I live in the Stone Ridge development down the street from the ball field and Minnieland. Yes it gets quite noisy here from the departing aircraft out of Dulles when they're climbing out to the west and then turning southbound right over Stone Ridge. The noise can wake you up in the morning when they start departing just before 6am and in the evening a heavy UPS or FEDX freighter departs after 11pm. The noise level varies considerably depending on which section of the development your house is built. I can say that we've become accustomed to the aircraft noise after living here for 4 years but I'm more concerned about the pollutants from the engines as they're climbing over your house under full power. This is why my family will probably relocate elsewhere in the next few months.

Just a truly horrible place to live. What you'll be doing is straining every brain cell you have to convince yourself that the stars you may have in your eyes over living "so close" to the nation's capital are worth more than enduring the ungodly traffic (you will learn to plan your entire life around the traffic, and it really isn't possible any more to find a reliable time of the day, or week, or month or year that the traffic isn't simply horrific), the huge population of surly, non-English-speaking non-citizens, and the ridiculously high cost of living in this, arguably the country's foremost example of grotesque urban sprawl and everything that means. It was once a nice place to live. It isn't any more, and it's hard to imagine that it ever will be again. Choose instead one of the thousands of still lovely, "undiscovered" communities throughout the heartland of this coutnry, where the quality of life you seek is still easy to find. ... more

I am a REALTOR and live in the heart of Glengariff...We are not in a noise zone meaning the average DBL is less than 65...It is incredibly quiet and serene, surrounded by Lake Whitehurst and The Norfolk Botanical Garden. The runway is well east of our neighborhoods and planes either take off or land from the North or South, generally depending on the wind speed and direction. We have the best of both worlds being so close and convenient to the Norfolk International Airport and yet strategically opposite the noise that you would expect. I know it "sounds" hard to believe but it's true...come visit our lovely neighborhood any time! ... more

That should be an interesting culture shock. I love West Springfield Elementary. Its rated 9.5 out of 10 on great schools and we can see why. Small classes with great teachers and if you live in the school district its an easy 5 minute walk to the school. You can jump on the parkway down to Ft Belvoir with a total trip time of around 15 minutes depending on the time of day. Take a look at if you want to learn more about the neighborhoods near Ft. Belvoir. Talk to you soon and hang ten. ... more

I've posted a few questions on here and Realtors tend to avoid directly answering any questions on the board.

The area is a mixed bag; I have been looking in this area too to buy a home. There is some crime in the area so you have to be careful. You really want to steer clear of anything on or near Route 1. There are some nice pockets like Hollin Hills, Belle Haven and Wilton Woods. ... more

The weather is a perfect charicature of how it should be. During the winter there is usually like two weeks where it snows like crazy, and other than that there is usually a few times beside that where there is light snowfall. The spring is mildly hot and the slightest bit humid. It's beutiful but, there is one complaint: there is a lot of pollen. Other than that the spring is overwhelmingly beautiful. Also there are HUGE thunderstorms during the spring, and honestly it's almost as great a feeling as when it's snowing. Now when summer turns the corner is the only time I'd ever complain. Have lived there for a total of six years and the hottest it ever got was 107° F, other than that usually the temperature's peak at it's highest is about 100°. The real problem during the summer is the humidity. Even if you aren't stressed you sweat like a pig all day. It's best just to chill in the basement when it gets like that. (no pun intended) Now the Fall may just be the climax of it all, the grand finale. The leaves millions of brilliant shades and at night it is the perfect temperature to go for a run with the dog. During the day it is the perfect temperature for football too.

Don't worry about the weather, in fact let the weather worry about you. Oh yeah and you know how i said the summer was terrible, well it just so turns out there are like 8 public pools in Woodbridge so don't worry about it.

Sherry Spinelli answered:

I have sold two townhouses on Squires Hill Drive, and yes it is a resident managed Home Owners Association. Are you a resident in the community? What type of information are you looking for? Please be in touch with me and I will provide you with the secretary/treasurer contact information. She just recently sent me the HOA documents for one of my sales. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks & regards, Sherry

Rental agreements are very specific as to what you can do in certain situations. Ensure you read it in detail and ask questions, because the worst thing you can do is assume.

Good Luck,

Of course we are in Charlottesville Virginia which is a relatively small town--40,000 in the city and 60,000+ in the county.
It does have a GREAT Downtown--walking mall.
