More About Waycroft Homes For Sale - Arlington Virginia
The Wavcroft-Woodland neighborhood dates back to early land grants and was farm land during the 1800's. The earliest known homes in the area were built in the 1850's and the oldest standing home was built shortly after the Civil War by a Union office, at 14th and Evergreen streets. It wasn't until the 1930's that major change occurred, with a number of Cape Cod homes being built, as well as a subdivision called Woodlawn Village, built between 1934-1939, also featuring Cape-style homes. It was this development project that slightly expanded the borders and led to the merging of the names. Why this is still a matter of discussion 75 years later, is anybody's guess.
Waycroft-Woodlawn is often referred to as the Garden Spot of Arlington. Trees planted during the 1930's have spread and canopied over the streets, and azaleas and flowering shrubs are everywhere. The post World War II era saw another development boom with architectural styles including the aforementioned Cape Cods, as well as Colonials, Craftsman, Ramblers and others typical to the area. The median listing price in the neighborhood is $725,000, and properties are almost exclusively detached single-family homes.
While Waycroft-Woodlawn is known for charming homes with front porches, an abundance of trees and a a bucolic small-town feel, it is close to a number of urbanized areas and in fact, is less than a mile from the Ballston Metro. Residents here relish their oasis in the heart of Arlington, only minutes from Washington DC. Schools in the area include Glebe Elementary (which replaced Woodlawn Elementary some years back), Swanson Middle School and Washington-Lee High. The popular Lacey Woods Park abuts the neighborhood at George Mason Drive and Washington Blvd. For more information about Waycroft homes for sale in Arlington VA, call us at (202) 798-3600.
