Arlington Ridge Road is extremely picturesque with very large mansion-like homes and tall mature oak trees. Still, it is an urban village and so there are many apartment buildings as well in addition to condominiums and smaller single family homes. The Representative Condominium comes to mind as well as Pentagon Ridge at 1515 where it is said Chinese spies were housed at one time.
Although you can find some condominium units under $400,000, single family homes can only be found above the $800,000 range and well into the millions.
