We're looking at a house in the Falls Church part of Fairfax County and would like any comments you might have about quality of life there, why you would buy/wouldn't buy, etc. Thanks!

I know about that area. Thumbs up. Falls Church is nice, you're near the bike path. Metro's not too far. Not much bad to say about it. You're north of the more dodgy part of town (Seven Corners). Nice area.

I agree. The area around Shreve Road and Westwood Park is a nice older wooded area. It's close to the W&OD trail, Falls Plaza, WFC Metro. If you want to avoid traffic on Route 7, you can take Lee Highway to Arlington and DC. The only negative I've heard is some people wouldn't like being near the power lines near Shreve and the W&OD trail.

Thank you, dlumpen and DunnLauren! Yes, those power lines worry me a bit. Don't know if I can trust the Realtor's statement that they pose no risk. Anyone else?

I don't know if the power lines are a risk or not, but they run near and behind my neighborhood of expensive homes, too. I like to think that people wouldn't pay that much to live here if the power lines were really that bad, but that may be wishful thinking
