Mrs. Arlington Discovers a Fascinating House is on the Market

I recently discovered that a house that has fascinated me for years is on the market! This home, 6430 27th St North, just down the street from the East Falls Church metro, stands out from the other homes on Sycamore Street due to its massive size. A recent exterior makeover only left me more curious about what is inside. Thanks to an updated Zillow listing, and the listing agent’s YouTube video, now we can all get a glimpse!

Things that stand out to Mrs. Arlington about this home:

  • At 4 stories, 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and a whopping 9,649 sq ft — this place is truly massive!
  • The beautiful room with a large bar area rivals many restaurants.
  • There is a BALLROOM! Seriously, you could hold dance classes here. Or host a disco — it’s pre-wired with a light and sound system.
  • The $1,885,000 asking price came down $100,000 in February.

Check out all 42 of the pictures on Zillow, and if you buy it, please invite me over to christen the dance floor!

Knights of Columbus
5115 Little Falls Road

This egg hunt has separate areas for different age groups, but is still the “fastest 5 minutes at Edward Douglass White.”

Certain eggs have a prize ticket inside and the Easter Bunny will pop by for a visit and photos with the kids. Enjoy an afternoon on the beautiful grounds. There is no charge to participate. This event is a great choice for a toddler’s first egg hunt.

Saturday, March 31 at 10:00 am

Many neighborhoods host egg hunts as well. Madison Manor’s will be held at Madison Manor Park, 6225 12th Rd N. The Madison Manor Civic Association appreciates donations to help keep this event going, so bring a few dollar bills to put in when the jar is passed around. Help your neighbors spread the joy: share your neighborhood’s hunt details in the comments.

Looking for decorations to welcome Spring at home? Check out Two the Moon, located downstairs in the Williamsburg Shopping Center, 6501 N 29th Street. The locally-owned gift shop has many beautiful Easter and Spring decorations, as well as some cute Easter basket stuffers (bunny jewelry!) with the children’s items.
