1,190 Apartments for rent in Floris, VA with Balconies
Floris was once known as Frying Pan, and still has a park named exactly that. Jumping out of the Frying Pan and into Floris doesn't explain the origin of the original name. There are two theories: miners, soldiers, or Native Americans left a frying pan in the area when leaving camp quickly, possibly in the 18th century. Or the shape of a water flow caused the name to be used. The mystery lives on!
With a population of just over 8,375 as of the 2010 census, Floris is a community in the greater Herndon, VA area, just 31 minutes from the nation's capitol. It is primarily known as a bedroom community for the Washington, D.C. area. See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Floris renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
