This quiet and secluded neighborhood is located in the upper northeast of Arlington County. Residents of Bellevue Forest love their community because it is peaceful, well-maintained, dog-friendly, safe, and filled with shady green trees. Nearby schools include Yorktown High School, Arlington Traditional Elementary School, and Williamsburg Middle School.
Established in 1938, John Grunwell created this development, and the name came from his family home. The homes were carefully designed to fit naturally into the characteristics of the lots they occupied, and they exemplify styles such as Ranch Rambler, Colonial Revival, and English Cottage. They are family homes passed down through the generations – it’s rare to find a new build in this area.
The generously-sized homes (primarily built in the 30s, 40s, and 50s) are situated on large, grassy lots surrounded by wooded areas. Although it’s only minutes from D.C, it’s not uncommon for residents to spot wildlife in their backyards. Not many neighborhoods will give you such a secluded feel yet are still so close to the city.
With many outdoor activities available and great places to walk or jog, it’s easy to live a healthy and active lifestyle. However, it’s a bit far to walk to most businesses – living here will require a car.
