Sitting high on the hill overlooking Columbia Pike is this grand old house from a another day. 1724 Columbia Pike is a five-bedroom and three-bathroom home that is newly relisted (click for slideshow)for $635,000.
Built in 1936 this home has huge rooms that are perfect for entertaining. The house also has great details from mature plantings outside to interior features such as two brick fireplaces, wide graceful stairs, a full attic, and beautiful hardwood floors. Located just 1/2 mile from the Pentagon, it is also just steps from the exciting Columbia Pike corridor.
The house also has great neighbors. Directly behind it is the Harry W. Gray House (c. 1881), a rare (for Arlington) brick rowhouse-style home. Harry W. Gray was a former slave on Robert E. Lee’s Arlington House estate. It was put on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register in 2004.

This is a great opportunity to own a nice house that was built in the middle of yesterday and located at the front door of tomorrow. See full listing here.
