For nearly a year, residents have been driving the stretch of Highway 15 from Madison Crescent in Gainesville to downtown Haymarket – enduring road-widening construction to make way for Virginia Crossing. The 160-acre community brings about 200 new single-family homes with delivery dates as early […]

As we look past the naked trees and bland winter palette eagerly anticipating Spring, nothing seems to be experiencing quite the growth and activity that we’re seeing in the new construction housing market. I’m working with a client currently in negotiations and the builder has […]

Just for fun, type in “luxury homes off Braddock Road” into your Google search. Home buying sites will generate a variety of featured properties. Typical two or three bed renovations in Old Town Alexandria, to new construction three and four-level townhomes with open floor plans. […]
A couple years ago, my family and I made a move west to Prince William County, landing in the small town of Haymarket. As a Buyer Agent, I’ve cautioned clients against considering this area as I cannot overstate how difficult the traffic can be. On […]
Several years ago I decided to start a blog called Tuesdays On The Town. My goal was to design a day spent discovering areas in proximity to new construction developments. I’d grab a coffee, meet at the sales center and talk with builder reps about what they were planning, how long it would take to finish and what they had immediately available. Then I’d have an Instagram-fabulous lunch and highlight our favorite parts of the up and coming zip code. I posted a dozen or so articles before we were so busy, we couldn’t keep up with it.
Recently I’ve had a few clients considering new construction in Ashburn, Fairfax, and Woodbridge – I thought it might be time to reignite the idea since I’ll be working on a few new construction contracts and I’m looking forward to sharing the process.
The City of Fairfax has become such a desirable location in recent years, some buyers will have noticed that the area comes with its own MLS code. When looking at MLS numbers, Fairfax County properties will be identified as FX whereas the City of Fairfax will start with FC. The area is perfectly situated around downtown with third wave coffee shops, live music (and trivia night!) and a rather well-known university where you can catch a concert or basketball game – all walkable by design. Naturally, the demand prompts newer housing options.
Pulte Homes is one of many active builders in the area and Mount Vineyard, being about 75% completed is just three-quarters of a mile from downtown on the corner of Oak and Main Streets. A picturesque blend of 22′ and 24′ wide garage townhomes, two-level condos and two elevator condo buildings make up 132 new properties.
When I visited last, the Devonshire Crest model had just been closed. The last dozen or so remaining lots will all feature the Edinburgh, which is the model now available to tour. The 24′ wide two car garage townhouse is four finished levels with up to 5 bedrooms and 4 and a half bathrooms, just over 3,000 square feet. Prices starting at $729,990 and HOA fees at $114 a month, to include individual homeowner lawn maintenance, snow and trash removal, recycling and the community amenities – a large courtyard and walking path.
Also available to tour are the elevator condos, known as The Flats. Six floorplans ranging from 1,208 square feet to 1,615 square feet and priced from $439,900 to $539,900 and condo fees at $337 a month to include secure building entrance, underground parking and elevator service.
If there’s a new construction development you’d like us to review, post it below. My team and I will head out once a week to discover and report back on new and exciting options!
There appears to be a Bermuda Triangle of zip codes east of Highway 28 between Dulles Access Road to the north and Highway 50 to the south. If you’re coming from Reston, you probably refer to this area as Herndon. If you’re coming from the […]
We’d be surprised if you hadn’t heard about One Loudoun in Ashburn. An oasis of luxury living surrounded by an impressive list of amenities, the community is not even fifteen minutes from Dulles Airport and routes 28, 66, and the 267 Toll Road. You might think […]
