Located blocks from the restaurants and shops of Clarendon, 709 N. Cleveland Street is a classic Lyon Park house. Built in 1925, the house was part of the wave of new construction that, during the first decades of the 20th century, transformed the area around two railroad lines from sleepy farmland into a series of commuter neighborhoods.
The house features classic details on the exterior and interior. Its original wood weatherboard, wide window trim, pediment front portico, and deep eaves reveal the historic character. Inside, the house retains the careful craftsmanship of its era – the brick fireplace surround, warm oak floors, and classically inspired door and window trim reflect its age and charm. High ceilings and large windows add to the livability.
With 3 bedrooms and 1 bath and totaling 1,250 sf of living space, this home is listed for $778,800 and will be open this Sunday, September 14 from 1 to 4 PM.

On occasion, Preservation Arlington will highlight unique historic houses that are on the market in Arlington County. We hope to raise awareness of some of the true housing gems we have here. Some might be in great condition and just need to be maintained by their next owner, while others may need a steward with heart and passion to restore and stabilize the property.
