Tucked away among rolling hills and large shade trees in South Arlington is the historic Fairlington Village with brick-faced townhomes and condo buildings.
Originally built in the early 1940s as priority housing for defense workers and their families, the complex remained a rental community until the 1970’s when it was renovated and converted into condos for sale sporting names like Fairlington Arbors, Commons, Glen, Green, Meadows, and Mews. The community features amenities such as swimming pools, tennis courts, parks, and a rent-able community center.
Located along South Abingdon Street, Fairlington Villages community is highly sought after partly due to its convenient location.
