Derin Glen is a small subdivision of 10 splendid homes located off of Fleet Drive in Alexandria. Built in 2002 and 2003, these brick-front Amherst and Bristol models feature 4-5 bedrooms and 2-car garages. No through traffic passes through the community. Amenities found here include common grounds with a gazebo and playground equipment. Due to its location in between the Kingstowne area and Springfield, it offers residents the best of both locales. This neighborhood is within just a few traffic lights to the Springfield Interchange (intersection of Interstates 495, 395 and 95) and the Fairfax County Parkway. The Franconia-Springfield Metro station featuring blue line trains is super-close as well. You will find Greyhound buses, Amtrak trains and a VRE station in the same facility. Both Fairfax Connector and Metro buses are readily available to take you to your destination. Whether you are going to Tyson’s Corner or downtown D.C., there is a straight-forward way to get there from this community.
