Loudoun County is home to many planned communities, and one of the more notable and popular ones is Brambleton. While it has a close-knit community feel, it also offers the energy and excitement of an urban space.
Homes to Suit a Range of Needs, Tastes and Budgets
Begun in 2001, Brambleton offers homes, condos, and town homes of all sizes, built by a variety of reputable builders over the years. Builders continue to add new homes to the mix, with all styles of town homes still being built by Miller & Smith, Knutson, Toll Brothers, and Van Metre. In fact, Brambleton has 6,400 homes built thus far and will have over 9,000 when development is finished. Many families have even “traded up” once or twice to larger homes while staying within this community they’ve come to love.
You’ll find all styles of homes within Brambleton, from modern to traditional and everything in between. Different “neighborhoods” within Brambleton each have a different feel. Some areas have been described as “surban,” offering industrial style 4-story town homes with lofts and rooftop terraces.
Everything You Need — All in One Place
The town center’s expanding retail and restaurant scene, including a movie theater, lends an urban vibe and serves as a central gathering place. If you’re looking for greener spaces, check out Legacy Park, a mini “Central Park” style area across from the town center. You’ll find swings and a playground for kids, plenty of spots for relaxing under a shady tree, and the perfect area for dog walking and greeting neighbors. Other parks are scattered throughout the neighborhood, and a new Dog Park just opened. There’s great anticipation surrounding the 257-acre Hansen Regional Park, due to be complete in the spring of 2022. It will offer multiple fields, baseball diamonds, equestrian facilities, a skate park, mountain bike trails, picnic areas and more.
Community Schools and Recreation Galore…
Brambleton is served by four elementary schools, two middle schools, and three high schools. Daycare centers, preschools, and tot lots dot the landscape, giving young families plenty of options to keep kids active prior to elementary school. If you’re an exercise enthusiast, you’ll love the 18+ miles of local walking/jogging trails that wind their way through the community, in addition to numerous pools, tennis courts, exercise stations, and the large Onelife Fitness gym. (Best of all, all buyers of new construction get a free one-year membership at the gym!) A regional golf course flanks the northern end of the community, and the adjacent Beaverdam Reservoir offers boating, fishing, hiking, and rowing opportunities.
You’ll never be bored in Brambleton. After all, you’re sure to enjoy at least a few of their 50+ events each year…like 5K races, a Farmer’s Market, a Santa tour, Comedy Night, Spring Yard Sale, Neighborhood Campout, and outings to theater events downtown.
Infrastructure, Amenities, and Transportation Make Life Convenient in Brambleton
The Brambleton Public Safety Fire & Rescue Station sits at the southern part of Brambleton, offering a degree of comfort. Future plans include more commercial development, an Educational/Medical Campus, and a Cultural Center. Of course, there’s already doctors’ offices, a Harris Teeter grocery store, Peet’s Coffee, 14 restaurants, and over 50 retailers. The biggest event to generate excitement over the past year was the opening of the 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art Brambleton Library (shown below), offering not just books and resources but meeting rooms, open spaces, events, a Makerspace lab, and even notary and passport services.
With so much right within Brambleton, you may find you don’t have to go elsewhere for much! (One local resident said, “Once you’re home, you’re home!”) But when you do venture out, you’ll find Brambleton’s proximity to major area thoroughfares super-convenient. Belmont Ridge Road, Ryan Road, Loudoun County Parkway, Route 50, and the Toll Road help you get around around Loudoun County with ease and assist with commutes east to Reston, Tysons, and Washington, DC. A future Silver Line Metro Stop is due to open in 2020 just to the northeast of Brambleton, offering another choice for area commuters. Currently, a neighborhood Park and Ride provides a great option for getting east to various existing Metro stops and locations like Roslyn, Crystal City, The Pentagon, and Washington, DC.
Catching domestic or international flights couldn’t be easier, either, with Dulles International Airport sitting just east of Brambleton. But rest assured, you’ll feel like you’re tucked in a quiet little oasis in Brambleton.
The Newest Addition: a 55+ Community Nestled in the Heart of Brambleton!

The Clubhouse functions as the central gathering place — boasting pools, a demo kitchen, theater, golf simulator, cafe and bars, game room, arts and crafts studio, and social gathering rooms.
