The community of Country Club is located in North Arlington. It shares many of the same features as its neighbor to the north: glens and dales, lush herbage and mature trees. Country Club’s history also parallels that of the rest of the area. The Country Club community grew at the turn of the 19th century when the electric rail lines branched out of D.C. Despite the urban influences, the community maintained its rural roots.
Country Club grew in size in the years after World War II. Along with suburban development, Country Club also became home to Marymount University in 1950. Today, the spirit of the Country Club community is kept alive by active civic associations that are dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the neighborhoods.
Quality of Life:
Colonials, Victorians and frame houses comprise the real estate stock in the Country Club community. One can also find smaller bungalows and ramblers. The streets are wide and well shaded. Country Club includes the neighborhoods of Donaldson Run and Old Dominion. For those looking for more action, Donaldson Run Park is perfectly suited for explorers of all ages.
Like other suburban areas, the car is king. Biking is a popular mode of transportation to and from the Metro in Arlington’s central corridor. Military Road, Glebe Road and Lee Highway are easily accessible as is the G.W. Parkway.
