Gainesville Real Estate Information
Over the past decade, the growth in Gainesville Virginia has been phenomenal. I personally live in Gainesville and have witnessed this growth first hand. Gainesville is no longer an exit off of I66 on the way to Charlottesville Virginia. Gainesville is booming. New shopping opportunities, and dining adventures are available at the Virginia Gateway Center. National retail stores, such as Black and White Market, Chicos, J Crew, and Joseph A Bank, DSW Shoes, Target, and Great Gatherings have invested in Gainesville as the population explodes. There is a new IMAX Cinema and numerous great restaurants, such as Firebirds, Uncle Julios, BJ’s Brewhouse, Trummers Coffee & Wine Bar, Out of the Blue, and Bar Louie. Gainesville also boasts a Wegman’s Supermarket (my favorite place to shop). All this growth correlates to the housing expansion and the development of several resort styled amenity rich planned unit communities. Communities such as Lake Manassas, Wentworth Green, Piedmont, Parks at Piedmont, Virginia Oaks, Broad Run Oaks, Morris Farm, Madison Crescent, Piedmont South, Heritage Hunt, Hopewells Landing, Heathcoat Commons, Glenkirk Estates, Saranac (Camp Glenkirk), and Regency at Creekside.
Fun history fact, Gainesville Virginia was once a stagecoach horse changing station for riders on the Fauquier and Alexandria Turnpike. Gainesville was also a cattle shipping point and a strategic Civil War location abutting the Manassas Battlefield. The recent growth has also expanded the road system to create the bypass over the railroad crossing in Gainesville on Route 29. This railroad crossing would constantly tie up traffic along Route 29 and the new interchange is very welcome.
Gainesville Virginia is also a great destination for Resort Active Adult Living. Regency at Creekside and Heritage Hunt are both amenity rich active adult resort communities. In addition to the 55+ active adult communities, many of the resort communities offer main level master suites to accommodate those active adult families that prefer to live in a more traditional community.
