Does anyone know of any housing developments in the Fredericksburg or Stafford area in the $350 - $400 K range that have a community pool and are not too far from public transportation?

Hi E&M! Have you looked into Idlewild? Right now there are some good deals to be had and I believe it is on the FRED route.

Lee's Hill is nice, it's a bit longer down Exit 126 though. But the VRE is real close and it's a nice area.

I'd also suggest Idlewild. The FRED bus route runs through the community, and takes residents from there straight to the VRE train station. (to head north to work) The FRED also runs to shopping and all over the place. Prices used to be way over $400k, but with the current market, there are some good deals to be had there.

When you mentioned public transportation, did you mean for around town (FRED), or for traveling up north (VRE)?

Default Fredericksburg & Stafford

Ideally, close to bus routes and VRE, if possible. Taking FRED to VRE is ok also.

Lee's Hill is really nice, Breezewood Forest, and Fox Point are really lovely subdivisions. They are pretty close to 95.

Try Lee's Parke. They start in the mid 300's and have a pool, tennis, walking trails, exercise facility, plans for a library to be built within, trash service, low dues, and plans for a new V.R.E. There is also the current VRE downtown. I would stay away from Idlewild, when we were looking we found that the schools were not very good and had a lot of violence. Plus it is a new community smack in the middle of a low income area. I live at Lee's and love it. There is no traffic in the morning getting onto i-95 but getting off there is. They do have plans for a new exit but nothing finalized yet.

Make sure you don't live in Fredericksburg City limits, because the taxes are quite different. Fredericksburg is located in Stafford County (higher taxes) than in Spotsylvania County. If you live in Fredericksburg City limits the prices of homes are ridiculous.

Default About Lee's Parke

Jenluvshomes - Is the FRED bus nearby that can take you to the VRE?
