Their location is the feature of the Shirlington Crest townhomes that people enjoy the most. On the one hand, the properties are close to restaurants, shops, outdoor spaces, and other amenities. On the other hand, it is a peaceful neighborhood, with many properties sitting along quiet cul-de-sacs.
Due to the variations in the townhomes' layout and size, there are variations in the internal amenities and features. However, typical features include a laundry room, hardwood floors, and a fireplace in the living room. Many of the properties also feature an open-plan layout on the main living level.
Most of the properties have a garage, and some even have a double garage to park two vehicles. The garages are accessed at the rear of the properties. However, finding parking spaces on the roads in this neighborhood is not difficult, so visitors will have no problems parking.
There are flower beds in the front of the townhomes, and there are communal grounds to enjoy. Although the properties do not have rear yards, many of them boast a rooftop terrace where the residents can enjoy the fresh air and al fresco dining.
Within just minutes of leaving their homes, Shirlington Crest residents can catch a bus, as there are bus stops along South Four Mile Run Drive and Shirlington Road. Therefore, it is a convenient place to live for those who rely on public transport.
