Where We Live: Regal Oaks

Regal Oaks is a small community of 60 townhomes right outside the beltway, just south of Tyson’s Corner with easy access off Gallows Road. It has all the amenities of it’s incredible central location, while still having the benefit of suburban living, with its no-outlet thru streets and abundance of greenery. The neighborhood was built in the early 90s and features modern colonial town homes. While a small community, it has a very intimate neighborhood feel with an active HOA and friendly residents.

The great benefit of this community, is its incredible location. Located right outside the beltway, but near enough to enjoy easy access to many local landmarks and points of interest. You’re just less than two miles from Tyson’s Corner Mall, and if you hop on 495, you can head into DC, or any of the surrounding Cities. There are multiple local concert venues, with the stand-out and nearest being Wolf Trap. I’ve attended many events at Wolf Trap “where the arts come out to play.” It’s great fun to have a picnic on the lawn while enjoying the great variety of shows the venue attracts. For more hyper-local points of interest, the Regal Oaks community website has a map that can be found here http://www.theregaloaks.com/pointsofinterest.htm .

Another great advantage of this community is its greenery and welcoming community outdoor area. Many of the homes back to woods and with it’s no outlet roads, the community stays quiet and calm, a rarity this close into DC. The spacious common area has plenty of wide open flat space and a spacious gazebo, making it ideal for gatherings and events or just to take the dog for some fresh air. It also has proximity to various parks and paths, including South Railroad Street park, Washington & Old Dominion trail, and is not far from famed Clemyjontri park.

Regal Oak’s schools are Stenwood Elementary, Kilmer Middle, and Marshall High School, all well rated Fairfax County Schools, making them among the best schools in the nation. There are also three nearby libraries, Tyson’s Pimmit, Patrick Henry, and Thomas Jefferson Library.

Finally, there is the benefit of a well-managed HOA and the residents of this community. With the neighborhood being as hospitable as it is, new residents quickly become well acquainted with their neighbors. Doubly so during the warmer months when people spend time in the common area. The HOA is active and their website is among the most helpful HOA websites you’ll find. It can be found http://www.theregaloaks.com/ and can give you a fuller feel for the neighborhood.

Three homes sold in this community in 2017, for between $700,000 and $775,000. While inventory is presently on the low side, we have one Coming Soon in this very neighborhood.  If you’re interested in potentially purchasing in this community or you have a home to sell, give us a call at 703-734-0192 or at Homes@HBCGroupKW.com. We’d love to help you find your next home!
