Simply Stunning Cape Cod | Lyon Village

The mature tree-lined sidewalks to the neighborhood parks, playgrounds and nearby shopping contribute to the quaintness of Lyon Village; one of Arlington’s and metro DC’s most sought after residential communities. Frank Lyon purchased this land, formerly Robert Cruit’s 19th century weekend and holiday estate and dairy farm, and established Lyon Village, a true community that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1923. Colonial, Tudor, Cape Cod and Classical Revival styles are among the distinctive homes within this neighborhood. This simply stunning Cape Cod home fits perfectly into this environment.

This home’s lovely addition, along with the extensive full house renovation by Mickey Simpson in 2010, allows this beautiful Cape Cod to be the best of the best in this historic community. Starting with the gracious entry foyer and open floor plan on three levels, the approximately 3000-square-foot home is upgraded and customized both inside and out. From the audio/video system, 500 bottle wine cellar, custom built-ins, hand-selected tiles and extensive exterior hardscape, this residence offers top-of-the-line finishes around every turn.

The gourmet kitchen is outfitted with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances and is adjacent to an open, light-filled main level family room. This layout creates a first floor flow suited to both intimate affairs and large-scale dinner parties. A formal living room and dining room along with a full bath, ample closet and storage space complete the main level of this home.

With three bedrooms and two full baths on the upper level, there is ample space and privacy for everyone to relax and feel at home. The master suite is both inviting and spacious and has ample closet space and lovely hardwood floors, bathed in natural light. The master bathroom is decked out with a custom vanity with double sinks and granite countertops. The bathroom also has a large shower with double shower head which leads to a private balcony. Its uniqueness and charm provide a private space to relax and recharge.

This floor is complete with the additional two bedrooms, full bath with a shower tub combination and laundry room.

The fully-finished lower level welcomes you with an open and spacious floor plan with natural light. The custom built-ins and flat screen TV provide a welcome retreat to relax with family and friends. If one is in the mood for some libations, you don’t’ need to walk too far as a custom 500 bottle wine cellar is mere steps away. The homes 4th bedroom and fourth full bathroom is also located on this level and can serve as an au pair or additional guest suite.

Regularly named one of the great Washington, DC neighborhoods by The Washington Post and Washingtonian and Arlington magazines, Lyon Village continues to charm homeowners with its small town feel despite being one of the most close-in neighborhoods in the city. All residents belong to the Lyon Village Citizens Association, which, in addition to owning a rentable community house used for meetings and parties, brings neighbors together with regular holiday parties, kids’ events, and community gatherings. Adjacent to the community house is a state-of-the-art playground with a summer water feature along with lighted tennis and basketball courts, all just three blocks from this home’s front door. This close-knit community affords easy access to Interstate 66 and Spout Run; however, it is even better known for its impressive walkability score and easy walking distance to the Clarendon Metro and the dozens of neighborhood shops and restaurants, including Whole Foods, Starbucks, the Apple store, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn and many more.

For those who want proximity to all that Washington and Clarendon have to offer without sacrificing the luxury and amenities of a large open custom-built house, this home truly provides the opportunity to have it all.
