The Village of Mount Air is located just off Telegraph Road in Lorton. While this 182-unit townhome community has a Lorton mailing address, it is just a few minutes away from the Kingstowne area of Alexandria. This subdivision is only minutes to both the Telegraph and Tulley Gates of Fort Belvoir, making this a perfect location for anyone stationed there. Both garage and non-garage townhomes are available with square footage ranging from 1,560 to 2,280. The Bedford, Alexander and Chesapeake models are the most common ones found here. These homes were constructed between 1985 and 1989. Streets in the Village of Mount Air are Blue Bird Woods Court, Cardinal Woods Court, Enochs Drive, Kernon Court, Mockingbird Woods Court, Red Bird Woods Court and Shirley Woods Court. All community members enjoy the exclusive use of the many amenities: basketball courts, tennis courts, tot-lots and common grounds. Twice weekly trash pick-up is included in the HOA fee. The homeowners association maintains a community website with lots of pertinent information for residents such as news articles, community calendar, and a history of Mount Air. It also sponsors several community-wide events such as the Spring Festival and Easter Egg Hunt and Fall Festival. Students attend Island Creek Elementary and Hayfield Secondary Schools.
