Fort Belvoir and Kingstowne-Where the Good Neighbor Policy Works

Putting out The Welcome Mat We don’t always get to decide who are neighbors are going to be. We take our chances when we see new houses going up around us. Deciding to put out the welcome mat often helps pull your new neighbors in and makes them feel welcome. And this is the case with Fort Belvoir and Kingstowne.

When the earth movers first arrived on a large expansive of dirt between Van Dorn and Beulah roads everyone waited with anticipation to see how the newest neighborhood would grow. And grow it has. Into a community divided into three villages made up of commercial and residential space including 5300 hundred residences. With two main streets that lead to the gates at Fort Belvoir the connection between the two communities has grown. Many owners in Kingstowne also work at Fort Belvoir either as active duty Army assigned to the post or as civilians supporting the Army’s mission.

Happy Family in Kingstowne Virginia

 

For military families who decide to live in Kingstowne they can take advantage a variety of recreation options including 18 tot lots, three multi-purpose courts, almost 22 miles of hiking and biking paths, and community centers which offer swimming pools and a fitness center. There is a wide selection of eating options in the neighborhood including Bone Fish Grill, The Noodle Company, Panera Bread, Chipotles and King Street Blues. With the addition of the new AMC movie theater complex and the close by miniature golf course it easy to see why Kingstowne continues to be a popular neighborhood for military families to live.

 

Besides its location close to Fort Belvoir another key to success of the neighborhood is the easy access to two metro stations within a short distance of the neighborhood. Some residents can walk to the Springfield Metro or take a quick drive to the Van Dorn Street Metro Station which makes the neighborhood popular with military families who need to get to the Pentagon or other Military District of Washington sites besides Fort Belvoir.

With the upcoming influx of BRAC personnel the works both Kingstowne and Fort Belvoir will see even more growth in the future. Hopefully the great relationship that has already been forged between the two neighborhoods will continue to grow with the expansion of Fort Belvoir’s mission.

Cindy:  One of my favorite things about Kingstowne is that there is a Pentagon Federal Credit Union Branch there.  And it's a fast and friendly one.  I love that credit union.

Gerry-glad you had a good day.  Wish I had been free to meet up with you but if you were having a quiet day with your wife you probably didn't need an AR gathering :-)

Adam-thank you for stopping by.

Cindy, I actually sold a listing in Kingstowne years ago, and what a sweet community!

Kingstowne sounds great.  I lived at Ft. Belvoir for a year many years ago.
