If residents of the Landsdowne Community in Alexandria (VA) wanted to walk to Fort Belvoir they could. It is less than ½ mile to the Telegraph Road gate to the base and once inside Telegraph gate you are close to the golf course, PX and Commissary.
The Landsdowne community is a mix of townhouses and detached homes originally built by Pulte and Richmond America in the late 1980's. With just over 600 homes the community pales in comparison to its neighbor Kingstowne's 5800 hundred homes but residents aren't complaining about their small size. With their own community pool, tennis courts and tot lots residents of Landsdowne don't feel deprived.
Besides the close proximity to Fort Belvoir, owners in Landsdowne can also walk to the Landsdowne shopping center and the Kingstowne library. Only a few miles from the Franconia-Springfield or Van Dorn Metro Stations and with easy access to I-95 & I-495 owners who commute to the city or the Pentagon have multiple commuting options, including a Fairfax County Connector bus within walking distance.
When you need more activities you can head to the Lee District Recreation Center or the Greendale Golf Course both run by the Fairfax County Park Authority. The restaurants and movie theaters at Kingstowne are close by as well as historic Mount Vernon and Woodlawn Plantation.
If living in a smaller community with easy access to Fort Belvoir is on your to do list then give the Cindy Jones a call at 703-346-2213.
