Parkfairfax Delivers Affordability Close to DC



For stressed urban workers seeking a place of solace and quiet by the end of the day, Parkfairfax offers a suburban feel with open green lawns and tall hardwoods to welcome you home yet it’s only minutes away from DC by car or bus and very affordable.   The suburban condo community of Parkfairfax is a neighborhood in northwest Alexandria off North Quaker Lane and just south of I-395.  Nearby thoroughfares are I-395, Route 402 and West Glebe Road.  It’s a quick drive to the Pentagon, Crystal City, Old Town and DC.

The leafy and quiet neighborhood consists of 1,684 townhouse condominiums from 1-4 bedrooms sited on 132 green hilly and wooded acres.  The condos enjoy traditional Colonial exteriors and are no taller than 3 stories.  Most of the condos are 1 and 2 bedroom units all of which have been renovated to include updated kitchens and open floor plans, and backyard patios.  Most of the condos still have their original hardwood floors whose solid construction keeps residents from hearing their next- door neighbors. 

The Parkfairfax is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and on the Virginia Landmarks Register.  Past dignitaries who have lived in Parkfairfax include former Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford when they were in the U.S. Congress, and former Secretary of State (under President Kennedy) Dean Rusk.  Metropolitan Life originally built the community in the 1940’s to house workers at the nearby Pentagon.  The Parkfairfax was converted to condos in 1978.

Amenities include 3 swimming pools, 8 tennis courts, 2 volleyball courts, fitness center, car wash area, library, a gathering room and woodland walking trails.  There are social activities on the calendar like outdoor jazz concerts in the summer.  Grounds are landscaped and well maintained.  Nearby is the community of Shirlington that provides restaurants, shops, bars, live theater, and a cinema.  Shirlington is a few minutes walk across a pedestrian bridge that takes you to bars and popular restaurants like Busboys and Poets and Capitol City Brewing Company.
