June Excitement in Miller & Smith New-Home Communities

Posted on June 3, 2024 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

Warmer weather.

Pools opening.

Schools ending for the year, and kids filling up the playgrounds and enjoying the sun.

As the official start of summer quickly approaches, we wanted to highlight some of the many fun things you can do right outside your new Miller & Smith home without ever leaving your community.

Let’s explore!

Cascades at Embrey Mill

Cascades at Embrey Mill just blossoms with joy in June. This 55+ active adult section of a larger, thriving community offers so many wonderful adventures. Many will center on or start at the private Cascades Clubhouse. With an event kitchen, lounge area with fireplace, weight and yoga room, sundeck with outdoor grills, and pickleball and bocce ball courts (to name just a few of its wonderful amenities), the Cascades Clubhouse is a beacon to good times. You and your neighbors will spend many days battling it out on the courts, and many nights enjoying a freshly grilled meal under the stars.

But that’s not all Embrey Mill has to offer. You’ll also delight in exploring the 10-mile trail system that branches out through and connects the community. You’ll spy all sorts of local flora and fauna on these expeditions. These trails will also lead you to the 15+ parks and playgrounds, the two dog parks, and the community garden where freshly grown herbs and vegetables can be picked for free. In Embrey Mill, nature and green spaces are all around you, providing inspiration and rejuvenation at every turn.

There are two more places in Embrey Mill that are going to wow you and be destinations on your warm June days: the Embrey House and the Knight Meeting House. Both of these clubhouses have space for you and your friends to come together, but they also have other adventure-worthy features. Each has its own pool with lap lanes, zero-entry shallow ends, and waterslides! Two community pools with fun, resort-style features mean every day can be a day on the water, so to speak.

Plus, the Knight Meeting House has an event kitchen and meeting space perfect for June birthday parties, reunions, and more. And the Embrey House contains not only a fitness center, but also the community’s very own Grounds Bistro & Café for your culinary adventures. Seasonal menus and rotating specials will let your tastebuds have all sorts of delicious experiences.

All these opportunities are just outside your front door when you live in a new Miller & Smith home at Cascades at Embrey Mill.

Birchwood at Brambleton

Birchwood at Brambleton is another community where you don’t ever have to leave it to have wonderful June adventures. This award-winning 55+ community in award-winning Brambleton Is a fantastic backdrop to our award-winning homes.

Central to Birchwood at Brambleton is The Clubhouse. A hub where many adventures begin, The Clubhouse is part social club, part gathering spot, part activity center. It’s where you’ll go for a summer workout at the fitness center, a swim in the indoor pool, and a chance to relax and share stories with your neighbors.

Explore the community on trails that will take you everywhere from Lake Birchwood for catch-and-release fishing at the fishing pier to Bram Quarter, the up-and-coming retail center right in Birchwood!

And when you desire a little more, just venture out into greater Brambleton. There’s the always exciting shops, dining, and entertainment at Brambleton Town Center; Brambleton Regional Golf Course; Hanson Regional Park; and even more green spaces, trails, and pools. If you visited one amenity this community offers each day, you’d always have something new to do.

To get you ready for a fantastic summer adventure, we’re hosting Birchwood at Brambleton Summer Tours. Visit Miller & Smith at Birchwood at Brambleton, tour one of our four stunning model homes, and register for a chance to win a pair of Wolf Trap concert tickets (and a special Miller & Smith concert care package). If you’re lucky, you’ll not only find your new home, but also get to attend a concert by Clint Black, Daryl Hall + Elvis Costello, or Lyle Lovett!
