Located in the northernmost part of Arlington, Dover Crystal is home to approximately 147 homes and a population of about 500 people.
Known for its unique curb appeal and wide array of home styles, this small tight-knit community offers a combination of affluence and mid-century design influences. You will find large traditional Colonials and an array of contemporary, modern houses and large multi-story treehouses.
Located close to the Potomac River, Dover Crystal offers plenty of parks and greenspace and miles of hiking and biking trails; including the Blue Jay Way, White Oak Way and the Potomac Heritage and Overlooks trails. Some of these trails even connect within Potomac Overlook Regional Park, which is just at the northern tip of the neighborhood.
One of the most unique characteristics Dover Crystal offers is the elevation changes within the neighborhood, with hilly and wooded terrain, lots of mature trees, very walkable streets and plenty of wildlife.
While Dover Crystal does not have its own Metro Station, the Ballston Metro on the Orange and Silver Lines are close by, and D.C. is just one stoplight away!
