Depends on the exact zip codes. But you can look it up yourself.

I'm looking for the Briar Woods high school district compared to the Robinson/Lake Braddock school district if that helps

Areas that serve both the Brair Woods and Robinson/Lake Braddock districts should be fine. As both are generally high performing schools. So any area them should be good esp. In the case of Robinson and Briar Woods.

Eastern Loudoun is a much more desirable location, just be careful and don't buy in a neighborhood that is 90% Indian. Say no to Rock Ridge High School!

Briar Woods is a good school with poor administration - quite bad, actually, but that will change. The area is booming.

Robinson neighborhoods are older, more minorities, so if that is what you are trying to avoid, think Loudoun.

It's really hard to beat the Culmore area...that is a really, really nice place to live. The houses are pricey but, totally worth it.

For the yellow fever: inside the beltway of Virginia (koreans/viets), rockville(chinese), or the opposite side of 495 in Maryland(filipinos). But if you want my suggestion, brown taco all the way.

If you are hung up on the ethnic demographics of your neighbors, then head out to Loudoun or points west. No point in going beyond and considering quality of schools, quality of homes, quality of neighborhoods, commuting time, etc.

Growing up in Fairfax/Burke/Springfield and working and living closer to Brambleton/Ashburn, I would say look for a nice place in Fairfax/Burke/Springfield based on the recommendations from other posts.

Drive around 28/Waxpool during rush hour and go to the Assburn/Brambleton area (go to dinner at Clyde's or something) and you will be introduced to a level of hell you have never seen before. In addition, Loudon county seems quick to develop these shitty McMansion neighborhoods, and slow to establish traffic lights, street lights, etc. so it makes the area seem barren and dreary. Another plus for the FFX area is you actually see trees that will absorb some of the wind gusts on shitty days. Driving around Assburn you see a sea of McMansions and nothing else.

I used to hate Burke because every other vehicle was a minivan, but that it pretty much the case with Assburn/Brambleton as well these days.

Indian engineers and Science and Math - coders, IT - computer science will move families into entire areas of Ashburn, and will not communicate outside their clicks, unless children are involved. But good for them a lot of them have bought their houses with cash! like Asians in the area.

Do you have a work at home job or flex schedule?

Things change in this area and Ashburn is not centrally located.

Northern Fairfax is better or West Springfield. Burke is good, but congested parking and townhouses are too close to single families. Its centrality and proximity to public transportation (VRE) is a big plus.

It really depends on your employment.

Let me get this straight...you think Loudoun needs MORE traffic/street lights?

And if you don't like the McMansion neighborhoods, why in the fuck did you move to Brambleton/Ashburn? Are you stupid?

To put this short I'd sum up the diffrences between Loudoun and Fairfax as the following.

Loudoun:

Pros:
Alot of craft breweries and other cool things to do on the weekend.
Ashburn/Brambleton and Leesburg areup and coming places/will be very interesting to see how they turn out in 10 or so years.
Save for Sterling Park and some of the shitty apartments in Leesburg everywhere is ether upper middle class or still rural (out west)
Alot less of the shitty type of diversity(ex. you will find alot less illegals and towelheads in Loudoun County) There is alot of other cultures here but it's much more say Indians, Asians, and Europeans compared to people from Central America or the Middle East.
Republican's still control the majority of the counties offices such as the BoS, sheriff, school board etc. The Loudoun County BoS actually knows how to say no to unjustified increases in the budget.

Cons:
HORRIBLE traffic during rushhour
Taxes are still surging past Fairfax county.
County politics are corrupt and dysfunctional. Same goes for the county government too.
Less amenities compared to Fairfax(no good shopping or anything like that)
NOT CENTRAL TO ANYTHING

Fairfax:

Pros:
Alot of amenties(Tysons Corner, Fair Oaks, Reston Towncenter etc)
Alot better devolped infasturucture compared to Loudoun and plenty of metro stops if thats your thing.
Lower tax rate then Loudoun(however with people like Kathy Smith and Dan Storock on tbe BoS who knows!)
FCPS is more estiblished and better recongized by colleges then Loudoun's counterpart.

Cons:
Divserity-Fairfax welcomes the illegals and terrorists with open arms. Juist make sure the house you are buying in Fairfax doesn't have 100 spics living next door.
The Fairfax School Board is dirving taxes through the roof and Fairfax county schools are less modern and more croweded then Loudoun's schools. Plus FCPS often have classes in dilpdated traliers and have less up to date text books and school materials. Plus the flood of ESL students are weighing the whole school system down in certain places.
Traffic STILL SUCKS.

I will be the first to admit-

Although I enjoy living in my quiet- upper class Fairfax neighborhood...

I kind of miss living on route 1. It was exciting, seeing the police come by to arrest some fool for doing something dumb outside (usually drunk in public or high or something). It was a live episode of "cops" every day.

The neighbors were a riot, simply hand them a beer and sit with them on the stoop and get fun stories of their past for HOURS. (they are always "just about to" go back to school or get a job- LOL!) I'd also get juicy gossip about the other neighbors (I kept it all to myself though!).

Although the kids were loud outside, they generally got quiet after 9pm. One would occasionally show up to my patio door (first floor), I'd simply say hi, hand them a bottle of water or a flavor-ice (those popsicle frozen juice things) and they'd be on their way and not throw their ball at my car or window and break it. Respect!

Here in this neighborhood, the most drama I will see is someone putting their trash to the curb before nightfall.

I am glad I moved away though, I no longer have to fear for my car being missing when I come outside in the morning, and my insurance rates dropped.

I feel bad for those that live there- but at least they can put a roof over their and their kid's heads so I will not judge!

That's why they call it CASHBURN. Because you need $$$$ to go out and do anything fun.

Sure, walks in the park or simply browsing at the stores is free- but you still spend the money on gas to get out of your maze of townhouses 6 streets back from the main road to get there. If you run out of milk, you have to drive 3 miles out of your neighborhood just to get to a 7-11.

This is why I chose a place within a 1.5 mile walk of 2 shopping centers with grocery stores. Sure I could have gotten a bigger, more modern place in Cashburn- but the extra cost of gas to drive everywhere would have ate up any extra money I saved- then again the same cashburn townhouse goes for the same 600k it does here in Unfairtax!!

Everyone chases a change of "consciousness" from time to time- which is why people drink and do drugs. Can't even afford to sit at home and smoke weed the price of that has gone up too since I'm not in the "hood" anymore! LOL.

I must be bored today LOL.

One more comparison- they say there is a "food desert" in the lower class neighborhoods (not too many stores, prices are higher for fresh veggies, etc).

Well- same thing in Loudoun, if you don't have a car to get to the wegmans/harris teeter/other upscale grocery store (where the prices are STILL high as they know it's a rich neighborhood and will gouge the customers for a profit)...you are JUST AS SHORT in getting food. Can't buy just a regular chicken, all their stuff is free-range grass-fed BS which costs way more per pound. Try to get a ham hock out or some collard greens out or even some goya products there LOL.


Also- No car (say yours broke down) and no regular 7-day-a week bus service past rush hour out there= no groceries- and possibly no job!. Plus it's not like they will put an Aldi's or Shopper's food in a place where the average house goes for over 1/2 million. They can't afford the land. Not even for a sheetz or wawa for cheaper gas, nope you pay Exxon that $2.29 when everyone else is paying $1.99 because we assume you are rich!


In the hood- you have a chinese carryout with a $4.95 lunch special (some chicken wings and mambo sauce with fried rice or fries or a sub and soda). If not, mcdonalds dollar menu it is. If not, rice and beans it is.

In Loudoun- best you can do is a grass fed free range beef hamburger for $10- and that's on the lunch menu, god help you if you come after 2pm to eat out! Try $15 MINIMUM a plate! For one of those artistic plates with literally 3 bites on them!

Well back to me being bored- wonder if the mail is here yet...

Previous posts vividly reminds me why I moved to Loudoun, Leesburg actually. It takes money and a car to live here, didn't know those 2 items were so hard to come by these days.

Plenty to do out here if you aren't waiting by the mailbox for your "paycheck" to arrive every week.

20-somethings who want to be close enough to Tyson's to go buy new outfit at the mall, go to some overpriced restaurant in Clarenden, pick up some molly at their boy's basement apartment in Arlington, hit the clubs in DC & get a DUI on the way home choose Fairfax.

40-somethings with regular middle management jobs, 2 incomes, 2 kids, more button down collared shirts than T-shirts and no remaining desire to do any of those things above ever again move to Brambleton hoping their kids won't end up junkies/like them by their junior year in HS.

Fairfax's infrastructure is aging rapidly and you can only do so many facelifts on 60 year old buildings that fall in between the age of well-built housing and the age of well-engineered housing so it's only going to look & feel older and older, minus any actual charm you'd find in say Old Town Alexandria BUT the upside is there's always a knew class of kids graduating from Mason that can't afford to live in Rosslyn but aren't boring enough to live in Ashburn so your resell value will hold out no matter what.

I'd rather be debt free (no credit card debt or car loans here!) with an almost-paid off townhouse (down to last 40k!) and paid off 5 year old Toyota in Fairfax County having graduated from NOVA and MASON debt free as well working an easy no-stress 9-5 paying a nice close-to-6 figure salary living young and wild and free...

...than be a 1/2 million in mortgage debt just to say "I live in Leesburg", luxury car loan debt to say "I drive a BMW" with the maintenance and premium gas and insurance that gets one there just the same as any other car, student loan debt just to say "I got a degree in underwater basket weaving from Harvard" when the local college would educate you the same, and stuck working some middle management job to feed my 2 bratty ass kids and the wife eating bon bons on the couch spending up all your money on Home Shopping Network and demanding to be taken out to eat every week and won't cook just to say "I have a wife and kids" but hey it's your life and your choices on who you choose to impress- if you're already married with kids why does it mean so much to you how big of a house you have or what car you drive???

this is correct, I fall in the middle of these 2 age groups. ;)

Fairfax has gotten "too big for its britches" and its sanctuary city status is not helping. Prince William had the right idea...


I also know I will make a killing for this house when I sell it, already have my eyes on some land out in the country and talking with builders. Let me get rid of this house pronto before the whole market crashes and the baby boomers all have to sell their houses since their 401k's no longer have value but that is another thread....I know we in the DC metro area will have a little more time due to the government jobs, but even that time is borrowed...


I won't be bored in the country, that's for sure! I have eaten at enough chain restaurants and shopped enough malls to satisfy me for the rest of my life. I am now ready to grow my own veggies and maybe even have a couple chickens around. Can't do that here in Fairfax. And for everything else, there's amazon prime and as long as I have internet and can catch a flight out if I want to go somewhere else but always come home to my little oasis in the countryside, I'm good. ;)

I grew up in Vienna, went to Madison HS in the 70's-80's, went to Mason for graduate school.....that said, I'd rather rub shit in my hair than live in Vienna now.

While there are plenty of people that fit your "model" above, there are also plenty who moved out here years ago that have no problem affording the mortgage, car payment (or lack thereof in our case) and don't give a damn what our neighbors think. You sound like you have your shit together, probably be moving out here when you get that TH paid off :)

If you want to live in Arlington/DC...I get it. But to argue that Burke/Springfield has got it all going on and Brambleton/Ashburn doesn't, well, that's just dumb.

I'd say that is wishful thinking. Burke towards Lorton is nice, but the Springfield area has become a shit hole. Brambleton and Ashburn are now the affluent areas with nice new homes and townhouses.

No comparison between Springfield and Ashburn.

Loudoun just plain sucks. It will age faster than Fairfax, and it will not age well. The areas around Leesburg (super-cheap cookie cutter neighborhoods) and South Riding will go to seed first, and eventually parts of Ashburn will follow.

I don't know what your "family values" are, OP, but we left Fairfax County for Loudoun last year after 25 years and three kids at Langley -- because of some of the very liberal policy decisions the FFX School Committee made, many of them over the protests of parents.

We are now in Briar Woods and very, very happy. Love the neighborhood and we all feel more comfortable here. Excellent teachers, involved parents, its all good.

Best of luck.
