All That Is Missing is the Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand
You will feel as if you have stepped back in time when children sold lemonade on street corners when you stroll the streets of South Run in Fairfax County VA.  Located just 25 miles south of DC in Fairfax County, the South Run neighborhood exudes southern hospitality and old fashioned neighborhood charm.

Homeowners in South Run enjoy the feel of a long lost neighborhood spirit.  With BBQ's in the summer, pool parties, Halloween activities and an active neighborhood social committee that plans dozens of events a year the neighborhood has an unusual community feel in an area known for the commuter lifestyle. 



South Run HomeNestled on tree lined 1/3 acre or larger lots the 530 homes that make up the South Run neighborhood in Fairfax Station are a great find in the Northern Virginia area. Unlike other neighborhoods close by South Run owners don't have to worry about new home construction destroying their peace and tranquility.  Careful planning made use of all of the available building area leaving owners a neighborhood that has been undisturbed for 20 years. 

For families with school age children these neighborhoods are served by terrific Fairfax County Schools. Elementary age students attend Silverbrook Elementary School or Halley Elementary School  and older students attend the new South County Secondary School The new Lorton Arts Workhouse is nearby which provides the opportunity for students interested in the arts to participate in a number of theater and arts workshops offered throughout the year.


Clifton HomeWhen homeowners need more space to roam they can hop on their bikes and head to the neighboring Burke Lake Park.   Nearby attractions include the historic town of Clifton, St Mary's of Sorrows Church and Old Town Fairfax.

With a location just minutes away from the VRE, slug lines and metro South Run owners can leave there car close to home and not worry about emptying their gas tanks to get to work. With its close proximity for Fort Belvoir and The Pentagon, South Run is also a favorite for military families who move to the area,  

Glass of LemonadeIf you would like to make South Run your new home give me a call.  I'd be glad to buy you a tall glass of lemonade to sip on our tour of this great neighborhood.

Cindy, I know what you mean about these lemonade stands. I've stopped my car in neighborhoods and always buy the stuff from the kids on hot days. They work so hard. It is like stepping back in time.

Shirlley-Fortunately in our area we have a number of these "older" neighborhoods that remind me of the one I grew up in.

Rich-no it is a real neighborhood with great community spirit.  Such a refreshing change over so many commuter neighborhoods where no one ever gets to know their neighbor.
