One of my first blogs talked about the condos and apartments around the Vienna Orange Line. Now let’s look at the townhomes within walking distance to this station (defined as within a half mile of the Metro).
Adjacent to the new Metro West community on Lee Highway is Circle Woods, a townhome community of 290 units built in the late 1970’s. Prices now are around the upper $300s +. There is a swimming pool, etc. Walking to the Metro will be easier once the roads are completed through Metro West. Country Creek is another older community near the Acadia and Marquis buildings on the North side of the Metro (although there are some newer townhomes with garages behind the condo buildings). The newer townhomes, built around 2005 have recent sales in the mid $600s. The older properties were constructed in the early 1980’s and are priced in the mid $400s. On that same side of the Metro Station are a group of 155 townhomes with garages (3 bedrooms/3 baths) built in 1993. The subdivision is named Virginia Center and prices tend to be around the upper $500s to mid and upper $600s.
Directly across from the North garage at the Vienna Metro is Vienna Station a group of 35 townhomes. (The legal subdivision is named Fairfax Metro Square). Built in 1994, the latest sale of a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 3 level unit was $515,000. Closer to Oakton High School is a small group of 27 townhomes names Ivy Square. These are 3 level townhomes with 3-4 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms. Many have fireplaces and 1-2 half baths. The latest sale in this community was $470,000. On the corner of Virginia Center Blvd. and Nutley Street is a community of 154 units, some with garages and fireplaces. The Townes of Moorefield are 35 years old, approximately one mile from the Vienna Metro, with a community pool, basketball and tennis courts. The most recent sale was a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 1 half bath, 2 fireplace unit with a 2 car garage. The close price was $534,000.
