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.

2011 White House shooter opposes terrorism enhancement in case


WASHINGTON (AP) - Lawyers for an Idaho man who has pleaded guilty to firing an assault rifle at the White House in 2011 don't want a "terrorism enhancement" to apply to his case.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez' lawyers wrote in court filings Monday that the application of a "terrorism enhancement" is unconstitutional, though he accepted it as part of his guilty plea in September. An enhancement increases the penalty for a charge in terrorism cases

Lawyers also asked that Ortega-Hernandez be allowed to speak with the judge privately.

Federal sentencing guidelines recommend Ortega-Hernandez spend 24 to 27 ½ years behind bars. But his lawyers compared his case to that of Joseph Reel, recently sentenced to nearly three years for rigging his Jeep to crash into a White House Secret Service guard booth.

Ortega-Hernandez is scheduled to be sentenced March 19.
