The secret is out about life in the 22191, with Woodbridge making Northern Virginia magazine’s 2016 list of “Best Places to Live.”
It used to be that the area south of Springfield along I-95 was not considered part of Northern Virginia. Or, at least, its residents considered it part of the region, but those closer to the Beltway did not. Now it is one of the hot markets for homebuyers as it offers housing options of all kinds—condos, townhomes and single-family homes—and is being anchored by the new Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center, sandwiched between I-95 and Route 1, and Potomac Mills Mall just across the highway.
Growth in this corridor has exploded over the past decade with numerous neighborhoods being built up in the southern stretch, including Port Potomac, Powell’s Landing, Eagles Pointe and revitalization efforts in the northern section along Route 1. The area is a great place for affordable housing options, according to Elizabeth McGuiness, and those along the eastern edge even get waterfront living and views of the Potomac River. The area houses many natural exploring sites such as the Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Featherstone National Wildlife Refuge and Leesylvania State Park—all along the waterfront. ~Northern Virginia Magazine, March 2016
