I’m as excited about your next home as you are.
Sycamores at Van Dorn is part of the Founder’s Hill community. The neighborhood boasts large, upscale three-story condos, built in the last five years. The neighborhood is quiet and well maintained and the condominiums feature elegant hard wood floors and large windows.
Sycamores at Van Dorn is located just outside the Beltway off Van Dorn via Oakwood. It’s close enough for a long walk to the Van Dorn Metro and has great access for commuters headed to the Beltway or Alexandria. Residents can make use of the community’s outdoor swimming pool, clubhouse and tot lot. Sycamores at Van Dorn is part of Fairfax School District and its residents attend Franconia Elementary School, Key Middle School, and Edison High School. The setting is quiet and pleasant despite being remarkably close to the Beltway.
Like many of the garden-style condos built in Northern Virginia area after about 1990, the Sycamores has a breezeway with broad wooden stairs in the common area. This design greatly reduces condo fees for several reasons. Firstly and mostly, maintaining and operating a safe elevator can be a big part of your condo fee especially in a smaller community. Older condos with stairs on the outside of the structure need more maintenance than stairs in a roof. The breezeway at the Sycamores is the best option for keeping condo fees low because there is no carpeting to maintain on the stairs and there is no bill to heat and cool the common areas.
