The Super Bowl starts at 6:30 p.m. Sunday. If you want to find a pregame activity that doesn’t involve anxiously pacing back and forth, misappropriating game time snacks or watching yet another retrospective of the past NFL season, perhaps you can head out to find the home in which you’ll be watching next year’s Super Bowl.

There are more than a dozen open houses scheduled in Arlington this weekend. See our real estate section for a full listing of open houses. Here are a few highlights:

    LOL at Evergreene trying to unload that horror of a rowhouse for 1.1M at Lee and Veitch. I’ve seen their efforts daily for months now – “Only one left! Open house today!”

    The turret on the corner affords an amazing view of 6 lanes of traffic and the nest of power lines and pole-mounted transformers 3 feet away. Reach out the window and you might get free electricity. No alarm clock needed when the buses start running early on weekday mornings.

    I kind of hope it never sells just to send a message to developers that Arlington homebuyers aren’t completely off their rockers.

      Gotta agree. I was curious so I went to one of the open houses. They used some nice touches and finishes inside and out, but I was honestly embarassed for them. It’s like someone took a really nice luxury townhome and left it in the dryer on high heat for too long. All of the spaces feel really cramped. So much so that I almost LOL’d when I saw the “master” bedroom.

      It’s a convenient location if you don’t mind the surrounding view, but even so I figure they’re probably a good $150-200K above where they should be. By comparison, a lesser-finished but nicer feeling townhouse behind Market Common that faces a large park (a MUCH better location than these) just sold in a weekend for $990K. And these have been on the market for how long?

      P.S. And that pic of the “Cathedral view” from the listing? Taken from a telescope. It’s practically a spec on the horizon from there. That’s almost false advertising.

        And the other photo is the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, no? I mean, that must’ve been quite a lens they had on their camera. They might as well have snapped some shots of Saturn and claimed you have a view of the planet’s rings from your window.

        • Buckingham Beauty

          Yep, that’s the Basilica.

    • Road DIet

      Totally agree. We went to an open house, out of curiosity. The quality of the finishes was really bad for a house of this price.

      Example: given that this is on Lee highway, you would expect the windows to be reasonably soundproof. Nope, they are just cheap windows.

      A few weeks before we went to look at another new apartment building on Lee, across from the Italian Store roughly. Their windows were amazing — no noise, nothing.

  • Exhibitionist

    Agree w/CW. Click on the listing, go to the 9th photo — you got a tub in front of two windows with no curtains looking onto Lee. AND — look closely — there’s a dude’s foot in the upper left corner on the scaffolding. For 1.1M, you can find a nice real house somewhere else in Arlington.

    • nuna

      that foot view costs extra.

      • Rex Ryan

        I can understand that.

    • Curtains for you

      Yes, because you can’t install curtains… Don’t most people install curtains when they BUY the place. I say yes.

      • Buckingham Beauty

        Why, curtainly!

  • Sheriff Gonna Getcha

    Didn’t the rest of that development sell out already tho? If the buses/powerlines/transformers are such a massive problem, how did the others sell?

    • CW

      Because this one is right on the corner, where the pole is, so it gets all the pole-mounted stuff right up next to it, plus two streets worth of power lines.

  • R. Griffon

    The one on Tazewell is pretty swank. I like the fullsize fireplace in the master. It looks like someone just plopped a king bed down right in the middle of the living room. In a good way. And on .4 acres? Nice.

    But on a sad note, I saw the records on the wall of the one bedroom and realized my kids would probably think they were frisbees. :-/

    Four Mile Run is prime radiation zone from that power plant
