Papa’s World – over 55 community – reality

It started a little over a year ago –

there has long been rumors –

There would be a over 55 community built along the lake !

GOOD MORNING

The site work has been ongoing for the last 16 to 24 months –

Then – about a year ago – building started !

Walking through the woods

One of the trails we walk – was extended –

and now it took us directly to the new community

about one mile from our home.

Nearing the lake

We could watch from the trail the construction starting –

but we could not walk around the lake as our trail ended.

Then – they opened it up – with gravel – then black top !

Close to seeing the lake



The beginning of the lake –

The town houses already built

As we progressed along the path –

the new huge clubhouse comes into view

The club house

The club house has both a indoor and out door pools –

along with two pickle ball courts !

There are conference rooms – activity center –

and covered veranda’s

Fishing dock and indoor pool area

There are already several different houses built

There are single family homes –

Town houses – Condo’s and four story townhouses!

Viewing from chairs placed around the lake

Construction is everywhere –

and now we can walk around the entire lake

Adding miles to our already existing 15 miles of trails.

View before the dam

The new name is BIRCHWOOD – over 55 community –

Brambleton Va.

They will have their own HOA

Hoping you enjoyed our new walk –

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – where we live

We moved to NVA in 1999 – June to be exact – transferring within the company –

both of us – taking our years – pension- 401 K – vacations and knowledge –

after 32 years for me and 20 plus years for Sherry.

GOOD MORNING

We bought two houses –

moved twice – in 6 1/2 years in Fairfax Va.

Then – we found our home – in Brambleton Va. almost thirteen years ago.

Our new library in the town center

We moved into our home – in August – 2006 –

and have watched our little community grow and grow.

They actually built a new town called Brambleton –

and now are finishing the THIRD High School set to open in September!

Main street – Brambleton Va.

Watching all of this – being a part of it – is amazing !

We are a community that sits in the middle of the country –

once you arrive home –

you do not have to go back out into the crazy traffic of NVA.

And in two years or less – the METRO – Silver line – will be 3 1/2 miles away !

The construction of SEVEN more stops is 80 % done –

and will open a brand new line here !

We can hop on – go into D.C. or right to the airports –

everything will be connected !

View of half of Brambleton Town center

New four story town homes just completed –

and recently we have been walking the new trails around a huge lake – man made –

Of the new –

OVER 55 community being built just a half mile from our house.

That community is going to have it’s own retail center along with it’s own HOA !

OUR NEW COUNTY LIBRARY

The new four story library just opened a few months ago –

with a huge teen section where you see the windows on the second floor!

HANSON RECREATION PARK

Yesterday – it was announced that what is known as HANSON FARM –

Has been turned over to the county –

and next month – development will start on a 257 ACRE preserve !

Soccer fields ( grass)10 of them – 2 pro turf fields –

4 ball diamonds – 1 cricket field – multiple tennis and basketball courts.

FIVE LAKES – pavilion’s -picnic areas and tables and grills.

A park lodge – rest rooms – and the list goes on –

all to be completed in two years.

The farm house and outbuildings will be preserved as a historic site.

Tom and Sherry

This is but a glimpse of where we choose to live 13 years ago.

In the end of the development –

there will be an additional 5 to 10 miles of trails to the already 15 miles we have now.

We were very fortunate – we love our home –

(not the cold Winter )

Our roots are now here for the time being.

I hope this provides a look into the Country living in NVA!

Just another day in my life !

GOOD NIGHT
