One minute you are experiencing the flashy lights of the Mosaic District, the next you are walking down a serene path alongside a lake. Where in Falls Church could you possibly be? The Lakeford community is where! Located just a mile away from the Mosaic district, inside the Beltway, less than ½ mile to Route 66, Route 50/Arlington Boulevard, and Lee Highway. With easy metro access as well, our lovely nation’s capital is just a ride away!  

Made up of three townhouse communities, and two condo associations, there are 600 total units and it is pet-friendly. Many might be wondering, does the lake allow boats? Unfortunately, not, but there are many other amenities that will keep you active. There are outdoor tennis courts within the community, along with an outdoor pool. If you still want to get close to the lake, there is a walking path that runs alongside it. Just across the street you will find the best golf deal in all of Northern Virginia. Jefferson public park is a 9-hole course. They offer carts or you can carry your own clubs for less than 20 dollars. The park also contains a miniature-golf course which is fun and less time consuming for the whole family. The main attraction of the park however, has to be the outdoor basketball courts. This park is notorious for being the best spot to play some pick-up, and you can play into the night as there are lights. Hours can be spent within this park, and it will feel like time is flying because there is so much to do!

As mentioned before, the Mosaic District is just a mile away with many restaurants offering cuisines from all over the world. A local favorite is Bar Taco, with tapas style sharing food, hip decor, and nice outdoor seating this spot is a happy hour gold mine. The Mosaic District is the perfect spot for you and your special someone to have a nice date night. After the happy hour, if you feel like kicking back for a bit, there is the Angelika theater. An upscale movie theater that offers a selection of wine and beer, with supple leather seats that do in fact recline! This area offers something for everyone and now is a great time to buy!

Lakeford is a community of just under 250 townhomes in Falls Church, 22042. In 2018, 18 homes sold in this neighborhood from a 2 bed 2 bath interior unit at $360,000 to a beautifully maintained and updated 3 bed 3.5 bath end-unit for $620,000.
