Description

Smaller House, Bigger Life! Open every Sunday 2-4 or call Theresa for a private tour. These age-qualified cottage homes are, no question, the best value in new construction inside the beltway. The Railroad Cottages are the perfect downsizing alternative to multi-story condominiums and are as easy to care for. The low monthly dues cover landscaping, snow removal, exterior maintenance, common area and Common House maintenance, most utilities and insurance. Each cottage home has private outdoor space to the rear and side where residents may fence in for a pet or private garden. Natural light pours in through the large, energy efficient windows. The generous 9 ft. ceilings make the homes feel spacious. The main level has all you need including a large, beautiful kitchen, owners bedroom, powder room, and laundry. There are zero steps from your covered parking space, down the boardwalk, onto your beautiful front porch, into the home and even on into the zero-threshold walk-in owners shower. Along with being built with Universal Design principles, these homes will be certified EarthCraft Gold. Each home has its own highly energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, 2x6 construction and exceptional insulation. There will be solar on the carport to power a car charging station, common area lighting and all power needs of the Common House. Every aspect of The Railroad Cottages has been designed to create opportunities for interaction and neighborliness. The Common House is a wonderful resource for the residents. Have a casual drink with friends in the evenings or reserve the space for larger gatherings or events. The Common House will have a large entertainers kitchen, dining area with seating for 20 and a living space with sofas and a big screen tv. The Common House also has a guest bedroom and bathroom on the second level for overflow guests. In addition, this community building will have power backup so residents have a place to go during power outages to stay warm or cool, as the case may be. Every detail has been carefully planned and exquisitely executed. Situated on the Washington and Old Dominion Trail and only one block off of Broad St., these homes could not be better situated to take advantage of all of the new mixed-use developments in the immediate area. The tight-knit community of Falls Church City offers easy access to public transportation, shops, restaurants, entertainment and community events. Come see this unique and innovative little neighborhood and be a part of something truly unique.

Falls Church City

The City of Falls Church is an independent city nestled between Fairfax and Arlington County. Falls Church’s history dates back to the 17th century with the establishment of a colonial settlement. It takes its name from The Falls Church, which was established in 1732. Prior to western settlement, the area was home to members of either the Anacostan or Doeg chiefdoms.  

Through most of the 19th century, Falls Church remained a rural farming community. Tobacco, wheat, corn and other produce was grown in abundance and sold at area markets. In 1948, Falls Church became an independent city.

Quality of Life:

Frequently named one of CNN's top 100 places to live in the US, the City of Falls Church offers a unique environment that almost seamlessly blends rural and suburban ideals. Thickets of dense foliage buffer the sound of well-traveled thoroughfares allowing residents to live without distraction. Neighborhoods feature a wide selection of townhomes and single-family residences.

The citizens of Falls Church share a strong sense community. Harkening back to its rural past, there is a year-round farmers market that is held in the parking lot of City Hall every Saturday. Other events, like the Annual Memorial Day Parade, Tinner Hills Blues Festival, Summer Concerts in the Park and First Fridays, also contribute to the friendly, small town atmosphere. 

The city of Falls Church operates it's own highly rated school system. There are two elementary schools, one intermediate school and one high school. George Mason High School was the first Virginia school to offer the challenging International Baccalaureate (IB) program, which offers students the possibility of earning college credit while still in high school. George Mason students consistently score well above state and national averages on standardized tests, and the school's reputation for excellence is widely known and consistently cited in national publications. The city’s two elementary schools, Mt. Daniel and Thomas Jefferson have long been recognized as schools of excellence by the U.S. Department of Education and the Virginia Department of Education. Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School, opened in 2005, serves students in grades 5-7. The middle school offers a progressive, enriching, and differentiated curriculum that challenges students to pursue a wide variety of interests in an effort to help guide future academic and career goals. It has also been recognized as a school of excellence.

Getting Around:

The City of Falls Church is ideally located within the Capital Beltway. There are two metro stops at East and West Falls Church, which run on the Orange Line. Broad Street bisects the community, linking Falls Church to Tyson’s Corner in the west and Arlington and Alexandria to the east. Residents also have easy access to I-66.
