Kings Park West consists of about 2200 homes. A large amount of these are single family, detached homes with yards.
To the northern section of the neighborhood are clusters of townhomes.
Chances are, you are looking for either a detached home or a townhome. Later, I will give you more info on both.
Kings Park West was developed Richmarr Homes. The same developer built Kings Park, another neighborhood in Northern Virginia directly to the east in Springfield.
The neighborhood was started in 1967 and built in phases continuing all the way up to 1986.
An elementary school was opened in the middle of the neighborhood, and on the west the community surrounds Robinson Secondary, which goes from middle school through high school. Both were opened in the early 1970s.
Amenities & Location
Location is a big reason why you may be looking into this neighborhood.
The growth of George Mason University has made the home values in this area rise. Especially in Kings Park West since the college is walkable from many of the homes. For this reason, this real estate also attracts investors.
If investing is your goal, read on below to why the townhomes may be the first place to look.
Walkability to the grade schools is another attractive feature of the neighborhood. You can get to the schools without going on through streets in many sections of homes.
Lake Royal is also located in the southern section of the community. This gives the area lots of green space, and you can enjoy the amenities of Royal Lake Park.
This includes soccer fields, fishing, boating, basketball, tot lot & outdoor workout equipment. There are also other townhome communities by the lake, some with lake views.
The neighborhood is a quick drive from both Fairfax City and Burke, which has lots of shopping, dining and entertainment.
It is also easily accessible to the VRE, which can be taken into Union Station in DC.
Kings Park West’s townhomes are some of the most sought after in Fairfax. There is good reason for this.
First of all, they are large. Most of the models have more than 2,000 square feet. The end units are the biggest, with many reaching up to 2,500 square feet.
The basements usually are finished and many have a full bathroom and large extra rec room/office area.
The second reason they are so popular is the location. Kings Park West has a great location. But the townhomes are in perhaps the best spot for accessibility.
They are on the very north side of the community, and off of Roberts Road. The homes are up against Braddock Road. Right across the street is George Mason University. Easily walkable for residents of the townhomes.
The last reason they are very popular is there are just many of them. In a fast moving market, they get snatched up quickly. If you are searching in a buyers market it is a good time to get one and hold it for the long term.
The location near campus has made the properties popular as a “buy and hold” investment to rent out. But the size and proximity to main roads and transportation make them a good buy for anyone looking in Fairfax for a townhome.
Single Family Homes
There is a lot to love about this neighborhood. The single family homes give buyers a chance to own in a community with a great long term outlook. Here is why.
The community has a great Civic Association. With that said, many properties have had large additions put on the homes. Many HOAs restrict this kind of thing, but I think in the long term it is good for the neighborhood property values.
Additionally, the neighborhood has a lot of nature around. The Rabbit Branch stream runs through the neighborhood, and there is a lot of green space to boot.
Many homes back to wooded areas. On the south side of the neighborhood is Lake Royal. Kings Park West is the homes that you can see when walking around the trail.
Water views are rare in Fairfax County, and this area has some of the most serene.
The homes themselves were originally built in the 1960s and 1970s, although some have been newly redone.
The original homes are a good combination of split levels, two story colonials and one level ramblers. The neighborhoods have basements with varying degrees of finishes.
The builder gave very royal names for the home models, such as The Baron, The Prince, The Regent, The King and The Queen.
Selling Your Home In Kings Park West
There comes a time to sell a home. No matter how much you love the neighborhood maybe it is time to move on.
Tips For Selling
+ Work with someone who knows the neighborhood and also the surrounding area. When buyers are touring homes, they do not always realize when they are in a community as special as Kings Park West. Get an expert who can sell the community as well as your home. I know the community and can get you the results you want.
+ Prepare. Check out this guide on preparing for sale. A well prepared home will mean more interest and ultimately more profit at closing.
+ If you have a seasonal view, take a high quality photo of the view and save it for when you sell. Let’s say you can see Lake Royal in the winter, but in the spring it is covered by trees. You can use the photo when the water view is at its best in the listing.
+ Know the market. If you want to know what kind of market you are selling in, get in touch with the form below. I can send you a free report.
