Guide to Cherrydale

Cherrydale Home in Arlington, VA.
Cherrydale Neighborhood Church in Arlington

The neighborhood of Cherrydale, a North Arlington community filled with rich history dating back to the pre-Civil War era, has transformed into a modern community with its own character and charm. This lush tree-lined neighborhood is filled with single-family homes, all just a couple of minutes from Washington DC, plus the urban development of Virginia Square/Ballston.

Close to Ballston and Clarendon

The boundaries of Cherrydale can be a bit confusing, with the community taking shape of an irregular polygon. Cherrydale begins at the intersection of Lee Highway and I-66, right after the end of Clarendon’s end on Kirkwood road. The neighborhood then continues west along Lee Highway, north up N Pollard Street then N Vacation Lane, west along Lorcom Lane, south on Military Road, west along 23rd Street until Stratford Park meets with Lee Highway again. Then, the neighborhood extends south on N Taylor Street, then south on N Utah Street, and east back on I-66 until the starting point at Lee Highway.

Colonials and Craftsmans

Housing in Cherrydale consists almost exclusively of single-family homes, however, there are a couple of townhome communities and condominiums on the outer edge the boundaries of the neighborhood. The majority of the single-family homes tend to be colonial and craftsman style houses. There are homes in the area that go against the grain, with bungalows, farmhouses, and cape cods also sprinkled throughout the tree-lined streets of the neighborhood.

The Bromptons at Cherrydale are a group of townhomes along Lee Highway in between N Pollard Street and N Oakland Street. This community is characterized by their arts and crafts inspired exteriors. Lauderdale Townhomes is an enclave of just under 30 homes with brick exteriors. The sole condo community in Cherrydale is Stoneridge Knoll. This high-rise community has 180 panoramic views, a gym, a clubroom, and parking.

Car-Centric Community

Although Cherrydale is lucky to have close proximity to both Clarendon and Ballston, it’s not close enough that the “car-free” diet is popular amongst residents. Having a car in the neighborhood is super convenient, with most of the homes including garage parking, plus most areas have plenty of street parking for guests. Depending on where the starting point is, the drive into Ballston-Virginia Square can be anywhere from 3-6 minutes. Getting into Clarendon is just a bit further, and can take up to 8-9 minutes. Besides easy access into the popular commercial areas of Arlington, Cherrydale is also in a great spot for commuters, located right along I-66, which connects the neighborhood into Washington DC and out west to areas like Tyson’s Corner, Dulles, Reston, Herndon, and lots of other popular Northern VA destinations. Another major highway artery that runs through Cherrydale is Lee Highway, which also leads into Washington DC and out west past Arlington.

Minutes away from Clarendon and Ballston

Clarendon and Ballston are the main hubs of entertainment and dining close to Cherrydale. Ballston is the closest of the two, and is filled with nightlife, restaurants, and an up and coming entertainment scene. Some of the popular spots to grab a drink with friends include A-Town and World of Beer. Restaurants like Rustico, Willow, and the no-frills Ravi Kabob. Clarendon also entices residents with great restaurants like Cava Mezze, Screwtop, and Green Pig Bistro. The nightlife scene in Clarendon is also undeniable, with longtime favorites like Whitlow’s on Wilson, Clarendon Grill, and Mister Days. There are also some good eateries, that are more on the takeout side of dining, right on Lee Highway, like the Italian Store, Crisp & Juicy, Arrowine, and Tarbouch.

Plenty of Parks and Recreation

One of the main sources for Cherrydale residents is the Custis Trail, which runs along I-66. This trail is perfect for bikers, joggers, and runners, and is a connecting trail from the W&OD trail into Washington DC and the Mount Vernon Trail. In addition to one of Arlington’s best trails, Cherrydale also has some great parks. Stratford Park is a 5-acre park on the northwest end of the neighborhood and has picnic stables, a baseball field, two lighted tennis courts, grass field, and a basketball court. Oak Grove Park has picnic tables, a gazebo, a playground, and a rectangular field. For those who aren’t so into outdoor recreation, Cherrydale is close to the Arlington YMCA, Sport & Heath, and Gold’s Gym.
