Getting to Know Springfield Oaks-Fairfax County Virginia

Springfield Oaks If you live in Springfield Oaks in Fairfax County you are lucky to have found a neighborhood where the developer left multiple pockets of green space and built a community clustered around courtyards to keep cut through traffic to a minimum.  Situated on 18 acres of wooded and gently rolling terrain 17 miles south of Washington DC this townhouse development is in a prime location for homeowners who commute to DC or any of the nearby military bases.

Springfield Oaks Community

 

 

My clients Phil and Maria decided last year when his orders brought him to the area that Springfield Oaks was a great place to put down roots with their new son.  Phil had just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq and managed to arrive home just in time.  Their son was born just a few days later.  They were drawn to Springfield Oaks due to the great location, easy access to the metro, slug lines and shopping.  Important for those late night diaper runs!



Springfield Oaks Tot LotHaving owned a townhouse myself in Springfield Oaks I knew how well the association worked to keep the neighborhood up to date and they have just completed a brand new tot lot  which Phil and Maria look forward to using with their son.  The neighborhood is divided into two sections crossed by Alban Road.  Both the upper and lower sections of the neighborhood share services including twice a week trash pickup, community leaf cleaning and snow removal.

 

Springfield Oaks Tennis Courts

Every year the community sponsors events to bring the neighbors together including ice cream socials, Easter egg hunts and Halloween parties.  If you need a lesson on Oak tree species all you have to do is drive through the neighborhood and look at the street names including, Blue Oak, Chapman Oak and Pin Oak to realize how many types of Oak trees there are.

 

 

AcornOf course the only down side of living in a neighborhood full of Oak trees are the annual fall of acorns.  But if that is all you can find wrong with a nice neighborhood of 382 townhouses a few blocks from Lorton Station, less than 5 miles to the main gate of Fort Belvoir or where you can catch a Fairfax Connector bus at one of the entrances to the neighborhood then I think it is okay.

 

If you are moving to Northern Virginia and would like to learn more about the area, give me a call.  As a native of the area I can give you a tour not only a new place to call home but other areas of interest for you and your family.
