The times you quoted...are those rush hour or pre rush hr...what time does it start to get busy?
haha. You are not going to like this answer. The roads start getting bad at 6am to 1030pm. On the way back from 230pm to 7pm is bad. This is on a good day with no rain/snow/sunny eyes/wrecks. I cannot stress enough the importance of the VRE to your future weekly commute.

When I was working in Falls Church I was leaving just before 7am to arrive at 8am. However, if anything went wrong I'd arrive well after 8am. The longer your commute the greater likelihood you'll have some sort of traffic issue in front of you.

Now, working in Chantilly, I leave at 7:30-7:40am-ish to arrive at 8am. On good days I can get to work in 20 mins. The worst of days I still manage 45 mins generally... and that's with the construction going on with the I66/Rt29 intersection in Gainesville (or the evening 4 into 2 lane change coming into Gainesville on I66W)

I live in Bristow and love it. We like it because it is quiet and far enough away from the "rat race" feel.
Holly Ridge (at Lawnville) is really nice. (I am not sure if it is the same thing that people on here are talking about.) I go to a stable located in the back of the community and have seen the homes. They are really nice and on good size lots. It seems very quite. The stable used to be an old carriage stable. It has an old mansion type home on the property with a cute little stone house behind it. The barns are white. I like it there. If we need that much room and were looking to buy I would drag the hubbie there!

From someone who lives in Gainesville, how nice that your husband will not have to be commuting. We love it here. Have you also looked into Lake Manassas? It's a community that is gated and right off of the main highway. There is an upscale grocery store very close. Lots of walking trails and of course, golf. And if you have small children it's great. A nearby day care, a playground, and a swim team.

Welcome to the forum! In the top left corner of every post, the posting date is listed. This thread is ten years old. I'm sure they have found a house by now!
