I just wanted anyone's thoughts on Eastway Park/Sheffield Park area. I now live in Chantilly (been there several years) and I was considering cashing out and moving over to Eastyway/Sheffield Park. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Chantilly is a better location, I'd stay there if you can.

Default Eastway Park Neighborhood

I am a lifelong resident of Eastway Park and I love it. I don't think it gets the respect it deserves. It is an established neighborhood, clean, and even though the locale is close to Central Ave., the neighborhood is strong and neighbors watch out for each other. On the downside, there are more rental properties than desired and you will find that most of the undesirable rentals are in Winterfield which backs up to Sheffield Park. Some homes have been flipped and more executives and families are moving in. It's a good sign to see people out walking and jogging in the neighborhood at all times. Most homes that go on the market in Eastway/Sheffield sell within 1 week at the most...some even before listing.

I was looking in the MLS tonight and most of the homes for sale in Sheffield Park were preceded by the statement that it is a HOT neighborhood. It's main weakness is its school assignments.

Sheffield Park is a good investment, like Chantilly was when you bought. It depends on what you are looking for in a neighborhood. Do you want to walk to businesses? If so Chantilly is your neighborhood. Do you want a nice quiet neighborhood? Both? Are you purely looking to cash out your current investment and start a new one? Then now is good time.

Thanks for the response Kari. I'm really looking to cash out and start a new investment. I love my neighborhood but I think with my sq. footage we are starting to top out in price/profit. I wonder if Sheffield is going to take off like Chantilly did. I know now is the time to buy. I just do not want to sell myself short. I have a friend that lives in there now and they seem to like it. I also looked at Merry Oaks, but it is a little more expensive over there.

Not an expert or anything, but it seems to me you are already in the most desirable of the 3 neighborhoods (Chantilly) and stand to see the most appreciation overall for that investment now or 10 years from now - so why would you sell just to go buy in another area that will not give you the return Chantilly will??

Default a little late

but i just wanted to post my two cents. I live in this neighborhood, and I love it. I have friends in Chantilly and don't get me wrong, its nice there, but I honestly feel more safe in my area. Like someone else said, neighbors watch out for each other, but to be honest I've never ever felt threated or unsafe at all in my home. And its a great central location.
