Tucked away in the South East part of the Town of Vienna in Fairfax County is East Vienna Woods Subdivision. Much smaller than its big counterpart Vienna Woods since it only makes up 166 homes but it exudes the same charm that many Vienna neighborhoods boast. The neighborhood runs mainly along Branch Rd. and Echoles St including some of the surrounding streets as you can see by the map. Most of East Vienna Woods was originally build from 1956 to 1959 but newer homes have been built on empty lots through the years. In the most recent decade some of the original ramblers have been torn down to build more modern larger Colonial or Craftsman style homes. With Vienna lot prices increasing it can make financial sense to tear down rather than remodel the existing older home. There are many opportunities for buyers looking to build a dream home or buy an existing small rambler in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood like East Vienna Woods, contact me to visit the listing currently availability in Vienna with a REALTOR.
Branch Rd Tot LotThe beauty of East Vienna Woods is created by the parks that surround the neighborhood with its mature trees and nature trails. With the trails in Wildwood Park, the section of reserved land around Wolf Trap Creek, and the W & OD trail are available to enjoy nature. The Branch Rd Tot Lot is great for the family to walk to and enjoy all year round. The real gem of Northern Virginia is the Washington and Old Dominion (W & OD) trail that was originally a railroad that has been transformed to a 45 mile walking, running, cycling, and skating trail. A 32 mile gravel trail runs along part of the paved trail for horse back riding or off road bicycling. This is a true treasure in Northern Virginia and offers a great benefit to home owners in the East Vienna Woods neighborhood who have access to the trail in the community.
