Bluemont is a community in Arlington, VA. Situated only seven miles from Washington D.C. and 1.4 miles from the Ballston Metro Station, the community is primarily made up of single-family homes, though townhomes and condos can also be found in this area. This friendly community is known for hosting events throughout the year designed to bring residents together.
Established in 1890, Bluemont can be further broken down into subdivisions, including Lacey Forest, Brockwood, Brandon Village and Bon Air. The community features an array of architectural styles, including Cape Code, Craftsman, Colonial and Farmhouse.

Yard sizes also vary significantly, though they all are graced by tall, mature trees that provide lots of shade. Most of the homes were built between the 1920s and 1940s. Despite extensive renovations and updates over the years, many of them still retain some of their original charm.
Modern kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, fixtures and appliances are common in homes throughout Bluemont. Some of the homes offer brick fireplaces, built-in shelving, oversized windows that allow for great views of the outdoors, and skylights.
