The townhomes at Fair Woods were built on either side of the exit where Rt. 50 meets Fairfax County Parkway on the western side of Fairfax VA. Construction took place in the mid 1980s.
Fair Woods is within walking distance of the community is Pender Village Center. Grocery store, banking and other shops make this a popular spot for the residents.
The HOA is also active and occasionally works out discounts for residents from local business which can be found on their website.
The community is also just north of Fair Lakes and other large town centers like Fairfax Corner. If you think there is nothing to do in the suburbs, you were wrong. But that is ok, us suburbanites forgive you for thinking that.

The different exteriors of Fair Woods townhomes make it a very unique community in Fairfax.
The townhomes have many styles. They have some with covered porch areas and in the front with vinyl, and uniquely shaped bump-outs and roof lines.
They also have more traditional townhomes that have similar exteriors to other neighborhoods. Vinyl and brick front siding are the options.
However, the biggest and best are the end units. They also come in different styles. The full brick end units have an entrance on the side.
If you look at them from the front, you would think it is a detached home. And the square footage says the same, some of these townhomes come in at an estimated 2300+ sq ft with the basement.
Inside, there is a similar story. Lots of variety. These townhomes were built in the 1980s, so updating is seen throughout many of them.
But there are also lots of thoughtful layouts by the original builders that make these townhomes different.
