Suburban Luxury & Serenity

Great Falls

Serene and woodsy with extensive swaths of verdant greenspace, Great Falls is one of Fairfax County’s most notable locations for true luxury real estate. Located high above the Potomac River, this 26 square mile village regularly ranks at or near the top of America’s top earning places. The wealth of the community is certainly reflected in its homes, with supersized mansions and large lots of land. But despite the obvious grandeur of the properties, Great Falls possesses a small-town feel with local events, a weekly farmers market, and a true sense of community.

More About Great Falls, Virginia

Homes in Great Falls have recently been priced as high as $10 million, with a large number of sales in the $3,000,000 to $7,000,000 range. Custom designs, elegant floor plans, and expansive property lots are typical signatures of the local real estate market. Quiet cul-de-sacs, stone facades, and breathtaking landscaping are also par for the course. The community with a population of roughly 16,000, is large enough to support shops, restaurants, and schools, while still retaining its rural charm.

Great Falls is aptly named, with craggy cliffs descending to the Potomac River and a series of waterfalls descending through a gorge. During the late 1700s, George Washington led the efforts to tame the rushing waters through a series of locks and canals known as the Patowmack Canal. The 17-year odyssey to create a navigable passageway for trade and travel was only partially successful but did usher in engineering advances. Today, ruins and remnants of the canals can be viewed by visitors to Great Falls National Park. Other notable greenspaces in the area include Riverbend Park (and the Riverbend Golf and Country Club), Great Falls Grange, and Difficult Run Stream Valley Trail. The historic Turner Farm is another popular visitor destination, with playground, observatory, and equestrian facilities.

While this picturesque community with its rolling fields and stands of trees is known for its natural beauty, there are also the creature comforts of the Great Falls Village Centre, with shops, restaurants, ice cream, coffee, galleries, salons, dentistry, the farmers market, a cute gazebo, and events on the green. This is the heart of the village, located right off Georgetown Pike. There are more amenities throughout other parts of the spacious community, such as the Great Falls Swim and Tennis Club, schools, merchants, pubs and restaurants. Luxury home styles include Georgian, French Normandy, Mediterranean, Tudor, Arts and Crafts, and Contemporary, among others.
