Prepared by John Thompson, Samson Realty
The subject is located within Fairfax County at 2835
Cedar Lane Vienna VA. The property is a rectangular parcel consisting of 43,560
sqft. (1 Ac.) improved by a 1750 finished sqft. single family residence
constructed in 1951. The property is well landscaped and includes a variety of
mature shrubbery and trees. At the rear of the property there is an in-ground
swimming pool within a fenced enclosure.
Location: Fairfax County's Providence (Magisterial) District, represented by
Linda Q. Smyth. The property is located within the County's Comprehensive
Plan Vienna Planning, District Area II, Sector V1-Lee Community Planning Sector.
The Comprehensive Plan calls for a 1-2 DU/AC area development but that
designation is subject to either R-1 or R-2 zoning code restrictions for lot
size, setbacks and road frontage ... among other development decision-factors.
The primary limitation of the subject property as a candidate for a 2-Lot
Subdivision is the approximate 187 +/- feet of road frontage on Cedar Lane. R-1
zoning calls for 36,000 sqft. lots with 150 feet of road frontage and R-2 zoning
calls for 15,000 sqft. lots with 100 feet of road frontage.

The subject is conveniently located on Cedar
Lane between the METRO Orange Line's Dunn Loring Station and Vienna Station.
Quick access is available to secondary road systems, major State Highways (Rt.
29 & Rt. 50) and Interstate Highways I-66 and I-495. A wide variety of shopping,
services, dining and entertainment is readily available in all compass
directions. The property is served by good schools and county
services. 2835 Cedar Lane is an excellent location!
The subject is in an established neighborhood of
single family homes zoned R-1. Facing west to Cedar Lane and the R-1 zoned Lee
Manor Subdivision with detached homes on 1/3 to 1/2 acre parcels. The property
backs to the 10-Lot Merrifield View Subdivision developed in 1971 as Schafflind
Court and zoned R-3. Commercial uses and higher residential densities are to the east
in the Merrifield Planning District and to the south along Lee Highway both
towards Falls Church and Fairfax City.
While the immediate area has become very much
urbanized during the past couple decades, the subject still retains a
traditional residential neighborhood look and feel.
Highest & Best Use
Future: Assemblage with Adjoining
The future highest & best use of the subject property would result from a rezoning to
R-2* or with assemblage of adjoining properties to R-2 or R-3 if possible.
The highest & best use of the subject property could be achieved with the
cooperation of either or both adjoining properties. The additional land sqft.
and most importantly the additional road frontage could maximize the rezoning
density and result in additional development and resale value.
Present: Residential Resale or Tear Down
At present, the highest and best use of the property is as a detached dwelling
unit or a residential "tear down" property for the construction of a new
"Luxury Estate Home on 1 Acre".
