The Westwood Manor subdivision is conveniently located in the northeast part of the Town of Vienna, VA. The neighborhood partially surrounds the beautiful and exclusive Westwood Country Club with its tranquil 157 acres. This community has 158 single family detached homes that were mainly built from 1963 to 1967 in the retro split level style of the time. The lots are generally around a third of an acre but a few of the neighbors boast half acre lots. These things create a well maintained landscape throughout the neighborhood and along with the many mature trees keep the residents in touch with nature. As you can see by the picture this also generates many falling leaves in autumn but this is a small price to pay to relocate to such a beautiful neighborhood.

Those golfers looking to relocate to this subdivision should keep in mind the initiation fees to the private country club can run $70,000. A not so expensive outing would be a leisurely stroll to Foxstone Park and the trails it offers. Many may be somewhat familiar with this now famous park since it was the drop site for convicted FBI spy Robert Hanssen. Hanssen would drop packages of secret intelligence to be picked up by Russian intelligence in Foxstone Park. A great movie to watch that is based on this story was the 2007 film Breach.
