Fort Hunt Road borders the west along with route 1 offering vast shop stops such as Belle View, Hollin Hall, Mount Vernon Plaza, and Hybla Valley. Wilson Bridge is an arms-length away while the Parkway connects commuters to Alexandria and other north points. The Huntington Metro stop also services the area. Fort Hunt/Mount Vernon area is well known to buyers for its outstanding Fairfax County Public Schools, county services and safety.

The forest is more than just a name in Marlan Forest. Many trees were spared to maintain the natural environment and thus residents are surrounded by towering old-growth trees. The nearby homes are usually beautifully landscaped, complementing the luxurious greens of the development.

Marlan Forest is a community of single-family residences on large lots. It is at the northern end of the Fort Hunt area on a ridge overlooking the Potomac River.
