Glencarlyn Property Values

Glencarlyn is a veritable hodgepodge of housing styles, tied together primarily by Glencarlyn's long-standing value of neighborliness. Two- and three-story painted wooden homes from the late 19th and early 20th century dominate the are the most common, but a number of brick bungalows cropped up shortly after World War II. A common observation is the neighborhood's village vibe within a pastoral landscape. The residential area is surrounded by trees, fields, and streams; and very few streets have curbs, gutters, or even sidewalks.

Glencarlyn Origins

Glencarlyn is a neighborhood of fascinating and rich history. Originally called Carlin Springs, it was conceived in 1887 and a year later the Carlin Springs Cooperative Association was formed. What is now the Glencarlyn Citizens' Association is said to be one of the oldest surviving civic associations in the United States.

Inhabited by Native Americans for many millennia, John Ball, a yeoman farmer who received a land grant from Lord Fairfax to settle 166 acres was the area's first English settler. His land was eventually sold to William Carlin, George Washington's tailor, whose family lived prominently on the land for over a century and from whom, the neighborhood's name was derived. In 1887, the land was purchased by Gen. Samuel S. Burdett and his partner William W. Curtis whose vision of a fully cooperative community has had great staying power and governs Glencarlyn to this day.
