Woodbridge VA Homes Near Commuter Rail Stations

Last week in my post "Yes It's Official DC Metro Traffic Sucks" one of the solutions suggested to beat the commuter blues for home buyers was to look for homes near Prince William County homes close to commuter rail stations.

We have all read the stories of how the railroad opened up development throughout the United States and changed the face of our young nation. When transportation officials and developers began planning the Virginia Rail Express (VRE) along the I-95 corridor in 1992 there were concerns as to whether the lack of housing near the train stations would derail the long term plans for a commuter trail. Just like the Wild West the train brought a new supply of "whistle stop" towns close to the eastern run of the tracks including Belmont Bay, Rippon Landing and Quantico.

The Woodbridge Station sits just at the edge of Belmont Bay and is within a mile of the marina that is the jewel of the community. Still growing Belmont Bay offers buyers the chance to live in a community that includes a marina, the public Osprey Golf Course and waterfront walking paths. Neighboring a 400 acre nature reserve residents have a chance to not only enjoy the community but watch Osprey's soar and fox run. With waterfront condos, townhouses, golf villas and detached homes residents enjoy a resort style lifestyle all year long.

Only a few miles south of Belmont Bay you hit the Rippon Landing station. When you get off the train you can look up the hill and see the new Potomac Pointe condos. What you don't notice until you top the hill is that the condos enjoy a stunning view of the Potomac River. The lot is general full with commuters who come in from Port Potomac or Eagles Pointe. The station is also within walking distance to townhouse owners at Riverside Station or the detached homes in Dawson's Landing.

The last station in Prince William County is the Quantico Station. Located within the gates of Quantico Marine Base commuters must drive in to the base in order to get to the station. However that doesn't seem to stop anyone who wants to grab a cup of coffee at the Whistlestop Coffee Shop before boarding the train. New developments including Cramer's Ridge, Lionsfield Valley and the Reserve at Potomac Crest have increased the popularity of the Quantico Station and it is a great chance for active duty military who need to make a morning run to the Pentagon a chance to grab the train and transfer to the metro in Springfield.

Such good information about rail solutions in and around Woodbridge Cindy, plus those maps with the pin points so well graphically illustrate the locations.

Most helpful for buyers to see where the homes are in proximity to the train station for their commute.

I would much rather sit on a train and read the paper than sit in traffic and swear at my steering wheel.  There are places in the DC area where that can happen.  Call Cindy Jones to help you find a great home in the DC area.

Cindy,

Whenever I'm going down to DC, I try very hard never to drive. Closest Metro to me is about 12 miles but still well worth the commute.

Thanks Gary.  I work around these neighborhoods on a regular basis and it's a great way to commute to DC.

Thank you Hannah I appreciate your support.

Thanks Chris and Dick I agree I'd rather enjoy the train than looking at the taillights in front of me.

Rich-I can walk to a VRE station to get to DC during the week or grab a bus to the Springfield Metro.  Next on my to do list is to take the express bus to Tysons Corner with Free WiFi.
