Great Falls - A Neighborhood in Fairfax, VA At the northwestern-most section of Fairfax County, Great Falls offers opportunities to explore both nature and history.  Vast tracts of undeveloped or protected land, combined with the relatively large sizes of residential lots, make for its sparse population.  Residents prefer this part of Northern Virginia for its excellent public school system.  Great Falls is secluded yet convenient to Washington, DC. Great Falls is bounded on the north and east by the Potomac River, the south by Route 7, and the west by the Herndon County line.

The best thing about getting a gift from your child is the delight on their face when you open it. This weekend at Colvin Run Mill in Great Falls, Virginia, take your children to shop for gifts for you, friends and family. Volunteers will help them navigate the store and pick out just the right gift to make their face light up. I took my kids to this event when they were small and they loved it!

You've got a million dollars or more to spend and you're looking for the perfect home in Northern Virginia. You have several options: Buy a luxury penthouse condo with a million dollar view in the Rosslyn or Courthouse area of Arlington. Buy a riverfront townhouse in Old Town Alexandria. Buy an elegant mansion with enough space to lavishly entertain in McLean. Or, if you're really ready for that dream home, that "3rd house," and some room to spread out (i.e. land), head out to Great Falls, Virginia, where over 82% of the homes on the market are priced at $1 million or more, and 63% of them are on 2 acres or more of land. 82% of homes priced at $1 million or more!  With 174 Great Falls homes currently on the market, that gives you your choice of 144 properties.  (As a comparison, note th...

OK, so here is my new proposal to Uncle Sam, in an interest to keep the housing industry on the road to recovery let's provide an $8,000 Federal Housing Tax Credit to sellers! Don't get me wrong, I wasn't thrilled about the idea of the Tax Stimulus when it was introduced. I mean, did we not learn for our past mistakes about lending money to people who cannot afford to buy a home? But since Uncle Sam has decided to intervene on the buyers behalf, I say in for a penny, in for a pound, or in American colloquialism, in for $8,000 dollars. If the $8,000 was incentive to promote home sales and reduce "risk" then why are the buyers getting all the breaks? Let's remember that sellers too have taken a hit and a big one. The reduction in the home sale prices, the low interest rates and in some ca...

Great Falls National Park in Great Falls, Virginia has some of the best views in the area.  Rushing rapids are not what typically come to mind when thinking of the Potomac River, but you can see them for yourself here in these photos. Explore the over 800 acres of the park.  Hike, or walk, the numerous trails. Have a picnic with the family. There is also a tour of the Patowmack Canal, which entertwines with our early American history  The rocky slopes are great for the more adventurous at heart.  Get in with an experienced rapelling group and have a once in a lifetime experience.  I did it and couldn't  believe how much fun bouncing down the side of a rocky cliff could be.  And that's saying something coming from me.  I'm afraid of heights. There is no swimming in the river at Great Fal...

Great Falls, Virginia is home to the much loved Great Falls National Park, a treasure for locals in and visitors to the Washington D.C. area. Why is it that some of the local treasures in one's own backyard never get visited? I've lived in Washington DC for over 35 years and can hardly remember the last time I took the time to visit the museums, or took in the annual beauty of the Cherry Blossom Festival. I have a friend in New York who has yet to visit the Statue of Liberty (which is still on my list as well). Well, we bucked the trend this weekend by taking our out of town friends (the same previously mentioned New Yorkers) to Great Falls National Park in Great Falls, Virginia. And what a wonderful time it was. First of all, one could not have asked for nicer weather. We had atypical...

Another neighborhood is formed in Great Falls Virginia. As I drive down Rt 7 to hit the Dulles toll rd (Rt 267) I happen to notice a sign that invites me to see the model home for The Marquette built by Keswick homes. An exclusive new neighborhood that boasts multi room multi acre estates. Yesterday I decided to take a turn in and catch a glimpse as well as take a couple pictures for you to see the grandness of these estates. You can also find information about the project, including the footprint of this neighborhood, on their vary own website:  www.brookfieldwashington.com/marquette.aspx *the model home is behind this mansion.....While SOLD out for the moment definitely worth coming to take a look at Keswicks homes and the Great Falls area.
