Local Real Estate
Just two miles south of Old Town Alexandria, this hilly and leafy neighborhood is a commuter’s dream. With winter view of the Potomac River and spacious lots, Marlan Forest is a highly-desired neighborhood. Built in the 1950s, Marlan Forest’s 67 homes are mostly three- and four-bedrooms. In 2019, homes generally sold in the $700K range.
Marlan Forest is home to an Independence Day parade and the very active Marlan Forest Garden Club, established in 1951.
A Fairfax County ice skating rink and swimming pool, and a marina are a five-minute walk from the neighborhood. Golfers can enjoy the beautiful Belle Haven Country club just five minutes away. The nearby Mount Vernon trail offers scenic walking and biking. Off the trail, residents can also explore Dyke Marsh, one of the largest remaining freshwater tidal wetlands in the DC area.
Marlan Forest residents can easily grab a fabulous pizza dinner at The Haven or Dishes of India or just pick up a bottle of wine at Unwined.
