Dunn Loring (often misspelled as “Dun Loring") is an area in Fairfax County that covers the cities of Fairfax, Vienna, and Falls Church. The Dunn Loring / Merrifield area has an excellent school system and is one of the fastest growing regions in terms of developed real estate in Fairfax County. One of the several factors attributed to Dunn Loring's growth is its metro accessibility via the Orange line of the WMATA. If you're thinking about purchasing real estate in the Dunn Loring / Merrifield area of Virginia (VA) there are several options to consider. The following article will provide an overview of a few condo communities in Dunn Loring:
The Halstead - As one of the fastest selling communities in McWilliams Ballard (the agency representing the developer) sales history, The Halstead appeals to many potential purchasers in the Washington DC metro area. Built in 2006, Halstead at the Metro has one and two bedroom models ranging from approximately 700 sq ft to over 1200 sq ft. Some of the most desired models are those on the top floor. The top most (4th floor) has penthouse loft condos with 30 ft ceilings, step out balconies, and built in niches for flat screen TV's. The community also has secure garage parking. Halstead boasts some of the best amenities in the Dunn Loring area including: an indoor basketball court, top of the line athletic facility, and internet café.
Wilton House - If you like hi-rise living in Dunn Loring, Wilton House is the place for you. The 12 floors make this condo community one of the most recognizable on the Dunn Loring skyline. Originally built as a hi-end apartment community, Wilton House went condo in 2005. The majority of the units come with hardwood floors and updated appliances. One of the many convenient factors of living at Wilton House is that it is located next door to the Courtyard Marriott in Vienna, VA. . . a perfect place for “not-so-close" visitors to stay. Amenities at Wilton House include an exercise facility, business center with free WIFI, and a roof top pool.
Westbriar Plaza - Slightly older than Halstead and Wilton House, Westbriar Plaza is not to be overlooked. Because it is older, this community often has condos for sale that are much more economically priced than similar sized units at Halstead and Wilton House. The top floor units are some of the most highly desired with loft floor plans, skylights and vaulted ceilings. The list of amenities at Westbriar are short, and as a result the condo fees are cheap. Westbriar Plaza has coveted western views, and with Virginia sunsets being what they are, you may be spending plenty of time on the balconies of these beautiful condos!
