Whether looking to build a dream home or buy an existing small rambler in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, Vienna Woods Subdivision may be the solution. This is one of the largest neighborhoods in the Town of Vienna with over 1400 homes and one of the most eclectic. Vienna Woods is located in the south west section of the town close to the intersection of Nutley Street and Interstate 66. The majority of original homes in the subdivision were built over a span from 1952 until 1964 with a few homes have continued to be built on empty lots through the years. The phenomenon that has occurred a great deal over the past ten years is tarring down old homes to build new much larger custom homes in Vienna.
Vienna Woods neighborhood has many mature trees and landscaped yards which give it a beautiful look and relaxing feel when driving the streets. This subdivision of the Town of Vienna also has two small private clubs in the neighborhood with swimming pools and other recreation. Those homebuyers with children will find this enjoyable, but the only challenge is they have long waiting list to become members so contact them early. The first club is the Vienna Aquatic Club which is in the south west part of the Vienna Woods neighborhood. The club has events and party’s throughout the summer months but does not have many activities except pool activities. The second private club is the Vienna Woods Swim and Tennis Club which is a larger club with more activities. This club has a longer wait list at approximately 6 years, but you may be able to lease someone’s membership a few years sooner than that.
Meadow Lane Park Vienna VaThe Vienna Woods subdivision also has several parks that add to the beauty and charm to this part of Vienna, they are Southside Park, Cunningham Park, and Meadow Lane Park. Cunningham park is a small Fairfax County park just behind Cunningham Elementary School and has softball fields, soccer field and a tot lot. Southside Park is operated by the Town of Vienna and has been the site of several 4th of July firework shows. This 17 acre park also has several sport fields and a tot lot. The last of the parks is the Meadow Lane Park and is a joy for any young children. This small park packs a punch with its many slides, swings, and things for kids to climb. Some neighborhood families have left many small tricycles, bikes, and scooters for any children to play on while they visit this park. All of these parks add enjoyment to the residents and help foster strong community.
The public schools that service the Vienna Woods community are some of the best in the area. Fairfax County has an excellent school system but I do recommend to do research when looking to be in a specific school district. There are many aspects of what makes a great school and a good tool is my article, What Are The Best Schools in Northern VA. The public schools for Vienna Woods are below, check with the county to verify school districts for specific addresses since school district lines can change annually.
There are many homes in this community that are within walking distance to the Orange Line Metro Station on Nutley Street. This will allow some commuters to not have to worry about driving or parking with a leisurely stroll to the station. The Vienna Woods community is so large some residents may have a bit of a walk. Whichever way, being close to a metro station is always good if you have to commute into the city or not.
Buying a home in Vienna Woods or building a custom home affords many area amenities to live in style. The Town of Vienna has many events year round that residents can enjoy and plenty of restaurants and shopping. There is plenty of shopping available just a few miles away at Tysons Corner Center the 11th largest mall in the United States. Those who would like more upscale shopping Tysons Galleria (aka Tysons II) will fit that need perfectly.
