Hidden just across the Prince William County line is the waterfront community of Belmont Bay. As you cross the Occoquan River take a glance to your left and you will be surprised at what you will see. A community Washingtonian Magazine has twice picked as one of the "best communities" to live in the DC area sits right on the Occoquan River.
With a variety of choices from detached homes, townhouses, and condos buyers can find just about anything they are looking for. What makes it even more unusual is the VRE station at the entrance to the community making the commute in to DC a breeze. The main gate of Fort Belvoir is only 15 minutes away, Quantico is 20 minutes to the south and the Pentagon is an easy commute via easy access to the express lanes, commuter parking lot a mile away or the VRE.
Walking around the community you can quickly see why residents love being here. The quiet of the neighborhood is interrupted by the sounds of the geese quacking at the waters edge, the Osprey calling for their mates among the trees and at night the fox yipping as they traverse across the golf course heading back to the 400 acre nature reserve that borders the community.
Residents are able to walk most of the length of the waterfront through the community on paths that go from the edge of the nature reserve, around the front of the Harbor Point Condo's, the marina and front nine of the golf course. The marina at Belmont Bay was the first new deep water marina to open in almost 15 years in Northern Virginia and cost almost $2 million to develop. It can house up to 325 boats and is a popular place for happy hour during warm weather. With a community pool, two sets of tennis courts, a golf course and club house you don't have to go very far to find a place to play.
Currently there are two new developments with condos for sale. Harborside developed by EFO Capital Management overlooks the marina and has units available from the low 400's with parking and storage included. Beacon Park an over 55 developed by Comstock homes on the edge of the 18th hole of the golf course and prices range from the mid 300's and up.
Harborview in Belmont Bay is currently the only luxury high rise in the area. Resale units in the building have been popular especially since this building features on-site management, party room and the only private pool in the community.
With all Belmont Bay has to offer it makes it a great choice for anyone who is looking for a relaxing get away after a long day of work.
