Birchwood Commercial

We are pleased to share the architectural design for the first commercial/retail buildings that will be constructed along Loudoun County Parkway and Evergreen Mills Road. There will be 2 separate buildings connected by a walkway on the 2nd level. Miller Walker retail brokers are actively marketing this site that will be called Bram Quarter. As more details are made available, they will be shared with the community.  See information from the broker’s website here along with an article from a local source here.

Community Vision

The Developer’s vision for Birchwood has been to create a unique, refreshing 55+ neighborhood with a focus on healthy, stress-free living. Our desire is to break the mold of traditional 55+ communities with newly-designed home styles and on-trend amenities. A centrally located clubhouse serves as a social gathering hub for residents to engage in activities while connecting with new friends. Please view our brand new Vision Video here.

Birchwood Events in 2020

Life Reimagined Video Series Debuts

Birchwood resident, Jim Phillips, has created an uplifting new video series for our residents. As a realtor, author and life strategist, Jim shares unique and positive messages on how to Reimagine Your Life At 55. To view the Life Reimagined Video Series, please click here.

We hope you’ll find his videos inspirational! Our residents are already responding positively: “Thanks for posting Jim’s video. I plan to be moving into my home in Birchwood in the Fall, (built by Miller and Smith) and it was reassuring to hear his positive message.  He sounds like a resident I would enjoy knowing. It makes me feel more comfortable about my decision to move from my home of 45 years and embark on my new adventure in Birchwood.” — Cindy Vough

  • Reservoir Pavilion
  • Reservoir Shelters
  • Rental Boat Operation
  • Boardwalks
  • Boating Docks
  • Stream and Wetland Gardens
  • Reservoir Overlook
