Welcome to Fairlington

Fairlington in Arlington VA Just a stoplight away from the Pentagon and tucked in the trees off of I-395, sit the seven neighborhoods that make up the community of Fairlington.  The connection between military families stationed at the Pentagon, Fort Meyer or other Military District of Washington facilities remains as strong today as it did in the 1940’s when Fairlington was first built.

Originally Fairlington was constructed as a garden apartment complex to house defense workers and their families during World War II.  The community remained popular as a rental complex for almost 30 years and then in the early 1970's the property was converted to condos.   In 1998 the areas of North and South Fairlington were added to the Virginia Landmarks Register and in 1999 they were added to the Federal registry of National Historic Places.

The rolling hills, tree lined streets and the variety of housing styles has made Fairlington a popular place for both first time home buyers and long time residents.  The community has multiple pools and tennis courts and is a great walking community.  Owners are actively involved in maintaining the charming feel of the community.   Fairlington addresses cross county and city boundaries of Arlington and Alexandria.   

With Old Town Alexandria less than 5 miles away and the new revitalized Village of Shirlington with its multiple restaurants, shops and Harris Teeter Grocery Store close by it is easy to see why after 60 years this community continues to thrive.
