Property Description

Affordable gem in a superior location. Familiar with Virginia Square? If not... check it out. Ideally positioned between night-life-loving Clarendon and bustling Ballston, this leafy, quieter spot is sometimes referred to as "Clarendon for grown-ups". Home to Arlington's main library, George Mason Law School, medical/dental facilities, parks, Giant grocery, banks, cleaners, etc. User-friendly Va. Sq. Metro station (Orange/Silver lines) a two minute stroll away. Dazzling superior 2016 quality-crafted "open" kitchen. Builders no longer build room sizes that rival those of single family homes and 20 Ft. + Balconies. Quality-constructed and well-maintained. Sparkling pool, fitness room, community room, grilling patio and free extra storage. Stylish and handsome with some new flooring and lush/tranquil view. Living Rm. bookcase (not built-in) can easily be positioned where you want it or Seller will remove. Prime walk-ability makes it easy to live vehicle-free. Want your vehicle close at hand? Secure garage Parking Space P1-17c is in place for you to lease at $175.00 per month. Want another? Easy. Abundant parking available at Atlantic Parking Garage; entrance on N. 9th St. across from Tower Villas' Lobby entrance plus abundance of more neighborhood commercial garages close-by. Pampering 24 Hour front desk personnel receive packages , admit guests and assist residents. Dedicated in-house porters keep building spick-and-span and on-site engineers can perform in-unit repairs at modest cost. Know how to evaluate condo. fees? They are calculated based on square footage owned. This one is 73 cents per sq. ft. and ALL utilities are included including cost-effective bulk contract cable t.v. and high-speed internet. Absolutely no extra checks to write. Breakdown: $893.00 + $72.00 for bulk cable t.v./ internet. Formula: Divide monthly condo. fee by square footage = condo. fee per sq. ft. Majority of condos. have residents pay utilities, so factor that in. No Special Assessment ever at solid/stable Tower Villas. Pet Friendly; 2 small(30 lbs. max.) pets o.k.; appealing park on corner. VA and FHA financing available. So many good reasons there is little turn-over at Tower Villas. Mortgage rates are climbing and rental rates are up as well. Excellent time to buy. Just out from Dr. Larry Yun, Chief Economist for National Assoc. of Realtors. “Rising rents will continue to place upward pressures on inflation. Real estate is a great hedge against inflation.” Yun predicted that mortgage rates will see an increase of 3.7% in the coming months, a rise he attributes to persistent high inflation. Home prices rose by 12% on average in 2020 and 2021, while inflation rose 3%. Still plan to wait?
