I have lived in the FallsChurch/Annandale area for several years and
as a local real estate agent I am very familiar with all of the
sub-divisions in the area. One particular place really stands out and
that is the Sleepy Hollow Woods sub-division of Annandale.
Developed in 1959, the Sleepy Hollow Woods sub-division of Annandale
is a neighborhood of 377 homes located in the Mason District of Fairfax
County just off Sleepy Holllow Road and Columbia Pike. It’s a great
place to live and has lots to offer!
The Sweet Spot
Sleepy Hollow Woods sub-division is one of those sweet spot areas in
Northern Virginia because of it’s convenient location inside the
Beltway with easy access to 495, RT. 50 & 66 for quick commutes.
You’re only 6 miles to the Dunn Loring Metro Station, 8 miles from
Tyson’s Corner, 9 miles to Old Town and 11 miles to Reagan Airport.
There is easy access to golf courses, gyms, various types of restaurants
and many well kept parks.
My two favorite places in the area? The Falls Church Farmer’s Market
on Saturday mornings and JV’S Restaurant on 50 & Annandale which has
the best live blues anywhere in the region.
Residents of the Sleepy Hollow Woods sub-division have 3 schools
under the Fairfax County school system: Belvedere Elementary, Glasgow
Middle School and Stuart High School.
There are 3 types of homes in the Sleepy Hollow Woods sub-division
designed by the Dewberry & Davis Architects: Split levels, bi-levels
and 2 level ramblers with the majority of them built between 1959 and
1961. These 3 floor-plans offer great flexibility for homeowners and
provide for a great opportunity to expand, as many have in the
There are 4 model names: The Raleigh, The Wakefield, The Yorktown and
The Winchester. Original prices when new? The Yorktown ($24,999), The
Winchester ($24,490), The Raleigh ($23,990) and the Wakefield ($22,490).
The homes sit on varied lots. Some are nice and flat and some sit on
rear sloping lots with gentle elevations. Many of the homes even back up
to Holmes Run Valley Stream which can make for a picturesque back yard.
You can say properties have appreciated a bit since they originally
sold. Within the last 30 days, homes have sold for between $450,000 to
$650,000. If you are an original owner you could be sitting a good deal
