If you are moving to Northern Virginia as part of the BRAC 05 or have PCS orders to Fort Belvoir, you should put Springfield Oaks on your list of neighborhoods to consider. Situated on 18 acres of wooded and gently rolling terrain the 382 townhouses in Springfield Oaks are only 5 miles from Fort Belvoir and 2 miles to the new National Geospatial Intellegence Agency (NGA) opening in Springfield in September 2011.
The community is also within a few minutes of the shops and restaurants at Lorton Station and the the Lorton VRE Station. It is about 15 minutes to the Franconia-Springfield Metro or you can catch a Fairfax Connector or Metro bus at either entrance to the community
Townhouses in Springfield Oaks range from aproximately 1200 square feet for one of the smaller 2 Bedroom/2.5 BA Sheridan Model to the largest Bradford Model with 3 Bedroom/3.5 BA at just under 1700 SF. There are a few garage townhomes in the neighborhood but the majority of the homes come with 2 parking spaces instead of a garage.
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. 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.
