Where is Arlington Ridge Road?

Hume School in Arlington VA
Hume School is now a museum about Arlington past.

Arlington Ridge Road traces the crest of Arlington Ridge, a steep rise of land that parallels the Potomac in Virginia.  This the same geographic feature that creates the bluffs in Mclean and the rise of land through Arlington National Cemetery. Throughout Northern Virginia, this rise of land is home to some of the most desirable land in the Metro area and the neighborhood around Arlington Ridge Road is no exception.

Residences here have easy access to DC, Arlington and Alexandria because of both the road network and the neighborhood itself. In addition to easy access to thoroughfares like Rt. 1, I-395 and Army Navy Drive, this old neighborhood has plenty of back streets and cross-streets to help avoid trouble when things back up. In addition because this is an older neighborhood, it’s generally very low density.

The homes in this neighborhood often have sweeping lawns with mature and towering hardwoods.  Many of these homes were built as summer get-aways for old-time Washington DC. Some were not much more than simple cottages. Some are spacious lodges. Many of these homes have had extensive renovations and additions. A good many have been replaced entirely by stately manor homes that speak to the affluence and prestige of this community.

The real estate here is among the priciest in Northern Virginia, but if you’re seeking convenience, elegance and a quiet neighborhood, it’s really tough to beat Arlington Ridge.

Giving & Receiving: Volunteering at Petco

I have found through my own personal experience that volunteering to help shelter dogs at the Petco on Rt1 is very rewarding. To see the joy of dogs (old & young) leaving their store (where they wait for adoption), to go outside for fresh air, is very uplifting. Feeling a slight tug on the other end of the leash, while seeing four legs scrambling on the tile as we approach the automatic sliding glass door. Once outside, the dogs are happy to follow me in any direction, whether it be towards Target, Beacon Mall, or elsewhere. And for me, I’m happy just to see them around their little world.

Grape + Bean is part of the fabric of Old Town in Alexandria VA

Grape + Bean
There is seating at the front of the shop to take a cup of coffee.

Grape and Bean is just another example of an Old Town artisan boutique. Shops like Grape and Bean, or as they call themselves Grape + Bean, are community assets and part of what makes Old Town so special. Long-time Alexandria residents David Gwathmey and Sheera Rosenfeld opened Grape & Bean in 2008. Together they have managed to create a place that is comfortable, warm and welcoming, while offering excellent service and high quality products.

Grape and Bean is a retail wine shop, coffee shop and a wine tasting bar. Along with wine by the glass and coffee by the cup, Grape and Bean offers a food menu with cheese plates and other items that are tailored for sharing. As a wine and coffee shop, Grape and Bean of course retails wine by the bottle and coffee by the pound. I find that they are an excellent resource for gift baskets, and they’ll really put the time in to help you make your best selection.

Grape + Bean
Grape + Bean offers a well-stocked wine inventory.

Comfy Townhomes in Woodmark

 

Woodmark is a community located in Woodbridge, VA, in Prince William County. Its situated right off of Old bridge Road. The townhouses look about mid-sized, maybe a little smaller. The homes are so diverse looking, with many different styles and colors. The streets are wide enough for extra parking on the side of the road. The up-keep of the community is pretty decent. Belmont Bay is also located very close to I-95, route 1, and route 123, making commuting at least a little easier.The appearance of the homes isn’t very attractive on the outside but the neighborhood seems to be pretty quiet and pleasant overall.
