Fairfax Station is both a subdivision in Fairfax County and a “postal address” in Fairfax County. The postal address is a fairly large area wedged between Clifton on the west, Lorton in the south, Burke on the east, and Fairfax on the North. This report is on the subdivision called Fairfax Station, which is a collection of about 540 detached homes that sits right at the intersection of Route 123 and the Fairfax County Parkway. These homes sit on lots that are generally between 1/2 acre and 1.5 acres, though some lots in the neighborhood are much larger.
The houses in the neighborhood are mostly colonials, with some large ramblers and cape cods mixed in. The houses are generally 2500-3500 square feet of living space, plus almost all of the houses have basements and garages. Most houses in the neighborhood were built in the early 1980s by a variety of builders. There are some houses that are the same model, but generally there is a large variety of houses in the neighborhood.
There is a private swim club in the neighborhood that many of the residents belong to. It works as the social hub of the neighborhood in the summer months and has swim, dive, and tennis teams that many in the neighborhood are a part of. The Home Owners Association also owns quite a bit of land that includes a small park and Pickett Pond where residents can catch fish from the side.
