Ashburn, Your Loudoun Hometown
residential planned community of Ashburn Farm is located on 1,274 acres in
Ashburn, Virginia, in Loudoun County. One of the more established planned
communities in Loudoun, the Ashburn Farm Partnership was created in 1986 and
construction began soon after. The
developers of Ashburn Farm, designed the community to blend with the natural
rolling terrain, so the community is blessed with winding boulevards and lots
of trees. Part of the historic Washington & Old Dominion Railroad trail
borders the neighborhood to the north. The first home was purchased in the
summer of 1988.
The majority of land on which Ashburn Farm lies was originally the Gray Dairy Farm, and a connection to this rural heritage is felt throughout the community. A windmill was salvaged and restored from the Gray Estate and now stands with the old "Ohio Buckeye" tree near the Association's offices and community center.
Ashburn Farm is a fully built out community of 3,844 homes, and roughly 12,000 residents. A variety of architectural styles, including patio homes, town homes, condominiums, and apartments comprise the neighborhood. The majority (1,806) are single-family residences, built in clusters to allow surrounding open space and trees to grace the area. In fact, 185 of Ashburn Farm's total acreage is reserved for open space, ponds, parks and recreational facilities, complete with over 28 miles of bike and exercise trails throughout the community. With this kind of access to nature, residents are able to feel connected to the land and its seasons, much as the original farm holders must have felt. When they need to shop, residents are just a short distance from 100,000 square feet of shopping at Ashburn Farm Village Center and 225,000 sq. feet at Ashburn Town Center. If this isn't enough, Dulles Town Center and the Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets are only a few miles away.

All year long, residents enjoy community events that bring everyone together.
