As I was driving through the Newington Forest neighborhood in Springfield this week I encountered this guy just off the side of the road. It was a nice reminder that when Newington Forest was being built 50% of the 734 acres of the development was set-aside as community common areas. This resulted in a community with large mature trees and five miles of hiking and biking trails.
Owners in Newington Forest have a choice of townhomes or detached homes spread out among the remaining 300 plus acres of the community. Looking for a starter place? Then the smallest Pepperwood model townhouse may be just for you. Need room to expand then check out the largest Shenandoah model detached home. There are plenty of options for you to choose from.
Since Newington Forest covers a large area in Springfield children may attend either schools in the South County Pyramid or the Hayfield Pyramid. With it’s proximity to Fort Belvoir and easy access to multiple commuter lots, slug lines and the Franconia Springfield Metro the neighborhood has always been popular with military families. With the new NGA facility opening in Fall 2011 the neighborhood will also be popular with employees looking to live close by.
