Rolling Valley Homes For Sale

Springfield is more than just a cartoon town. There are several Springfields in America, but only one in Virginia, and it was possibly the first to start that trendy name that everyone knows today. This Springfield isn’t a madcap corner where the impossible meets the absurd. Quite the contrary. Springfield, VA is one of the quietest, safest and most prestigious towns on the East Coast, with some of the fastest rising neighborhoods in terms of their value, and their quality of life. One of those neighborhoods is the Rolling Valley subdivision, which has flourished and maintained consistent high quality of living for the last 60 years.

Now, Rolling Valley has 1,089 homes, a neighborhood with a population close to the same as the whole city had decades ago. These illustrious two-story family houses have all different makes and models, with renovations and attachments made after generations of ownership and value-driving improvements that make the neighborhood a prestigious community surrounded by nature with quick access to the metropolitan conveniences. It’s the best of both worlds, the best of history, with the best people to enjoy it.

Living in Rolling Valley

Located a little west of West Springfield, east of Keene Mill Heights, Rolling Valley encompasses a good chunk of the city and sits just above the major connecting road to Barkers Crossroads.  homes start in the area of $645,000, but some have closed for $1,150,000 on the market. All homes are family centric, with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Some have attached garages, and all have a yard and lawn. Also available are Condos, Townhouses and Lofts, with new developments rising since the region’s founding to capitalize on the growing population trends.

 

Living in one of these homes is already a perfect piece of suburban living, with high earning professionals making up the majority of the financial demographic. The neighborhood also offers an array of organized meetups and events throughout the year which help unite the subdivision into a community. Within the neighborhood are a few purpose-built recreational centers, exclusive clubs, outdoor cooking and eating platforms and neighborhood-regulated competitive teams for sports. No matter what someone is interested in, they can find their place to do it out of Rolling Valley.

 

From the top, the Rolling Valley Swim and Tennis Club functions as a neighborhood run country club of sorts. It features three full-size pools for adults, children and a small wading pool for babies to learn to swim with parental supervision. This is also the center for the Rolling Valley competitive swimming team, a place for young and older athletes alike to practice at a level above public pool playtime and really learn how to tread water. While on dry land, the Tennis Club has regular meetings, scheduled lessons, and even lit courts for evening and night-time practice so anyone with an itchy racket elbow can get in a round regardless of their daily schedule.

 

Being outdoors in Rolling Valley is being part of a suburban mesh between old fashion rural landscapes and modern amenities. As such, the entire neighborhood has wi-fi services. No more roaming data or 4G misconnections. As part of the Homeowner’s Association fee, all residents get access to a shared network which can follow them on their phones or personal devices on every street. Including the parks where grilling pavilions serve as a gathering point for all grill fans.

 

Throughout the summer, the community hosts events on a bi-weekly basis, including holiday celebrations and team meets for competitions. There is always something going on and new events in the works for families to enjoy. These can take place anywhere from the Swim and Tennis club to the public parks where kids can enjoy Easter Egg hunts set up and chaperoned by volunteer parents right up to back-to-school week parties to celebrate the last days of summer before returning to the regionally lauded Rolling Valley Elementary School - home of the Rockin’ Robins. This is one of the highest rated schools in the state for primary education, right next to the community’s division.

 

Going a little further from the center of the neighborhood, the whole city of Springfield is available for residents to explore. But sticking closer to nature, there are still plenty of sights worth seeing aside from one’s own backyard. The Pohick Stream Valley Park is a walkable nature trail near Burke, just a short drive away. It winds through a sprawling woodland landscape with a running stream under a bridge. It’s highly accessible. From strollers to wheelchairs, and even road biking, the 3 mile course is open year round to take in the sights and sounds of every season in the great outdoors.

Hidden Pond Nature Center 

Roilling_Valley_Homes_For_Sale_Nature_Center

For those who want to experience nature without getting lost in it, the Hidden Pond Nature Center is one part nature reserve and one part playground. Surrounding an undisturbed piece of woodland, educational tours are set up to explain the state of nature in its own particular balance with exhibits and displays indoors. The outdoor area around the eponymous pond features vistas of the placid waters as birds trot and fish swim about. It’s a great place for kids to come to learn about the wildlife in their own backyard, and then playing on the unique playground set up.

If you’ve had enough of grass and trees, moving more towards Springfield you’ll be met with a metro sprawl of shopping centers, commerce and business. One of the city’s landmark developments is the Springfield Mall, now commonly called the Springfield Town Center. This is the hub of shopping for the area, a sprawling complex which since renovation includes outdoor cafe-style dining areas and an easily walkable path through various stores, stalls and vendors outdoors and in. It’s right on the intersection with I-95 and Route 644 on the Springfield Interchange.

 

There’s plenty to do just in the mall itself. From shopping to dining to arcades - or all in one, with the recently opened Dave and Buster’s which combines a sports bar atmosphere with all the high-energy modern arcade games available. The mall is somewhat of a notorious historic piece. It was the stopover of Prince Charles and Princess Diana during the royal’s American tour. It has also seen a share of crimes in the early 2000s, though its reputation has rebounded after its renovation and new declaration. Now it’s a community hub for the greater Springfield area, and a great place to meet new people or old friends.

 

Staying in shape is easy, even for people who prefer the great indoors. The South Run Rec Center is just a short drive away on the Parkway and includes a 2-level fitness center, indoor swimming pool, gym equipment, and even an indoor synthetic grass field for sports during the rainy season - or the hot summer. A facility like that makes it fun to stay in shape. And if you end up going too hard and need some quick medical care, a MinuteClinic is within reach before dropping off at the Ionva Hospitals in North and West Springfield.

 

Going around Springfield you will find plenty of activity. The Flight Adventure Park is an indoor trampoline park where nearly every square foot is bouncy and springy enough to send folks flying. Lucky Duck MIniature Golf offers a fun and colorful version of Golf for those who want a break from the golf courses that surround Springfield all throughout Fairfax county. Springfield isn’t lacking in fun, nor does it lack in spirit, with The Northern Virginia Chorale giving worshiping renditions from the St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. And speaking of Church, the monumental St. Bernadette Cathlic Church has services every Sunday with activities every other day for its congregation.

 

After all that excitement, a good meal would really hit the spot. There’s plenty to choose from. Franchises and chains have made their impressions and are available at any time, but local eateries are things that can only be appreciated by real residents of the area. The Rolling Cooking Chinese bistro is just to the north, near Willie T’s Seafood Shack which offers up portions of fresh fish in a casual environment. Pizza aficionados can stop by &pizza for hip new takes on all kinds of flatbread creations.

Springfield is considered part of the greater D.C. Metro area, a vast interconnected series of cities and towns that run to and from the D.C. area, one of the busiest places in the country. Springfield is 15 miles from D.C., averaging 30 minutes on the I-395 through express lanes. Morning commutes could last a bit longer as many people living in or around Rolling Valley will likely be the kind of professionals with high earning careers. Rolling Valley is a great place to live, but not ideal for bringing work home.

 

Rolling Valley’s schools are among the best in the state, and competitive with one another in terms of grades and athletics. The West Springfield Elementary is just a few streets away from Rolling Valley Elementary, where most of the kids from the neighborhood will want to go. But Rolling Valley has only grown in size, one school isn’t enough for every kid to go to. From there they can move up to the West Springfield High School or explore the greater Fairfax districts for anything from public to private education.

 

Springfield’s association with the D.C. metro area has given rise to its own Metro lines. Bus stops frequently travel from Springfield throughout Fairfax and into D.C. along the interstates and the Fairfax Country Parkway. Just 10 minutes away is the Springfield Transportation Center, the hub for all transport in, around or out of the city, including connections to the Virginia Railway Express. Springfield is connected to D.C. by a Metrorail, the direct line that travels nonstop on a 41 minute journey to the Capital, no traffic or track exchanges required.

 

The median household income for the area is about $96,000. It’s way higher than the national average, because the job opportunities in and around Springfield are above the average quality job. It stands to reason that an above-average community would therefore match the higher-than-average cost of homes. The quality of life and community organization efforts help to pad those numbers out to a meaningful and comprehensive value. It’s not just paying for a house that adds value to Rolling Valley, it’s paying for a way of life that’s pleasant and peaceful.

 

Springfield has a growing climate of diversity thanks to inclusive and welcoming to people from all backgrounds. The common denominator is not race, but professional and family driven motivation to succeed. The crime rate is low, especially around Rolling Valley, which keeps things peaceful through excellent maintenance and a reliable neighborhood watch. The school systems are great, and emergency services are all close by so no emergency ever goes on for too long.

 

Rolling Valley is the place to live in Springfield. Or, it’s the best place to move out of, as the housing market has not seen a significant decline in many years. Houses gain value as more people continue to flock to the piece of peace set aside from the busy asphalt metro. It’s a place to come and relax, feel safe and experience life at a modest pace. Rolling Valley is still rolling uphill, growing and thriving for years to come.

A Little About Springfield

The history of the town comes from the expansion of another. Landowners from Alexandria constructed a saw and grist mill in 1800 where Springfield now sits. The mill was owned by James Keene (who Old Keene Mill Road is named after), and has since vanished except for the runs where the logs were processed.

 

Where there was business, there would inevitably be homes as communities grew around epicenters of new or developing land. Springfield grew itself over the next 40 years until it was founded and formally established in 1847. At this point, it had a new claim of fame: the Daingerfield Station. This was a station along the Orange and Alexandria railroad that bridged across the state and up into Maryland, and also served as a key local site during the American Civil War. After the war, it was converted to serving as Springfield’s first post office.

 

Springfield served mostly as a rail crossing and rural thoroughfare town for the mostly underdeveloped mid-Virginia towns until the 1940s. Springfield’s promising new rise was due to its proximity to the nation’s Capital, Washington D.C., and more specifically its proximity to the Henry SHirley Highway (I-95). Real estate developer Edward Carr was the first major player to subdivide the city’s landscape into suburban development, seeing it as an ideal place where rural surroundings could blend together with the growing metropolitan area.

 

It took some doing. Springfield’s population in 1950 was only 1,000 people. In ten years, it grew tenfold to 10,000, and then 25,000 by 1970. The suburban boom was real. Springfield found itself being subdivided into different areas - north and south, and then into further distinguished districts. The Springfield Mall (now the Town Center) opened in 1973 during the best time in history for mall openings which attracted retailers, customers, and attention to the formerly small town. More shopping centers came, expansion during the 80s was rapid.

 

During this massive push for prominence, the Rolling Valley neighborhood was founded as part of the subdivisions in 1960. By then it was clear there was a demand for living in the area. It was close enough to D.C. for powerful people to want to be nearby, but also far enough outside the city limits to still have a touch of nature and rural beauty. That combination attracted many high-earning professionals to the area who commuted in and out of Springfield, or struck out on their own to establish their own businesses locally. That same community driven success remains today as the area continues to grow.
