Kings Park-Now and Then

“The more things change, the more they stay the same” at least that’s what Alphonse Karr is credited with saying sometimes in the 1800’s. The phrase came to mind when looking at an original ad for the Kings Park neighborhood in Springfield VA recently (click ad to see larger)

In comparing the ad to a listing I sold on Kempton Drive it struck me how 50 years since the Kings Park neighborhood was built many of the homes still look the same.

Most of the homes have been updated but occasionally you still run across one of the blue, green or yellow original bathrooms. Prices in the neighborhood have changed since the 1960’s but the nice sized treed lots are the same.   Kings Park is close to multiple shopping centers and there are a variety  commuting options for owners to get to DC, Fairfax City, George Mason University, Fort Belvoir or just about anywhere in the nations capitol region.
