Falls Church City, Luxury Real Estate

For the sake of this particular article, we will focus on the city, with a few additional nods to the region itself. With a geographic footprint of only about 2.2 square miles and some 14,500 residents, Falls Church continues to grow and evolve. City planners and leaders, however, are conscious of the need for sustainable growth, preserving the community’s unique charm and character.

Those searching for luxury real estate that is not necessarily of the gargantuan mega-mansion variety might do well to consider Falls Church. The earmarks of comfort and luxury are still present but with a more traditional and less ostentatious vibe. There is a charming blend of historic farmhouse styles along with more contemporary forms. But even newer custom homes often hew toward variations on Craftsman or Arts and Crafts designs, with gabled roofs and clapboard siding.

You’ll also find Colonial Revival and Dutch Revival styles, some lovely old Queen Annes, bungalows, and even some striking modernist builds from well-known architects. The overall impression is one of tasteful affluence, in keeping with the city’s reputation as a smart, inside-the-beltway residential community with a close proximity to urban amenities.

It’s a place that has seen a lot, and it has also evolved over time, all while retaining a true authenticity.
