Just ten minutes south of Old Town is the Stratford Landing neighborhood, characterized by large yards, winding streets, and mature trees. Driving through its streets, you will find countless dog-walkers, runners, children playing, people enjoying the outdoors, and bikers traveling to the nearby Mount Vernon Trail.

Stratford Landing Real Estate

Stratford Landing, situated along Little Hunting Creek (a primary tributary for the Potomac River), is comprised of more than 700 homes, most built in the late 60s and 70s. Stratford Landing real estate styles include traditional colonials, split levels, charming Cape Cods, ramblers, and a few new construction homes. Some homes offer water views and private docks.

Stratford Landing Entertainment

The Stratford Recreation Association (SRA) events include an End of School Popsicle Party, Family Nights, Friday Night Happy Hours, and an annual Steak, Crab and Low Country Boil. Neighborhood events include a Halloween parade, Easter Egg Hunt, Holiday Home Decorating Contest and an annual creek cleanup day.

Stratford Landing Favorites

We love how community-focused this neighborhood is. The SRA runs the neighborhood pool and its social events, as well as the swim, dive and tennis teams. The Stratford Landing Citizens Association (SLCA) is a volunteer-led, membership organization, serving the community. It provides opportunities for neighbors to get to know other community members and work together to make the community better.
