Side by Side Duplex Unit #1 Happinest: Fully Furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bath Tudor mansion with a sunroom, family room with wet bar and several terraces and decks. Furnished ONLY. Lower Level Laundry and party room is SHARED with other side of duplex.
Welcome to Happinest Duplex, a meticulously restored 1921 Tudor originally built as a weekend retreat by famed DC Judge Ballard and Fanny Foy. Nestled high above Chain Bridge and the Potomac Heritage Trail, this historic home offers a blend of bygone charm and modern convenience, minutes from DC, Arlington, and McLean.
Renovated with attention to detail, the home features Prohibition-era hidden passageways, a wine cellar, original millwork from Georgian Pecan trees, and a sunken zen garden with a fountain. The property, once the only home on the hillside, is now accessed through a modern security gate leading to a brick home surrounded by terraces, decks, and gardens.
The Happinest Duplex section boasts three floors centered on the Great Hall, perfect for entertaining. The Pecan wood, restored with skylights for a modern touch, leads to a dining room, main kitchen, sunroom, and terrace. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a renovated hall bathroom, overlooking the Great Hall. Below, a family room, wet bar, garage, laundry room, and remodeled bathroom offer additional living space.
The grounds, updated in 2022, feature new plantings, artwork, a restored fountain, and lighting. With separate AC and heating systems, the property is ready for another century of adventure. Its unique layout allows for customization, offering flexibility for your needs.
Close to the amenities of NoVa and DC yet tucked away from chaos, Happinest is a retreat in the woods ready for you to make it home and become a part of Arlington's history.
