Arlington, VA Neighborhoods: Tara - Leeway Heights

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

Tara - Leeway Heights Located in North Arlington and bounded by Washington Blvd, George Mason, Lexington/Jefferson streets, and 22nd St N, the neighborhood of Tara - Leeway Heights remains one of Arlington's most popular.  Nestled between Ballston and East Falls Church metro stations along the orange line, and with easy access to major transportation routes I-66 and Route 29, the subdivision has many advantages for commuters.

The neighborhood consists entirely of single family, detached homes, most of which were built in the 1940s.  Similar to nearby neighborhoods like Westover Overlee Knolls, and Larchmont, the homes are primarily brick, and in the cape cod, colonial, and rambler styles.

Tara - Leeway Heights is a neighborhood steeped in Civil War history. After the battle of Bull Run, Union forces built up defences around Arlington, and "Halls' Hill" as the home of Basil Hall's home was called, was between Union and Confederate encampments.  It was home to the only major defensive battle in Arlington County during the Civil War.  Following the war, Basil Hall began to sell off lots from his Homestead Tract.

Though there are no parks within its boundaries, Parkhurst Park, High View Park, and Lacey Woods Park are all nearby.

At the time of this writing in April 2009, there are just TWO active listings! In the past year, there have been 24 homes sold, with list prices ranging from $499,900 to $1,179,000 (average of $731,323), and were on the market an average of 51 days. (Source: MRIS 4/26/09)
