Claremont Property Values
The subdivision was cleverly and conveniently located, for Columbia Forest, Claremont's neighbor to the northwest, hosted the development of military-designed housing for young, married officers during the war, most of which was sold to returning veterans. It is one of the few planned communities in the DC area that is comprised exclusively of frame-houses.
During its original development phase from 1946 to 1954, the dominant styles of dwellings were an even split of Colonial Revival and Cape Cod houses. After that, thanks to a period of greater economic prosperity, ranch homes became increasingly popular.
Claremont was planned by Gerald A. Freed who upheld the mission of bringing affordable housing to Arlington, after the success of his father who was responsible for the Buckingham garden apartment complex. The Claremont neighborhood was developed in the mid-twentieth century in response to the need for housing for veterans returning from Europe and the Pacific.
