Great place to live. Great amenities. Every unit has washer and dryer. The walls in between each unit including the floor and ceilings are concrete so you do hear anyone. The neighbors are on the young side and very nice. Staff… Full Review ▶

I bought my condo two years ago and have grown to absolutely love the place. If you need to be in the middle of action (restaurants, shops, other downtown amenities), this place is probably not for you. Otherwise, the location is… Full Review ▶

I have rented here for the past year and have come to hate this place for the following reasons. 1) Taxis WILL NOT come to this building on weekends. I have no explanation for this, but attempting to get a cab… Full Review ▶
In the six months to a year that my girlfriend has rented a place here, I have come to hate this place. This place seems to be a poorly maintained dump. Aside from its deteriorating physical appearance, the power has gone… Full Review ▶
This place is great. The HOA seems to be good average folks, not those guys who get into HOA and then rule w/ iron fist and see it as a source of income or influence, give their friends consulting fees, etc.… Full Review ▶
We've lived in the Brittany for 2 years and it has been a good experience so far. The Four Mile Run trail could not be more convenient. The common areas are in great shape and are very functional. Our neighbors are… Full Review ▶
I've been living in the Brittany Condominium for more than 2 years and NEVER experienced any leak, mold or structural problems. I have several friends and aquaintances that live here and did not have those problems at all. The building was… Full Review ▶
My family went to see,"The Orleans" apt. today. I called last night and asked specifically ,What is the view like? Will the view be blocked in the future by other condos? The response given, The view is of Shirlington Village. ..… Full Review ▶
I've lived at the newly renovated Brittany Condominium for 1.5 years now and lot it! We have a unit that faces the East, so we get plenty of natural light during the day, and we like the view of the bike… Full Review ▶
I've lived at the Brittany Condominiums for 1 year and a half now and have had a very positive experience. I enjoy having breakfast and/or dinner on the balcony and going out for walks along the trails nearby. This is a… Full Review ▶
Note that all the reviews below refer to the previous Brittany rentals (reviews from 2005 and before). The Brittany now is a great Condo building entirely renovated and with good management and security 24 hours a day. The reviews below should… Full Review ▶
Well by now, July 2005, nearly all the renters in the Brittany on South 4 mile run drive, Arlington VA have moved out. They found out the major problems in structure of the building were not being repaired, the pool, the… Full Review ▶
I have been living at The Brittany for almost two years now and am happy to say that when my lease is up I'm out of there. They have been doing renovations to various apartments and have bought exterior "Fluff" items… Full Review ▶
I lived in this complex for 1 year. Almost every week we have no water. Most of the time, the office didn't tell us when they cut the service. After 1 year, I was happy that I left this building. But,… Full Review ▶
I recently moved into the one of the newly renovated apartments at the Brittany. While I can agree with one of the past complaints it is quite clear that the management company has made many steps to improve the property. First… Full Review ▶
The building itself is reasonably well-kept, but the management is a shambles. My apartment was on more than one occasion entered during my absence for repairs without notice. (and may I add, for repairs not requested by me - they were… Full Review ▶
I lived in the Brittany for a hellish 6 months. I've since moved out by the even more hellish past 6 months have been spent trying to recover my security deposit that the management company owes me. Threats of filings by… Full Review ▶
The staff is friendly, the apartments thenselves I found to be pretty nice, especially if you are on the upper floors with a nice view. It´s also convenient to DC, Shirlington, parks and ballfields and shopping.
BUT...my friend´s car was… Full Review ▶
This complex looks like it might have been a really high priced, luxury apartment building back in the 1970´s. Since then, it has gradually run down and at this point in time has looks and feels about worn out. I do… Full Review ▶
Admittingly, must of the previous complaints are true. My lease ends in September. I think there are just a lot of people who reside here who A.) expect way to much out of life or B.) are the kind of people… Full Review ▶
I have posted comments a long time ago, but after reading the previous two postings, I feel I need to post again.
It would appear that the management wrote the previous posting. There is a general feeling living here that you… Full Review ▶
The apartments were fine. We rented a one bedroom with a den and used the den as an extra bedroom. We had no problem with the apartment but we did have issues with water pressure being weak, water being more cold… Full Review ▶
The building management has failed to supply the parking space and storage unit that are supposed to be included in the apartment package. They claim to have lost their records of who has which space, but have done NOTHING over the… Full Review ▶
The apartments themselves are fine - clean, good size. The main problems are with the management and the building layout. Guest/2nd car parking is only behind the building, with no convenient doors, so you half to either walk through the dumpster… Full Review ▶
I do agree with many comments that other tenants have made. However, I feel it necessary to state that this is not a slum. It is an older building with maintenance problems and some questionable tenants, but c´mon, it´s no Southeast… Full Review ▶
After living here for almost two years, I want to repeat what everybody has said in these reviews. It is not worth the price to live here. This place is going downhill, with the most recent problem being hot water. Over… Full Review ▶
The Kitchens were horrible. Hadn´t been redone since the 70´s. I actually had three different colors of appliances in my kitchen. Cheap, Very Cheap Carpet. Only one phone jack worked. The bathroom vanities were falling apart. And the hot water. Ha… Full Review ▶
We moved here in 2002 and we can´t wait to move out for the following reasons:
1)Break-ins in parking garage
2)Incredible amount of water problems
3)No ventilation system to speak of -- don´t ask about the neighbor´s odors -- they… Full Review ▶
There have been so many problems since we have moved in here that I will just touch on a few of the latest.
Over the past month, the hot water has not worked on 4 seperate occasions when I was trying… Full Review ▶
My wife and I moved into the Brittany in 1997. At the time the management was Dreyfuss (excuse the spelling if I?m incorrect). We acquired a spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath end unit.
We are acquainted with one or two of… Full Review ▶
This is by far the worst apartment complex I have ever lived in..or could imagine living in.
The water in the shower takes what seems like years to get hot...that´s assuming that they haven´t shut it off...
I live on the… Full Review ▶
Everything written about this place is, unfortunately, true... I happen to live on the eleventh floor and don´t get the wafts of trash smell one reviewer spoke about, but the water problem is horrendous. If you have a family, please, please,… Full Review ▶
I have read the previous reviews and have to shake my head at the one reply to "My nightmare" who says the post is so unbelievable in its claims. Well, it?s not. The pipes in this building are so bad that… Full Review ▶
The Brittany is a nightmare from the moment you park the car (maybe! as there is not enough resident parking) to getting in the elevators (if they are working which 90 % of the time they are not - 20 minute… Full Review ▶
I lived there for 2.5 years. I moved in at 850/month in 2000, when I moved, my rent was 1100. In that time, the place got scarier, louder, dirtier, and my car had $2K in scratches done to it. The managment… Full Review ▶
I have lived here for 4 years, and am quite looking forward to leaving. The worst aspects of this building:
-The apartments are shoddily constructed. I have plaster falling off the ceiling, water leaks in the walls from upper floors, and… Full Review ▶
First of all, I have never lived at the Brittany, but the previous post was so ridiculous in its complaints, that I had to say something.
Number one, if there was an emergency, you shouldn´t be concerned about the elevators,… Full Review ▶
Pros: Spacious apts., cheaper rent as compared to other apt´s.
Cons: Now that´s a long list...
1. Parking is such a major issue if U dont have a spot. Every apt. gets one spot(even 2 BR apt´s) Having the second… Full Review ▶
This place is not worth the money you pay. We had a bug problem when we moved in and the staff blamed me for the problem. I brought it with me. When I moved in there were bugs and roaches everywhere… Full Review ▶
WATER REPAIRS(require the entire building to be shut off) made usually durring the day and M-F. Usually with a days notice and will be scheduled at 10am until finished (4pm) unless there is an emergency and you are just out of… Full Review ▶
