Located on over 1200 acres in Centreville, Virginia Run is another of Northern Virginia's classic neighborhoods. When you enter the community the first thing you notice is the long white rail fence that runs down the main road in the community.
Reminisent of the fences lining properties in Virginia's horse country and with a community center designed after a large 18th century estate home. Surrounded by parkland and with an extensive trail system spread throughout the 1400 home community the entire feel is one of quiet elegance.
Started in 1987 the area was so popular that the builders couldn't keep up with the original demand. With the slow down of Northern Virginia real estate in the early 1990's some of the original builders packed up but other builders picked up the lots left behind and the main sections of the community were finished in 1995. At the beginning of 2000 the land located north of Virginia Run was ready to be developed and after deciding that a merger of the property into the Virginia Run Association made sense The Ridings of Virginia Run was established adding 50 estate homes to the association.
Virginia Run has had a few unfriendly brushes with Mother Nature. The worst was in 1999 when all of Centreville was declared a disaster area due to a huge hail storm that damaged almost every home in Virginia Run meaning new roofs and siding for almost every home in the neighborhood. In 1996 an F-2 tornado touched down in the Estates section of the neighborhood causing extensive damage to trees and some homes. However the neighborhood recovered from both of these events and has matured into a comfortable place to live.
This year homes are still selling at nice pace with 42 sales so far in 2007 as compared to 50 at the same point in time in 2006. Prices are down slightly but homes are still selling starting in the mid 500's to well over a million for estate homes in The Ridings of Virginia Run.
