Woodmont, Woodbridge VA Custom Home Community

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections
Woodmont, Woodbridge VA is a unique subdivision. Since the primary entrance is on Smoketown Road in Lake Ridge it is not at all unusual for people to mistakenly consider it to be a part of Lake Ridge. There are 100 custom homes that are between 25 and 40 years old.
  • Lots range from 1/2 acre to 5 acres
  • Homes can have as little as 1,500 finished square feet up to 7,600 square feet
  • Woodmont is a very heavily wooded subdivision

COMMUTING

  • Express bus service to the Pentagon and Washington, DC is available in The Festival Shopping Center and at the entrance to Lake Ridge in the VDOT Commuter Lot
  • Carpools usually meet at the VDOT Commuter Lot at the entrance to Lake Ridge - see Omnimatch for more specific details
  • Slugging (some erroneously call it hitching a ride which it is) is a result of the need to use HOV lanes on the I-95 as much as possible. Commuters form a line at a designated Slug Line Stop closest to Woodmont - the VDOT Commuter at the Lake Ridge entrance. For example, a driver will pull up headed for the Pentagon, but needs one more passenger to qualify for HOV-3. The first person in line going to the Pentagon will join the others in the car and away they go. It's free commuting for the slugger and gives the driver availability to HOV lanes on I-95 - win win!!
  • Train The Virginia Railway Express Woodbridge Station with rail service to Springfield, Crystal City and Union Station in Washington, DC is approximately a 20 minute drive from Eoodmont, Woodbridge VA in the morning rush hour.

Karen, Nice job as usual. Interesting term slugging. That's usually either a felony or baseball term for a big-time hitter. If you venture far from home, better get a local to explain the lingo.

Karen, I've never heard of slugging.  We could use that more on our highways here.  Great post on promoting the community.

Hi Karen, I enjoyed your list of resources to go with Woodmont/Woodbridge.  It is obvious that commuting to Washington DC is important to your consumers and you have done a great job communicating how easy it is to get to work.  Washington DC is only one of two metropolitan areas I would ever consider living near and it is information like yours that make it very attractive to consider buying a home near Wash. DC. in your area.  Love that Metro system!

ps-love the term "slugging" and it sounds like a great system!

Karen,

I appreciate the examples of colonial architecture. While the examples are far more grand than the original homes built hundreds of years ago they still extend that heritage of timeless architecture of the region.
