Cherrydale is located in the heart of North Arlington, bordered generally on the east and south by I-66, on the north by Lorcom Lane and Old Dominion Drive, and on the west by North Utah Street and the H.B. Woodlawn School property. Although there are a few multi-family houses, four townhouse developments, one senior apartment building, and two large condo/apartment buildings, the community contains primarily single-family homes. Some of the home styles include bungalow, colonial, and – of course – new construction. Even on smaller lots zoned R-6 it still makes sense for builders to build here because of the neighborhoods close proximity to Clarendon and DC.
Cherrydale is a neighborhood of predominantly small, neatly kept, older single family homes. With its quiet streets and huge old trees, many parts of the area still retain a small town feeling, despite the fact that it is only three and one half miles from Washington, D.C. The hometown feeling, the pride residents have in the community and its heritage, and the recent widespread efforts to rehabilitate and save many of our fine old homes, indicate a renewed interest in the community and its history.
There is a planned first annual event called http://discovercherrydale.info/about/ scheduled for May 31, 2014, featuring lots of local talent.
