Blooms Crossing is a beautiful, well-kept area w/one elementary school, Cougar, one middle school and one high school (both Manassas Park). There is only one SF home for sale right now at $334900. It has its own police department and is growing. There is an active adult/assisted living community in the area, childcare facility, and veterinarian right on Manassas Dr. The tax rate is on the high side at $1.19 per hundred of assessed value and that may have gone up recently. The community is on a limited access road called Manassas Drive with a golf course at the end. To choose between Centreville and Blooms Crossing would really depend on personal choice. Both are very nice areas but Fairfax County home values and prices are generally higher because of proximity to DC. I think Blooms Crossing has everything Centreville has except proximity and that might not matter depending on how close your job is. Hope this helps. I can be contacted for further conversation at 703/494-3000.
