While plenty of suburban residents long for an urban lifestyle, new homes rarely become available within the District's borders.
The adjoining neighborhoods of Kent and Palisades just off MacArthur Boulevard are home to some of Northwest Washington's most distinctive homes, many with contemporary flair. Towering trees, flowering shrubs and perennial flowers surround many of these homes, giving the community a parklike setting in the midst of the city.
A little more than a week ago, when water and air temperatures were unusually warm, there were fears that, like the largemouth bass, the striped bass of the Chesapeake Bay would arrive sooner than normal and begin their spawning run.
Chesterbrook Woods, off Glebe Road in McLean, offers an ideal lifestyle for those who appreciate nature as much as they enjoy proximity to the District. As the name implies, tall trees provide a four-season spectacle for residents, particularly those lucky enough to own a home that backs to open woods.
One of the most-sought-after suburban areas in Northern Virginia is the cluster of streets in Arlington around Old Glebe Road and Military Road near Chain Bridge. Winding streets lined with towering trees, cul-de-sacs that offer privacy, and streams and parks within easy walking distance surround the eclectic mix of homes in this community.
While some homes offer an equally perfect view from every angle, others have hidden amenities that are visible only to the residents. The home at 3738 N. 30th Place in Arlington, while presenting an attractive brick front with landscaped gardens, becomes a bucolic paradise when viewed from the rear.
After two consecutive weeks of wind and rain that all but ruined the fishing for those who prefer to go after smallmouth bass and walleyes in the mountain rivers, the muddy waters have cleared and the fishing can resume. For example, the upper Potomac and Rappahannock rivers now are fishable and if we receive nothing more than a passing shower, let the casting begin.
Who could have guessed that additional rainstorms and wind would alter some parts of last week's fishing report, so for this week's outlook we'll stay on the side of caution.
The Washington area's rivers are slowly returning to fishable conditions, especially the tidal portions of the Potomac River where, in Charles and Prince William counties particularly, the largemouth bass, blue catfish and snakeheads are holding court.
What makes a home perfect isn't the same for everyone, but many homebuyers are looking for comfort above all. Many want a home with a room for every activity, four seasons of lovely views and space for relaxing indoors and outdoors, alone or with friends and family.
Northwest Washington's Palisades neighborhood offers a completely different city living experience than residing in the heart of Dupont Circle, Penn Quarter or Columbia Heights. In the Palisades, neighbors enjoy a small-town ambience, with an eclectic mix of homes; a park with a playground and tennis courts; a library; and a recreation center with a basketball court, arts and crafts rooms and plenty of classes and activities for all ages.
