It was the icing on our cake. You could even call it the cherry on top. Although we were thrilled to find out that Brambleton made the list of the 50 top selling master-planned communities in the United States. What made it even sweeter was finding out that One Loudoun made the list, too. Developed by a real estate consulting firm, the rankings were based on 2013 net sales for all planned communities across the United States. Despite the tough economic climate in the DC Metro area with the impact of the government shutdown, demand remained strong for these new homes in Ashburn, VA and the proof is in the pudding.
Miller & Smith was one of the original builders in Brambleton and over ten years later, both of us are going strong. This community was designed for a plethora of amenities to keep residents busy and relishing in their home life. The vibrant Town Center has become the host for entertainment, shopping and dining.
Activities like concerts and even family campouts are hosted in the heart of this community. There’s also over 2,000 untouched acres with scenic parks, ponds and trails for plenty of outdoor fun. With a Sport & Health club, playgrounds, soccer, football, softball and baseball fields and tennis courts, Brambleton is an athlete’s dream. Families have schools, daycare centers and even planned worship sites available right in the community. In addition to the tremendous amenities the community has to offer, Miller & Smith’s new homes in Ashburn, VA also have won awards for the Best in design and architecture.
You’ll find luxurious and innovative townhome designs with modern exteriors and interior finishes. Single family homes with expansive great rooms, foodie kitchens and impressive master suites. Work and life, design and amenities. Miller & Smith and Brambleton truly offer the perfect balance.
It’s certainly no wonder that neighboring planned community, One Loudoun also in Ashburn, VA, developed by Miller & Smith is a partnership with NASH, also made the list. After all, you get culture, convenience, connectivity and coolness all wrapped in the pretty package called One Loudoun. There’s so much to do here now and planned for the near future. Specialty retail stores, a 4-star hotel, restaurants, bistros, bars and entertainment.
Earning accolades like the best movie theater in America by Entertainment Weekly, The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema thankfully calls One Loudoun home. Serving drinks, dinner, movies and events all under one roof, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is the perfect community amenity for neighbors of all ages. A Community Recreation center complete with pool, courts, fields and fitness and miles of paved pedestrian paths make this a very active community, as well.
Miller & Smith also builds amazing homes at One Loudoun that have a chic and urban vibe with an open layout and views to distinctive outdoor spaces. Top chef kitchens, spacious great rooms and the opportunity for both formal and casual entertaining make these homes as cool as the communities they live in.
