The Belvedere – The Belvedere has one of Arlington’s best locations in terms of both access and views. As with many condominium buildings in Arlington, there is substantial difference in views given slight changes in height or location within the building. Having said this, a large percentage of homes have exceptional views of the Iwo Jima Memorial, Washington Monument, and The Capitol.
The Belvedere has undergone a $4,000,000 face lift, which makes the building an even more attractive place for those seeking quality and convenience within the urban life style. The amenities are outstanding, with an outdoor pool, fitness center, tennis courts, library, 24-hour concierge and more. It is only three blocks from the Rosslyn Metro Station.
The Belvedere has several penthouse units which line up beautifully with a site line of Washington, D.C. From these, you get a spectacular view (even moreso at night) of Iwo Jima, the Washington Monument, and The Capitol, all lined up as if in formation.
This building has much to offer and sometimes flies below the radar screen when one discusses the quality high-rise market in Arlington. Generally, homes sell quickly here, for reasons stated above, and because listings prices have hit the market at very attractive levels, vis-a-vis the competition.
The Belvedere is a good value in general. On those occasions where one of their upper-level penthouses, with dramatic views, comes available, they are worth seeing as a lower-priced way to capture the benefits of this life style. If you have interest in The Belvedere or want to compare it to other alternatives, please feel free to call or email me.
If you are seeking a well-appointed condominium in a very convenient neighborhood, The Belvedere may be for you. For further discussion on The Belvedere or its peers, please call or email me.
