Guide to Homes for Sale in Lacey Forest

Lacey Forest Home for Sale in Arlington, VA
Single Family Home for sale in Lacey Forest Neighborhood.

Often referred to as an extension of Bluemont, Lacey Forest is a smaller Arlington single-family neighborhood just north of I-66. Tree-lined streets and a variety of older original homes as well as multi-million-dollar new construction characterize the neighborhood.

Lacey Forest on the Map

Lacey Forest is located in between the Ballston and East Falls Church Metro stops and borders Bluemont, Westover Village, Tara-Leeway Heights, and Waycroft. Starting at the intersection of I-66 and N George Mason Drive, the neighborhood continues west along I-66, north on N Jefferson Street, east along Washington Boulevard, and south down George Mason Drive.

Homes for Sale in Lacey Forest

The housing stock in Lacey Forest is made up exclusively of single-family homes. The neighborhood was originally developed in the late 1930s to the mid 1940s, and even though many of the homes are originals, there are homes that have been recently constructed with all of the bells and whistles that high-end homebuyers seek. Generally, most of the homes are Colonials, but there are also Craftsman homes, split levels, Cape Cods and ramblers. The homes that were originals to the neighborhood often have less square footage than new construction, but many of the homes have been renovated with desirable interior finishes.

Things to Do in Lacey Forest

Entertainment abounds in the nearby neighborhood of Ballston, which is a short drive from Lacey Forest. The neighborhood is bustling with life and something new seems to be appearing almost monthly. Some of the best eateries close by include Pupatella and Taylor Gourmet. The Ballston Common Mall is conveniently located near Lacey Forest, and contains myriad shopping and dining options. To the west of Lacey Forest is Westover Village. Westover Market is a grocer and also contains a butcher shop and a popular beer garden. On summer and fall weekend nights, the Westover Market beer garden has live music, making it an awesome place to relax. Westover also has a couple of more popular dining spots, including Lost Dog Café and Lebanese Taverna.

Enjoying the Great Outdoors in Lacey Forest

Like much of Arlington, great parks and fun outdoor activities surround Lacey Forest. Lacey Woods Park is the neighborhood’s main park. It has 14 acres of space, a lighted basketball court, picnic shelter, a playground, a multi-use field and nature trails. Several other Arlington parks are located in neighboring areas, including Westover Park, Woodlawn Park, and Fields Park. For avid runners, walkers, and bikers, there are a few access points to the Custis Trail along the southern end of the neighborhood.

Traveling Around Lacey Forest

Although the neighborhood is situated in between the Ballston and Falls Church Metro stations, transport via car is the go-to way to get from point A to point B in this single-family home neighborhood. Most homes have garages, driveways, or both, so car storage is not a problem like in the urban villages of Arlington. The neighborhood is also situated around major access points, including I-66, N George Mason Drive and Washington Boulevard. These major Arlington roads allow commuters to get to Washington, DC, and further out west in Virginia.

Making Your Home in Lacey Forest

Although Lacey Forest often gets grouped in with the much larger neighborhood of Bluemont, it provides a nice small neighborhood atmosphere that residents love. With a major park, access to well-traveled roads, and its proximity to dining and entertainment, Lacy Forest has a ton to offer its residents.
