Just Listed in Arlington

Just Listed highlights Arlington properties that just came on the market within the past week. This feature is written and sponsored by Andors Real Estate Group.

Every once in a while, a truly unique, captivating and inspiring home comes to market in Arlington. This week, the Andors Real Estate Group is proud to present a home that has had the same owner since 1960 and is actually two-of-a-kind.

In 1796, the original (Arch Hall) was built in Alexandria and served as the residence for Lewis Lawrence, Nelly Parke Custis and their children when they were not at their Woodlawn Plantation. That property would later be deconstructed and rebuilt in Belmont Bay on a prominent piece of land overlooking the Potomac.

In 1941, a replica of the original was built in Arlington, at 2515 Fort Scott Drive. It was painstakingly built to be as true a rendering of the original as possible, and it has had only two owners.

2515 Fort Scott Drive boasts a grand entry, generous rooms and a graceful flow that will capture your imagination and provide a home for generations. Beautifully sited on a nearly 14,000 sq. ft. corner lot with mature trees and plenty of privacy, it has over 4,300 sq. ft. of finished space on the main and upper levels with a partially finished walk-out lower level. The grand arched entryway runs from front to rear and provides a central focal point for gracious living in this unique home. Its incomparable close-in location is near Metro, schools, shopping, the Pentagon and Amazon’s new National Landing headquarters.

This past week in Arlington, sellers listed some 88 properties for sale while buyers ratified 68 contracts. There are currently 351 homes for sale in Arlington. 126 are detached homes, 25 are townhouses/semi-detached, and 200 are condos. Average days on market (DOM) is 51 and median DOM is 29.

The median list price of currently available properties is $799,900, while the average is $997,537. As these prices continue to fall, and inventory among condos steadily builds, it’s starting to look like condos are falling more out of favor, while the availability of affordable single-family houses is low and new ones get absorbed weekly.

Last year for the same week, sellers listed 41 homes and buyers ratified 57 contracts.
