Does anyone know anything about Fairfax Station - is it a good neighborhood, what is the commute into DC like from there and what are the communities and amenities like?

Thanks in advance.

Fairfax Station is a rather high-end upscale residential area south of Fairfax City. It's still heavily wooded and dotted with mostly larger homes. Pretty much any house there will go for $750K or more, most often much more. There is not much else actually there. Commuting to DC would not be a lot of fun. You could try to drive into town, but there aren't any good options for doing that. You could drive into Burke and catch the VRE train. You could drive to Vienna or Springfield and catch the Metro trains. The latter two would be your best bets, I'd say...

Everything is close enough by...it's just not anywhere in Fairfax Station. There's a WalMart in Burke, if you count that as an amenity, and Fairfax City has an abundance of shopping and dining options. Fair Oaks Mall (Macy's, Sears, Penney, etc.) is just west of Fairfax City. Hop on the Fairfax County Parkway and you can be almost anywhere in the western county in relatively short order. So it's all around...you'd just have to spend some time in the car to get to it...
