The a|e group specializes in the Westover neighborhood of Arlington, VA. This area is perfect for the commuter who still wants to maintain a small town, cozy urban village feeling. It is filled with small, independent shops and restaurants, a post office, and the public library. Commuterpage.com says “Easily reached via bus, bike, Metro, or on foot, Westover combines hip amenities with architectural charm. The closest Metro station is East Falls Church Metro, located at Washington Boulevard and Sycamore Street. Washington Boulevard, Westover's main street, truly is pedestrian friendly; there are benches and trees for shade, small businesses with unique and intriguing signs, and places to stop and talk or people-watch.”


Did you know that on May 2, 2006, Westover was officially designated into the National Register of Historic Places? According to application, the Westover Historic District is bounded by McKinley Road, Washington Boulevard, 16th Street North, North Jefferson Street, 11th Street North, and North Fairfax Drive. The Westover Historic District is a residential neighborhood of 418 primary resources on 143 acres. The neighborhood was constructed in five phases: Westover Apartments (1939), Westover Hills (1940-1941), Keene’s Addition to Westover (1941), Westover Park (1942, 1943, 1947, 1948), and Mason’s Addition to Westover (1955-1957). The residential streets of Westover are lined with Colonial Revival-style single-family dwellings, twin houses, duplexes, and multi-family garden apartments. The buildings are sited away from the streets to provide for ample yards and many of the houses have paved driveways to provide for off-street parking. Rolling hills and clusters of woodland define the neighborhood, which is interspersed with winding streets and cul-de-sacs. The commercial district, centered along Washington Boulevard and Patrick Henry Drive, contains a shopping center, the Claude A. Swanson Junior High School, and the Westover Baptist Church. Swanson Park, located along the southwest border of the school site, connects the school grounds and the neighborhood with pedestrian paths.
