Lyon Village: An Eclectic Pot of Architecture

Even with all the development around the area, Lyon Village has managed to stay a quiet suburban neighbourhood, preserving its historic architecture. One of the reasons behind Lyon Villages growing popularity is the growth that has taken place around the neighbourhood, especially in Clarendon. That growth in the surrounding area grants Lyon Village residents access to the best of both worlds. Lyon Village residents can live a suburban lifestyle while not having to sacrifice the perks of living in a city area, with its proximity to Clarendon. Furthermore, the easy accessibility to Lee Highway makes commuting or driving to D.C neighbourhoods very convenient, which is great news for the real estate market in the area.

Lyon Village is home to a combination of historic and modern architecture. The area has seen a lot of growth due to its popularity, yet because of the community's efforts to preserve its origins, we are left with an eclectic collection of designs. The older houses are predominantly styles such as Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, Craftsman, Georgian Revival, and Spanish Mission Revival while newer projects have been larger designs such as apartments, condominiums, and townhouses.

The Lyon Village real estate market offers a broad range, both in terms of design and in terms of price. Smaller sized condos, offering 2 bedrooms & 2 baths, can be found at round six hundred thousand, while larger townhouses with 4 bedrooms & 3 baths are upwards of a million. Lyon Village is home to many beautifully designed houses, many of which were built in the early and mid 20th century, but recently renovated. The prices of these homes lie anywhere in between one and a half to two million; certainly not cheap figures, but with the growing popularity, these prices are not dropping anytime soon.
