Northern Virginia Homes-Looking Through the Scrapbook of Neighborhoods

Scattered throughout Northern Virginia are a variety of communities that offer buyers significant choices to consider.  Most buyers looking for a home have a unique set of features that they would like to have in their new home.  It is what makes heading out with new buyers so much fun and why our area isn't all about cookie cutter neighborhoods.  So we pulled a few pages out of our Northern Virginia scrapbook to give you an idea of a few choices.

For buyers who like older neighborhoods closer to town then the neighborhoods of Parkfairfax in Alexandria and Fairlington in Arlington (some sections in Alexandria) are great choices.  With hilly tree lined streets, classic brick buildings and a great location both of these neighborhoods have stood the test of time since they were built in the 1940's.

Are you looking for something that others might consider off the beaten path?  Then you should take a look at Hollin Hills in Alexandria or Holmes Run Acres in Annandale.  Both neighborhoods are part of the small mid-century modern movement that happened in Northern Virginia in the 1960's.  With classic lines, loads of glass and connection to their lots these homes offer buyers a chance to bond with nature in a way that other neighborhoods might not.

Thinking a bit more traditional?  Then some of the affordable neighborhoods in Springfield might be right for you.  Cardinal Forest, Charlestown and Orange Hunt have all stood the test of time and are particularly popular with military families stationed at the Pentagon or Fort Belvoir

 Need just a bit more space and want a bit more privacy?  Then you might want to check out Fairfax Station and the neighborhoods of Barrington, Crosspointe and South Run.

Even though all of these neighborhoods are very different in style they all have one thing in common.  They are close to shopping, transportation, schools and loads of fun things to do.   So no matter what style or type of home you are looking for in Northern Virginia you will probably be able to find it.

'Like the way you created subdivision searches.   I may have to call you for a tutorial on that.  Setting up IDX is still a puzzle for me.  Very nice, Cindy, as always!

Cindy - I love the red brick homes that are so common up there!!!
Posted by Billnulls Blog Florida Realty Professional, AHWD (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Bill & Barbara Jo- Yes we do have lots of brick.  Most of the older neighborhoods the homes are solid brick and block construction.  New homes are brick veneer and siding.  Not as solid but following "tradition."
