Named for Chain Bridge, which connects northern Arlington to DC's Pallisades neighborhood, Chain Bridge Forest is a lovely community with amply spacious homes. The vast majority of houses in the neighborhood were built in the 1960's and 1970's. Many are inhabited by former residents of nearby Arlington neighborhoods that either hoped to leave behind what they considered overbuilding or simply craved more space. Whether it's growing-room for the children of young families or meant for new hobbies of retirees, space is the one thing Chain Bridge Forest has plenty of.
Part of what makes Chain Bridge Forest unique and encourages happiness and neighborliness is that no one street was fully designed by the same architect or contractor, let alone the whole neighborhood. Rather than having been platted and built up prior to the arrival of its residents, the residents have clearly had a large say in what they wanted in a dwelling and therefore each house has a bit of personality. The area remains heavily wooded, so privacy remains intact. While fences make good neighbors, trees make even better ones.
