Custom Home on the Market Embraces Convenient and Quaint Neighborhood of Lyon Village

Custom Home on the Market Embraces Convenient and Quaint Neighborhood of Lyon Village

This elegant classic colonial on the market offers exquisite detailing, the latest modern amenities, and the opportunity to take in the spring season with its outdoor patio and kitchen

The Neighborhood

Walking down mature tree-lined sidewalks to the neighborhood parks, playgrounds and nearby shopping contributes to the small-town feel of Lyon Village, one of Arlington’s most sought after residential communities. Frank Lyon purchased this land, formerly Robert Cruit’s 19th century weekend and holiday estate and dairy farm, and established Lyon Village, a true community that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1923. Colonial, Tudor and Classical Revival styles are among the distinctive homes within the neighborhood, which embraces the custom brick home at 1839 N. Herndon Street as one of its own.
