Cods, Arts & Crafts, and various mid-century styles including some interesting contemporary looks. Homes for sale generally start in the high six figures, topping out at around $2 million.

Curving and gently hilly streets, lined with mature trees and featuring manicured lawns—that’s the look in Stratford Hills and it’s certainly similar to other neighborhoods in the area. The homes aren’t as quire as old as in Old Glebe, although the comparison is fairly relative. The neighborhood is also just a few blocks from the well-known Washington Golf & Tennis Club which has been around for over a century. The club features an impressive golf course, swimming, tennis, dining and other activities and has long been a bastion of Washingtonian high society.

Stratford Hills’ place in history is cemented by having the first secondary school in Virginia to be integrated, that being Stratford Junior High in 1959. The school has since been replaced by H-B Woodlawn. With walkable streets and plenty of greenery, including Stratford Park as well as Rock Spring Park to the south, this is a sought-after real estate destination with a scarcity of active listings. Regardless, homes for sale do crop up here and there, usually with hefty price tags attached.
