A three-bedroom townhouse-style condo in Lorton is under $395,000
Families in need of two or three bedrooms may be particularly challenged by high house prices in the DC area. While it’s easier to find a studio or one-bedroom condo under $400,000, it’s less common to find a single-family home, townhouse, or larger condo in that price range. It’s especially rare in the city and in suburban counties where house prices are higher, such as Fairfax County, Virginia. The median sale price for a home in Fairfax County was $695,000 in April, according to Bright MLS.
But persistent shoppers may find exceptions. For example, a gabled townhouse-style condo in Gunston at 8315 Green Heron Way, #22, Lorton, costs $394,900. Annual property taxes for this Fairfax County property are $3,993. Monthly condo fees are $350. Condominium fees include road maintenance, management, lawn care, garbage, water and two assigned parking spaces. The community has an exercise room and an outdoor swimming pool. Pets are allowed.
The Gables at Gunston is 800 meters from the village center of Gunston Corner, 1.8 km from Lorton Market and 2.7 km from Gunston Plaza. The Lorton Amtrak Station is 1 mile away and the Lorton Virginia Railway Express Station is 2 miles from the townhouse. Commuter routes such as Interstate 95 and Route 123 are also nearby.
