Custom Home on the Market Embraces Convenient and Quaint Neighborhood of Lyon Village

This elegant classic colonial on the market offers exquisite detailing, the latest modern amenities, and the opportunity to take in the spring season with its outdoor patio and kitchen

The Neighborhood

Walking down mature tree-lined sidewalks to the neighborhood parks, playgrounds and nearby shopping contributes to the small-town feel of Lyon Village, one of Arlington’s most sought after residential communities. Frank Lyon purchased this land, formerly Robert Cruit’s 19th century weekend and holiday estate and dairy farm, and established Lyon Village, a true community that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1923. Colonial, Tudor and Classical Revival styles are among the distinctive homes within the neighborhood, which embraces the custom brick home at 1839 N. Herndon Street as one of its own.

Deep Dig: Huge Tunnel Boring Machine Goes After Pollution

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA9) -- DC is dumping $2.6 billion into a hole in the ground.


Right now, a $30 million steel and concrete caterpillar is gnawing at the earth six days a week, 24 hours a day about 120 feet down. It's DC's biggest construction project since Metro and you probably never noticed.

The Lady Bird tunnel boring machine is building the first of more than 13 miles of tunnels, so the city can end the century-old practice of dumping raw sewage into our rivers during many rainstorms.

Lady Bird is about a quarter mile in from a ten story shaft at the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant and she's headed toward Nationals Park. Crews are about 70 feet below the Potomac off the Navy Research Lab.

Lady Bird stretches out about a football field and a half. She's like a giant assembly line chomping into the earth six feet at a time.
