Falls Church Area Luxury Real Estate

Generally speaking, luxury real estate in the Falls Church area refers to communities adjacent to but apart from the independent City of Falls Church. This region is somewhat amorphous geographically speaking. East Falls Church, for example, is in Arlington County, Virginia, while West Falls Church is in Fairfax County, Virginia. When browsing real estate listings in Falls Church, it is not uncommon to find those within the independent city plus those outside it, lumped together. It’s not entirely dissimilar to the independent City of Alexandria and the greater Alexandria area.

Regardless of whether your property search takes you to the 2.2 square mile city or neighborhoods just beyond those borders, Falls Church is an exciting real estate marketplace with numerous amenities, including shops, restaurants, lovely greenspaces, and commuter friendly roadways and public transit options.

The proximity to other parts of the Washington Metro region is also key, with Washington, DC, Arlington, and Alexandria close at hand. The greater Falls Church area is historic in nature, but continues to evolve, including highly attractive new custom home construction as well as a number of upscale townhomes and condo communities.

More About Falls Church Area, VA

The real estate market in Falls Church fits into a comfortably upscale category, not as astronomically priced as communities like Woodley Park in Washington, DC or Mclean in Fairfax County, yet still luxurious. There are still a number of older homes, including Colonial and Victorian farmhouse styles, and there are many newer residences as well. Interestingly, builders and architects who tear down existing properties or create new subdivisions in the Falls Church area, often stick to traditional styles that are in keeping with the region’s historic imprints. These new variations on Victorian, Craftsman, and Arts and Crafts styles, typically retain the steeply pitched gable roof signatures, while adding modern touches both inside and out. These can include oversized windows, open floorplans, and of course, gourmet kitchens. It’s also an area known for pride of ownership and beautiful landscaping.

Luxury real estate prices in the Falls Church area have recently ranged from the very high six figures to a ceiling of about $2.5 million, although those parameters are also subject to the whims of an ever-shifting marketplace. The region dates back to 17th century farmland and was the site of Civil War skirmishes. Modern day residential development increased rapidly throughout the 20th century and continues today with new pockets of upscale construction. East Falls Church and West Falls Church each have their own Metro stations, as well as their own shops, restaurants, and delightful greenspaces. Of course, Fairfax City itself is always a big draw, with its historic district, its Old Town Plaza, cinema, music clubs, and outstanding restaurants.
