Westover has long been known as a quiet, eclectic "urban village" in North Arlington. Home to shops and restaurants, it has a very small town feel, but with big city advantages, like being close to the Metro and major commuting routes. Westover is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Westover has a small "main street" area with a hardware store, post office, and restaurants including the very popular Lost Dog Cafe (great pizza and sandwiches), its sister restaurant the stray cat, and Lebanese Taverna. Westover is an enclave of mostly small colonials-- some with just 2 bedrooms and 1 bath and quite affordable for the very convenient location nestled between Ballston and East Falls Church metros along the Orange Line.
As of May 1, 2009, there is just ONE home listed for sale in Westover, a 2br Colonial listed for $525,000. In the past year, there were 14 homes sold, ranging in list price from $425,000 to $649,000. The average days on market for sold properties was 88, and the average sold price was $522,979 (Source: MRIS as of 5/1/2009)
Here is the summary from the Register:
Located in northwestern Arlington County, Virginia, the Westover Historic District is a residential neighborhood of 418 primary resources on 143.363 acres. The neighborhood was constructed in five phases: Westover Apartments (1939), Westover Hills (1940-1941), Keene's Addition to Westover (1941), Westover Park (1942, 1943, 1947, 1948), and Mason's Addition to Westover (1955-1957). It is bounded by 18th Street North and North Longfellow Street on the north, North Jefferson Street on the east, Interstate 66 (I-66) on the south, and McKinley Road on the west.
The residential streets of Westover are lined with Colonial Revival-style single-family dwellings, twin houses, duplexes, and multi-family garden apartments primarily constructed by Mace Properties, Inc. with mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). The buildings are sited away from the streets to provide for ample yards and many of the houses have paved driveways to provide for off-street parking. Rolling hills and clusters of woodland define the neighborhood, which is interspersed with winding streets and cul-de-sacs.
The commercial district, centered along North Washington Boulevard and Patrick Henry Drive, contains a shopping center, the Claude A. Swanson Junior High School, and the Westover Baptist Church. Swanson Park, located along the southwest border of the school site, connects the school grounds and the neighborhood with pedestrian paths. A planned park is located in the southern section of the neighborhood and is presently known as Westover Park.
