More About Yorktown Homes For Sale - Arlington Virginia

Yorktown Homes For Sale in Arlington VALike so many neighborhoods in Arlington, Yorktown was mostly farmland for many years with a few notable estates and manors in the 1800's. Modern residential development began around 1920 and accelerated in the 1930's. While the neighborhood wasn't officially named until 1945, there had already been a fair amount of construction up to that point. It's fair to say however, that the end of World War II brought a new housing boom. Even today, new construction continues, including tear-downs and build-ups, including new variations on the classic Arts & Crafts style.

The median sales price for homes in Yorktown is $840,000. There is a range, but it tends to escalate rapidly. At one end are a handful of condos starting around $250,000, and older two and three-bedroom homes that have not been expanded, starting around $550,000. The upper-end homes tend to be renovated and expanded, or large new construction houses. A good example is a recent listing for a beautiful custom stone and hard-plank Colonial with nearly 5,000 feet of living space and a full acre of land, offered for $2.717 million.

It is fair to say that life in Yorktown changed forever when its high school was constructed in 1960. One of three public high schools in Arlington, Yorktown High has a student body of 1,786 students. Listed by Newsweek Magazine as one of the top 100 schools in the nation, it has brought pride and recognition into the neighborhood over the past half-century. It has also brought an influx of new residents. Yorktown High has a robust athletics program and its students routinely test high in academics. This attractive and expansive school is close-by to two popular parks, Chestnut Hills Park and Greenbrier Park.
