Only the ground units (units that have no neighbors underneath them) can have the wood floor.   If you are a buyer, please be aware that this rule will apply strictly.  See page 40 of the ByLaws: ” (j) Wall to wall carpeting and padding shall be maintained on all floor surfaces (excluding kitchens, closets, bathrooms and those areas with wood floors provided by Declarant) in Units located over other Units to adequately reduce transmission of sound between Units.”  

AC Unit Replacement
See the detailed instruction by clicking on here.  You need to contact the management (Ms. Shaquida Ano,;You can cc fairfield_house @ for approval for exact AC units that meet size regulation (AC replatement forms).  The dimension specs for ACs are:   

  • For all main level and middle level units – (average) 26”x26” and no more than 125 lbs.​
  • For all upper level units – no larger than 29”x29” and no more than 180 lbs.

The air conditioning units are located on the roof. The contractor will need a 12-ft ladder to reach the access panel to the roof.  Please make sure your contractor has a large enough ladder.  A crane is required to remove and replace the AC units.  The crane shall not block access to any portion of the community and create a fire hazard.  Residents must arrange for vehicles to be removed so that the crane can park in the parking slots.  (FYI: for the actual process of a contractor installing it and how to prep for it, there is a memo of how a resident did it.  Click here.)

Pet Rules and Registration
Residents may keep one dog (under 40 lbs) or cat and one bird within their unit. All pets need to be registered with FFH management. The corresponding Pet Fee is due by July 1st of each year in the amount of $25.00 per cat and $100 per dog.  Scroll down to find forms.  The pet rules and registration form can be downloaded by clicking here (“Fairfield House Policy Resolution 11-2 (Rules and Regulations Regarding Pets and Registration Form)”.  Send the form and a check to CMC (Attention Layton Wilson, 4840 Westfields Boulevard, Suite 300, Chantilly, VA 20151).

*Rule 11a: Cigarettes, cigars, etc. may NOT be disposed of or extinguished on any of the Common or Limited Areas in any manner other than in a proper receptacle. Violations of this rule will be reported to the Fairfax County Fire Marshall. Please think of your neighbors and dispose of cigarette butts in the proper container and not on any of the common ground or walkways.

Pet Walking

Please note that loud and excessive noise after 10 pm and before 8 am is in violation of the Fairfield House Rules and Regulations.  Authorities will be called for disturbances during these times.

*Porches and balconies should be free of clutter and in a good state of preservation. Please take time to check if your porch or balcony is in need of cleaning.
