Founded in 1757 as an offshoot of Fairfax County, Loudoun County has become a prized place to live.
Historic home of Susan Catherine Koerner Wright (Orville and Wilbur’s mother and their inspiration for all things mechanical), Loudoun County celebrates innovation like no other. Innovation like that in Ashburn, which is so full of data centers that it has been called “the bullseye of America’s internet.”
And in the heart of Loudoun County, there’s One Loudoun.
One Loudoun is a home and a lifestyle—a mixed-use community full of comforts, experiences, and opportunities.
Owning a home at The Townes at One Loudoun means you’re just right down the road from all the excitement and vibrance that One Loudoun has to offer.

And when you need to go further, those big roads—plus nearby Metro—will get you there. Dulles International Airport is just 3 miles away and Washington, D.C. is a mere 25 miles away. In fact, the entire D.C. Metro area is right outside your front door! This combination of major roads and public transport put everything north, south, east, and west within easily accessible reach.

And for bigger community and private events, no place is finer than The Barn at One Loudoun. Both an inside venue and an outside amphitheater, The Barn is a place for the whole community to come together. Live music, celebrations, and other events thrive at The Barn. This historical structure dating to 1875, was disassembled and preserved by Miller & Smith and a local timber frame preservation expert before being brought back to life as a modern tribute in One Loudoun.
It’s not all fun and games in One Loudoun and the surrounding Loudoun County. There’s also a lot of learning to do. Loudoun County is nexus of exemplary education in Northern Virginia and, for that matter, the entire country.
