Many families have fallen in love with Donaldson Run for it’s safe atmosphere, convenient location and desirable prices. The wooded, hilly neighborhood offers a quiet green oasis with a tranquil environment yet a surprisingly quick commute to the the District. It’s the ideal option for those who want to be outside of the city, but still within easy reach of it.
There is not a lot of new construction in the neighborhood, so the homes are mostly bungalow, rambler, colonial or Cape Cod styles built between 1940-1960 with lots of character and mature trees around the lots.
Although the neighborhood is mostly car oriented, with beautiful outdoor spaces such as the 67 acre Potomac Overlook Regional Park residents can live a healthy, active lifestyle. The Donaldson Run Civic Association prioritizes green space and the quality of the environment. The park features gardening demonstrations, activities for children and outdoor concerts, as well as “Camp Overlook” for children and teenagers.
There are several choices for excellent schools in the area – including Taylor Elementary School, Washington Lee High School, Arlington Traditional Elementary School and Nottingham Elementary School.
