Brambleton: The Most Progressive Community in Loudoun County and Northern Virginia

Brambleton

What makes Brambleton a progressive community?

A major part of what makes Brambleton progressive is how the management team works with each home builder – and listens to input from residents– to create new, innovative architectural designs, such as the “Yard in the Sky” concept with rooftop terraces in Downtown Brambleton. As a team, Brambleton watches for the latest kitchen, bath, basement and office space trends and works to give the necessary nods to the innovational ideas that our home buyers need and want. This collaboration is key to how Brambleton stays one step ahead, and we pride ourselves on doing so year after year. A large part of the Brambleton philosophy is a commitment to Loudoun County as a whole. We continuously strive to partner with local charities, parent groups, our community schools, town center retailers and restaurants, and to implement new ideas our residents bring to us. It’s a Brambleton priority to support Loudoun County residents and the local government.

What does the future hold for Brambleton?

The future of Brambleton is exciting!

Loudoun County will open a new library in Brambleton this year – a cutting-edge facility that is sure to be second to none that will support all of Loudoun County.

AhSo, a new restaurant in Brambleton, recently opened featuring fresh, local food paired with fine wine selections and specialty cocktails.

Our brand new 55+ Community, Birchwood at Brambleton, has opened, plus the residences of Downtown Brambleton will have its first families moving in soon. This variety of living options offers progressive opportunities for all generations to live close to one another.

Brambleton residents can look forward to the opening of a second high school, under construction and opening in Fall of 2019. In total we will have six schools!

You are a leader in the county as an environmentally responsible community. What does that mean?

Brambleton has developed Natural Resource areas throughout the community, including our Blue Bird Trail. Resident volunteers maintain and monitor this trail for the community, and you will see blue bird boxes along the many trails within Brambleton. These are considered to be a valued and protected environmental amenity. It’s one of our most loved amenities.

Brambleton’s Community Association incorporates environmentalism into day-to-day maintenance, using non-phosphorous fertilizers on the community’s common areas to protect against chemical pollution.

Association staff work to help protect Loudoun County’s overall environmental health by being involved with Keep Loudoun Beautiful and recently adopting the beautiful Beaverdam Reservoir area for clean-up projects and upkeep on a regular basis. Brambleton works with landscape materials and plants native to the region; ensuring these Virginia species are propagating naturally for decades to come.

The Brambleton Community Association even goes so far as to sweep and collect debris in the surrounding areas. Brambleton even has a “Geese Police” K9 service to help disperse the large flocks of localized Canada Geese; this reduces the amount of waste and nitrogen that the geese produce.

You are home to many community events, fairs and festivities, making Brambleton not only a great place to live but also to visit. What big events are planned for 2018?

Brambleton supports local charities with events throughout the year. The community believes in giving back whenever possible and through its own causes, as well as those of its builder community, it has succeeded in annually growing its support of local non-profit organizations. To name but a few, the following have benefitted in some way from Brambleton’s desire to give back – LoudounLyme, WomenGivingBack, HomeAid Northern Virginia, Emerging Scholars, HeroHomes Loudoun, Paytons Project, Stillbrave, Children’s National Medical Center, Capital Caring, Friends of Loudoun Mental Health, Generosity Feeds, LAWS, Step Sisters, Breast Cancer Research, the Nicholas Blanco Foundation and many, many more.

Through the developer, Brambleton Community Association, and with help from our homebuilders, Knutson, Miller & Smith, Van Metre and Winchester Homes, Brambleton supports the county by collaborating in their events whenever needed. The 2018 calendar of events is huge and there is something for everyone happening almost every month.
