With the upcoming influx of military and civilian personnel scheduled to move to Fort Belvoir, neighborhoods within 30 minutes of the post in Prince William County are gearing up for new homeowners to arrive. All of these neighborhoods offer great value in today’s market and they offer a choice for buyers which include foreclosures, new homes and re-sales.
The first community you find when you cross the Occoquan River is Belmont Bay. With its waterfront location, variety of home styles and communities amenities it isn’t a surprise that this community has been discovered by military families being stationed at Fort Belvoir. If you walk the waterfront paths in the community you will be greeted with a smile and hello from everyone you pass. Kids love to run on the pavilion green and watch the boats coming and going from the gazebo by the docks. Commuters appreciate the quick hop onto Route 1 to head to Fort Belvoir or the VRE station right in the neighborhood to take them into Alexandria or DC.
As you travel a little further south on Route 1 your next stop is the award winning community of Potomac Club. The jewel of the neighborhood is the 12 million dollar community club house with both indoor and outdoor pools, rock climbing wall and business center. The townhouses and townhouse style condominiums are stacked up the hillside creating winding streets and pockets of green space. The newly opened Wegmans grocery store is within walking distance and there is easy access to either Route 1 or I-95.
Another mile down the road and you the final two developments on this tour of Prince William County neighborhoods perfect for BRAC. The first is Eagles Pointe and enclave of detached homes with another terrific community clubhouse. The detached homes are clustered on no-through streets and are separated from other nearby developments with a stand of full growth trees. Across the street is the community of Port Potomac. With a mixture of detached homes and townhouses the development features a Williamsburg style club house, pedestrian friendly streets and walking trails. The community has been popular with families looking for a location close to shopping and public transportation.
All of these neighborhoods are close to shopping at Potomac Mills, Wegman’s and recreation at numerous parks in the area. If you find yourself with plans to relocate to Fort Belvoir as part of BRAC then give me a call. These communities are just a sampling of what you will find within a 30 minute commute of Fort Belvoir.
