Yesterday I took a mini-vacation – I went about a mile from my home to take photos in Daventry. Late April, when the azaleas and dogwoods are blooming, is a great time to visit any Northern Virginia community, but Daventry is special, even on trash day. Everywhere I turned there were photo opps.

Daventry boasts variety of home styles. There are over 500 two-, three-, and four-bedroom colonial style town homes backing to woods, and most have garages. Over 200 elegant three-, four-, and five-bedroom detached homes are situated on gently rolling hills, surrounded by mature trees. Ramblewood at Daventry’s 160 one- and two-bedroom condominium units are convenient and affordable. Here is a selection of floor plans for Daventry’s homes:
Daventry’s common property includes walking paths that join an extensive network of paths owned by Fairfax County. On the east there is the Fairfax Cross-County Trail, which connects to Accotink Creek via a paved path running under Keene Mill Road. Other paths on the west side meander through Daventry’s homes. The community features a large outdoor swimming pool complex (with an award-winning Swim Team), lighted tennis courts and a multipurpose court, and four tot lots equipped with swing sets, slides, and climbing equipment for children. An elegantly decorated clubhouse is available for community and private events. The Daventry Homeowners Association actively and consistently pursues recreational, landscaping, safety and property appearance initiatives that both enhance residents’ quality of life and preserve community property values.
The Daventry area is served by West Springfield Elementary School, which is adjacent to the community, nearby Washington Irving Middle School and Robert E. Lee High School. Daventry parental support for all three schools is strong – every school function is well-attended by Daventry parents, many of whom are highly active in the schools’ PTAs.
Daventry offers easy access to the Springfield Metro Station, Virginia Railway Express, Interstates 95/395/495, and the Fairfax County Parkway. An official carpool staging area (slug line) servicing the Daventry-Pentagon route is located at the Keene Mill Road entrance to the community.Kim Hannemann, Real Estate Consultant/Realtor®, Samson Realty Cell: 703-861-9234 • Fax: 703-896-5055 • Email: KimTheAgent@gmail.com
