Falls Church Neighborhoods: Barcroft Mews

August 10, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Barcroft Mews is a community of approximately 50 brick townhouses built between 1989 and 1991, according to local tax records. Located just south of Columbia Pike, Barcroft Mews is convenient to major commuting routes, including Braddock Road and I-395. It’s also within a few miles of both the Van Dorn and East Falls Church metro stations.

The community sits adjacent to the historic Clark House. The house was built in 1902, and served as the family home of the Clark family, who ran a large dairy farm. Today, the house has been restored and is available to rent as a banquet facility. The house is also open for tours to the public, but you must call the facility to schedule a viewing.

With a walk score of 51, Barcroft Mews is considered “somewhat walkable.” The community is next to Barcroft Plaza, which features Harris Teeter, Starbucks, and Subway. Four restaurants are also within a quarter mile of residents’ front doors, including local favorite Han Sung Oak. For outdoor enthusiasts, three parks are nearby, including Holmes Run Stream Valley Park.

Currently, just one home is actively listed for sale in Barcroft Mews, according to MRIS, our local MLS. It’s an end unit with three bedrooms, two full baths, and two half baths with 1,968 square feet of living space, and is listed for $539,000.

One house is currently under contract in the neighborhood. It’s a three-bed, 3.5-bath interior unit with 1,798 square feet of living space listed for $509,995. Neither the house that’s under contract nor the house that’s actively listed for sale is a short sale or foreclosure.

The neighborhood is popular, and the last time a house sold in Barcroft Mews was in May of 2010. It was an end unit with three beds, two full baths, and two half baths. It sat on the market for just 11 days and sold for $517,000.
