Garden Apartment in Arlington VA Minutes from DC

Arlington, Virginia, United States
Rates from USD $2500 | Monthly

Apartment or Condo | Entire Home | House Sitting Negotiable
Available Dates:
From April 2, 2024 until July 1, 2026


We designed and built this home 5 years ago. The apartment (this listing) is on the lower level of the home. The space is a 1 Bedroom modern garden apartment in a new home on a quiet street, minutes from DC. Close to the airport. Walk to stores, restaurants, Metro, bus, bike share and trail. We live upstairs with our two kids & happy to assist with site-seeing, restaurants, and transport. Easy parking. We are happy to have a conversation with anyone interested to see what might be arranged. We are grateful to for the opportunity to post this listing but perhaps it is easiest to get a feel for the property with a look at this listing: Bound Home, how we sometimes refer to this property, is conceived as contemporary sculpture. A short video introducing the concept of Bound Home is included in the links on this listing. Before beginning the design of Bound Home we conceived 3 principles to guide the work: 1) Celebrate Life: Complexity and Simplicity; 2) Serve Inhabitants, Neighbors, and Community; and 3) Sustainability. We've used parts of the previous home (flooring, joists, baseboard) to build parts of the kitchen in the apartment and many features of the main home. Take good care of yourself and the folks you are close to. And be in touch! Matt
