Covington First Section

The first section of the townhomes in Covington are mostly 2 level, with a contemporary style and large windows.

The townhomes were made in a couple of different phases, each with unique styles. The section close to Rt. 50 consists of compact, contemporary style townhomes.

Some are 2 level, others are 1 level. The townhomes in this section do not have any basements. They were built in the early 1970s with wood siding.

This section offers both 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom models. One unique aspect of this area is the garages! Some of these townhomes boast 1 or even 2 car garages.

The garage is a unique feature for not only Covington Townhomes, but also this era of Townhomes in Fairfax VA as whole. Most of the time garaged townhomes in Northern Virginia are much newer.

This second section of Covington consists of larger townhomes, and are more typical of the types of townhomes you will find around Fairfax VA with 3 levels, 1 being a basement and most are 3 upstairs bedrooms.

The basements are usually partially finished with the utilities downstairs.

Some are “walk out” basements, which mean there is a seperate entrance in the rear of the basement. Others do not have the walkout and are mostly below grade.

Both types of the Covington townhomes are desirable, and in many markets they sell very quickly and have seen good overall appreciation through the years.
