    0 Bed?

      • nom de guerre

        Conveniently located next door to the Harris Teeter sewage backup and only one Josh Ess block from the Water Pollution Control Plant.

        • WeiQiang

          I forgot that you guys were arguing over whether it was an African block or a European block

          • South Awwlington

            What about an Asian Block or a Siberian Block?

          • WeiQiang

            As nom de guerre can explain, the actual distance is determined by the distance that a fully-ladened African or European swallow can fly in the amount of time that it takes the Arlington County Board to override the recommendations of the Planning Board in approving a new office building. In human terms, this is about 7 seconds.

            There are no Asian or Siberian swallows, as their populations were decimated once Sam’s Corner started offering swallow-kabobs with mint chutney on their lunch menu.

          • nom de guerre


          • South Awwlington

            We all have too much time on our hands… 🙂

  • CW

    Hmm, what neighborhood is that Upland listing in?

    • HighViewPunk

      Hope they have flood insurance.

    • AnswerMan

      The Upland Street house is is Broyhill Forest/Hill. It is also open on Sunday afternoon.

    • South Awwlington

      You couldn’t resist. The upshot is you can go rafting.

    • nom de guerre

      If you purchase this property you also qualify for a free lifetime membership in the Donaldson Run Yacht Club and a complimentary tote and t-shirt.

  • drax

    WTF, 2138 Patrick Henry? Who designed you?

    • South Awwlington

      Gross is the only way to describe the outside. It almost look trailer parkesque.

      • CW

        And when the realtor only takes ONE outside photo of a $1M+ home, you just KNOW that there’s some lovely little surprise hanging around out back…e.g. backs up to a ravine/superfund site/etc.

        • South Awwlington

          Perhaps its on a lot only slightly bigger than the footprint of the house. True McMansion type. Or the deck was never built and it has those hideous safety guards on the sliding doors.

      • drax

        Looks like a classic new money McMansion.

        • drax

          And a look at the description supports my theory:

          CUSTOM BUILT HOME….5 full baths…Elevator shaft ready for finishing.

    • John Fontain

      I think it graced the May 2012 cover of Architectural Disaster magazine.

      The short-sightedness of some people is unbelievable – they won’t spend an extra few thousand on quality architectural services when designing their house and then end up with an eyesore like this.

      • drax

        But it was their DREAM house. Until they ran out of money, before the elevator arrived.

        Check out the photos of the interior – a central, slightly curved staircase in the middle of an open plan.

        • sunflower

          i believe the architect moonlights as a stager

      • drax

        Oh, and you know how people on this site debate the need for a realtor?

        This one will need a realtor. A really good one.

      • WeiQiang

        my South Asian friends prefer to say “diz-ahhh-stuh”.

    • WeiQiang

      *inhaling through my teeth* um, yeah.

  • South Awwlington

    only in N Arlington can you get a house that is as classy as Patrick Henry Drive on the inside with fake stone on the outside. Yuck. And for that price, no thanks.

  • South Awwlington

    4942 34th Road North is way cute and a far better deal than that $hit show on Pat Henry!

    • CW

      I certainly agree, but it still bothers me to see the sorts of horrid siding-clad appendages manage to grow off of their nice, symmetrical little brick colonials.

      • KalashniKEV

        +1, that shizz looks flammable.

      • South Awwlington

        Siding isn’t brick, for sure. But sometimes you are better off with siding rather than trying to match up 50 year old brick. This house reminds me of one I knew quite well as a kid back in PA.

        • CW

          I guess I’m just a purist; I like my brick colonials as is, please. A modest deck or porch off the back would by fine, but not whatever THAT is hanging around the side.

    • drax

      It’s extremely nice. Except it’s 3 blocks to Jamestown School, so it’s overlooking those horrid relocatables, and all your neighbors would be douches in the PTA.

      • South Awwlington

        This is true.

      • Arlingtoon

        Tell me about it. They’re my neighbors!

  • NrNy2ArlVa

    On the 5300 Block of Columbia Pike not only do you get a Condominium — 2 Bed / 2 Bath for $271,900, you also get a front row seat when Arlington County Board Chair Mary Hynes will help dedicate a new obelisk monument honoring Corporal Troyano helped to deliver a healthy, 6 pound, 3 ounce baby girl.

    • WeiQiang


      … but please fill up with gas before you enter the neighborhood. That Shell station is going away.

      • South Awwlington

        I prefer the Exxon at Glebe and CP although that Gasoline station is Right in, right out and uses too much driftwood siding approved by the County Board in the Wakefield High School Form Based Bond offering.

      • nom de guerre

        The use of the driftwood siding resulted in a LEED Platinum Certification and 75 new siding installers.

        • South Awwlington


  • gnushell

    The Patrick Henry house reminds me of a few in McLean where it was obvious the architect was just laughing at their tasteless nouveau riche clients. I’m shocked the house isn’t surrounded by ornate white wrought iron fencing.

    While there are interior elements not to my taste, what we’re shown is at least appealing.

  • Mary-Austin

    I’m willing to bet money the place on Patrick Henry was built by some guys from the Weenie Beenie corner and not a real contractor.
    Anyone who pays over a million for that is a sucker.
