It seems Edwin Carr the developer of the Cardinal Forest in West Springfield knew the convenient location would attract service members stationed at Fort Belvoir and the Pentagon. In fact talk about "hyper-local" advertising. Looks like he had it figured out in 1965.
Guess what? With express Metro Bus Service (18G) running through the neighborhood to the Pentagon, Fairfax Connector Service to the Springfield Metro and easy access to I-95 the Pentagon is still easy to get to from Cardinal Forest. Add in the expanded Fairfax County Parkway and the trip to Fort Belvoir and the new NGA facility have improved.
With ¼ acre or larger lots the homes in Cardinal Forest show the care that owners have taken since the neighborhood was originally developed in the 1960's. From two level ramblers to the largest 5 bedroom colonial you can find a home that fits your needs.
