Prairie-style is becoming popular here, along with Craftsman-style. Pretty cool to finally see higher-end stuff exhibiting interesting design - way over due. I would not have installed glass garage doors, otherwise the house is very much to my liking (ranch would be better). The lot is pretty small for the house though - would be nice to see it on a larger one.

LOL. So, yea, the lot is worth a million or more? Or people in that market pay extra for better design? The exterior (size, quality) does not appear to exhibit a million dollar build, though certainly not a cookie cutter.

I also noticed the homes next door appear to be much lower in property class, or maybe that is just a bad shot.

youre right the homes next door are tear downs as is most all of the old homes in n. arlington, VA. it seems like every 3rd house is a new craftsman home because of the narrow lot sizes. but arlington lets you build virtually to your lot lines so big homes on small lots is the norm. and yes figure 660k for a 5k sq ft lot and up to 1.3m for a 12k sq ft lot. crazy!

Learn something new every day. Arlington County has the highest (average/median? - cant remember what it said) income in the country. Add that to the proximity to DC and viola, there you go, crazy land value.

So, I don't understand why a general map of DC is a square, which includes Arlington, but it seems Arlington is not part of DC and part of Virginia? What's up with the conflicting maps? Is Arlington like an honorary part of DC or something? Meant to happen but never did? Was and is now not?

I love DC. Not so much politicians, but the city, or at least the area around the mall, is really a neat thing.

Those styles are all over Dane County - several of the homes in the subdivision that adjoins mine are in that style and I will be surprised if at least 3-4 of the 13 lots that were approved in another adjoining plat aren't in those styles. I'm a fan, as well, though I live in a generic 1970s ranch style house.
