A nice post from Cindy Jones on another Springfield neighborhood. Cindy is the local military relocation specialist that I turn to when a client contacts me about a move to the area.
You can read more of her posts focused on military relocation at www.militaryrelocationnews.com.
In the mid 1970's my college roommate and her husband settled into their first apartment in West Springfield. A few years later those apartments became part of the condominiums that make up the Cardinal Forest neighborhood. Still welcoming newlyweds, military families and retirees the community has matured and maintained its charm. Buyers and owners can say thank you to a diligent homeowners association which makes sure that the neighborhood has been well taken care of over the years.
Buyers may be surprised when they drive through the neighborhood at the wide variety of condominiums available in the Cardinal Forest neighborhood. There are 1, 2 & 3 bedroom single level units, two different models of two level townhouses and a 2100 square foot three level townhouse as well. There are a total of 68 buildings and 1050 units that make up the neighborhood. The condominium fee in Cardinal Forest includes everything but your "plug ins" and whatever internet/cable/phone bundle you may choose.
If you are looking for outdoor recreation you can walk to the back entrance of Lake Accotink Park or take a short drive to Hidden Pond Nature Center. With two swimming pools, multiple tot lots and easy access to shopping you can't find too much to complain about. Metro buses, Fairfax County Connector buses and drivers looking for slugs run right through the community so you can leave your car at home if you work in DC or at the Pentagon. The neighborhood is also convenient for any one stationed at Fort Belvoir. Multiple roads will lead you to the base in less than 30 minutes.
When our family lived across the street in the Charlestown subdivision we walked to the Giant, Whole Foods, Starbucks and the Washington Sports Club, all within a mile. Cardinal Forest is just one of the many terrific West Springfield neighborhoods you might want to call home.
If a move to Northern Virginia is in your future give me a buzz. Let's talk about how we can find the best home for your needs.
