Fair Lakes is located near the intersection of West Ox Road and Fair Lakes Parkway and 66 and Fairfax County Parkway.  This planned community includes townhomes, homes, condos, apartments, extensive retail shops, office buildings, walking trails and lakes all integrated into a nicely treed and natural setting.  

As a resident of Fair Lakes for 6 years, I really enjoy being able to easily walk to stores and restaurants.  Among the many stores located within a mile radius are Wholefoods, Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, Starbucks (2), Fair Oaks Mall and Costco.  We have 8 miles of walking trails and community basketball and volleyball courts, as well as a volleyball league open to all residents.  

You will never run out of dining options. Easy-to-find restaurants include Pomodoro (margarita pizza with arugula is amazing), Chutzpah (NY deli-type food), Tsunami (sushi bar), Blue Iguana (local flair), Joe’s Crab Shack, and Sakura (Japanese steakhouse).  Among the choices just outside Fair Lakes are Coastal Flats and Ozzie’s (Italian).

As mentioned, the housing in this community consists mostly of townhomes, condos and apartments.  The townhomes sold from $400k to $550k on average these last 12 months.  The condos sold from  $200k to $500k but mostly in the $300k range.  Townhomes sell fast here because of their desirable location and price points.  Schools are Greenbrier East Elementary, Lanier Middle and Fairfax High School.

For commuters, an added bonus is free bus shuttle service to Vienna Metro during rush hour from 16 different Fair Lake locations. You just need to register to get a free pass at http://fairlakes.com/pages/fairlakes-shuttle.

I would be pleased to assist you in finding or selling a home in this community.  You can always contact me at 703-424-3191, or email me at artwenk@msn.com.  I look forward to working with you.
