Lyon Village is a historic Arlington neighborhood in Arlington known for its tree-lined streets and its mix of eclectic old homes – many built in the 1920s and 1930s. The neighborhood is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The neighborhood bounded on the north by Lee Highway, Wilson Boulevard on the south, Veitch Street on the east, and Kirkwood Road on the west, and is considered to be part of Clarendon, one of Arlington ‘s fastest-growing restaurant and retail areas. Two playgrounds and a dog park are located within its borders.
Homes in Lyon Village encompass multiple architectural styles, including colonial revival, Queen Anne, Craftsman, Tudor revival, and Spanish Mission revival. Detached homes make up the bulk of the central part of the neighborhood, with apartment and condo buildings on the periphery. Many of the detached homes include freestanding or attached garages and sheds.
Lyon Village Park is located along Highland Street, and Lyon Village Community House, which is maintained by the Lyon Village Citizens’ Association, is nearby.
A shopping center located at the intersection of Langston Boulevard and Spout Run Parkway includes a Giant Foods, CVS, and Starbucks, as well as the locally-owned Italian Store, which offers imported Italian grocery items, yummy sandwiches and pizza, and a gelato and espresso bar.
The neighborhood offers multiple commuting options. Drivers can easily access Langston Boulevard and I-66, and the George Washington Parkway is only a few minutes’ drive. The Court House and Clarendon stops on Metro’s Orange and Silver Lines both serve the neighborhood, and the Martha Custis Trail is a popular corridor for cyclists.
