Tucked away just a few miles from DC in Alexandria VA are the rolling hills, tree lined streets and brick buildings that make up the community of Parkfairfax. Parkfairfax has the distinction of being the former of home of two past presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. Both lived in the community prior to taking the highest office in the land. Fitting since all of the condo models are named after presidents!
Parkfairfax was originally built to fulfill the need for housing close to the Federal Government, Pentagon and DC in 1941. The homes were constructed as apartments by the same construction company that built the Empire State Building. In 1968 the apartment buildings were sold to a new development company and were remodeled with new kitchens and individual room AC units. From the late 1960's through the mid-1970's Park Fairfax was mostly forgotten. Fortunately the attempts to tear down the buildings are replace them with high rise apartments were unsuccessful.
Then in 1977 IDI, a major local development company, purchased the land for over 24 million dollars and began the conversion of apartments to condominiums. Original sales prices ranged from $27,000 to $54,000. Parkfairfax became a thriving tree lined community with an abundance of community amentias including 3 swimming pools, 8 tennis courts, party rooms and 2 volleyball courts.
Direct bus service to the Pentagon and the Pentagon City Metro Station are available in the community. Less than 5 miles to the DC line makes it close to the Navy Yard, Bolling AFB and Federal Government Offices as well. Take the pedestrian bridge to Shirlington's Restaurant Row and shop at Pentagon City Mall. For these and more reasons Parkfairfax has once again become a HOT community.
