We have had an extraordinary year so far and are grateful with the continued sales in Birchwood and look forward to welcoming our new homeowners! Below is an update on our latest news in Birchwood, Brambleton and Loudoun County.

NEW 3D Virtual Clubhouse Tours: If you can’t make it in person, feel free to take a tour “virtually” of our beautiful Clubhouse here, from the comfort and safety of your home.
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.
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.

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
- Boating Docks
- Stream and Wetland Gardens
- Reservoir Overlook
Future Hanson Regional Park Update: This new 250-acre park is located just minutes west of Birchwood on Creighton Road.
“The Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park project includes the design and construction of a new 257-acre regional park located on Evergreen Mills Road in Arcola, between the Brambleton and Willowsford communities.”
“Features of the park will include 17 lighted athletic fields, including two artificial turf fields and one cricket field; five ponds; the historic Lee-Hanson House; an event lodge and nature center; a skate plaza and disc golf course; a splash pad and playground with inclusive features and over 75 acres of passive recreational space. The park will be operated by the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services.”
“The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2022.”
