ON THE MARKET: Stylish living at Tower Villas – Inside NoVA

This post was originally published on this site


Tower Villas long has been ahead of its time, providing a sumptuous backdrop for those ready to trade in the single-family lifestyle for an easy-living property that caters to their every desire while featuring a location right in the heart of Arlington’s walk- and transit-friendly urban village.

And this week’s features property provides an enchanting opportunity – it’s a 1,710-square-foot, 3 bedroom/2 bath unit with an eastern exposure that includes glimpses of the U.S. Capitol and Washington Monument (perfect for 4th of July parties), plus walk-in pantry/storage/laundry facilities, bonus storage and – this one will make you salivate! – not one but two deeded garage spaces, which in the Orange Line corridor routinely are valued at $40,000 apiece.

All this, and you have the amenities that have made this condominium a watchword for high-gloss living, from the exceptional pool areas to the exercise room (with a major expansion in the planning stage) to the 24-hour lobby desk.

Plus . . . it’s a pet-friendly community, and the reasonable condo fee covers utilities, even basic cable! Those are just some of the reasons there is so little turnover of units here.

The property currently is on the market, listed at $825,000 by Carol Temple of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Located just a block and a half to the Virginia Square Metro station, the property offers easy access to the entire swath of the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor with so many features almost at your doorstep. (We enjoy this quip: “Virginia Square is like Clarendon for grown-ups.” It’s clever and it fits.)

The well-laid-out and amply-proportioned floor plan provides flexibility and versatility, all starting with the large (360-square-foot) living room, which opens to the 20-foot-wide balcony from which you enjoy easterly views.

The separate dining room, another upgrade compared to many condos, is comfortably proportioned and offers easy access to the kitchen area, which provides everything you need in a space that is compact but decidedly not cramped.

The master retreat is located at the far end of the unit, providing privacy, plentiful space, lots of closet area and a full bath.

The two additional bedrooms also showcase the versatility of the layout, as they can be used for whatever purposes desired. They share a full bath, with a tub.

“Pampered” is a word often used to describe the way owners are treated by the Tower Villas staff, from the front desk to the on-site engineering personnel that can provide repairs and improvements at modest costs. The monthly condo fee is a good value for all that it provides.

Whether you’re looking to downsize from a single-family home, or simply desiring to be in the heart of the urban-village core of Arlington, this is a rare opportunity, so there is no time to delay. Go take a look today.
