Myriad Opportunities in Prince William


After being identified a few years ago as one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation, Prince William County continues to attract businesses and residents at a fast pace. Builders, both small and large, continue to find land to develop into housing among the protected battlefields, forests and rivers.

Prince William County is well-known for its major developments along Interstate 95 in Woodbridge, Occoquan and Dale City. These days, however, a second major wave of development is occurring in another part of Prince William: along Interstate 66 into Manassas.

Builders are continuing to add subdivisions and planned communities in both areas of the county. While many local builders are constructing homes somewhere in Prince William, the most active builders include Richmond American, Ryan Homes, K. Hovnanian, Pulte and the Hylton Group, the developer of Dale City. Besides Dale City, the county has at least 17 more planned communities, and countless subdivisions dot the county.

In the western part of the county, near Manassas, Wellington is one of many communities under development. Established for more than six years, it has a community center, pool, tennis courts, shopping centers, a day care center and an elementary school.

Ryan Homes is offering extra-wide (22 feet) town homes here, with three bedrooms and three finished levels, priced from $109,990 for no garage, and from $119,990 with a garage.

Comstock Homes also has a town-house offering at Wellington, with homes priced from $118,900.

Single-family homes from Ryan at Wellington start at $145,900. Comstock Homes and P.C. Homes also are building single-family homes here, with prices starting at $177,900 for Comstock, and at $176,900 for P.C.

Down the road from Wellington is the Mayfair community, where Ryland is building five new styles of single-family homes, including a ranch house, with prices starting in the $170,000s.

Richmond American is building several developments in the area, including town homes at the Knolls at Bull Run, priced from the low $110,000s. More town homes are available from this builder at Belmont Station in Manassas Park, where the homes are base-priced from the $100,000s, and buyers can choose from options that include a walkout English basement, a garage, a fireplace and a breakfast nook.

Single-family homes are available from Richmond American at Blooms Crossing, where base prices start in the $160,000s. And the company offers luxurious single-family homes at the Great Oak development, each with four bedrooms, a spacious master suite, a gourmet kitchen, a two-car garage and a full basement. Prices start in the $180,000s. Similar homes, also base-priced in the $180,000s, are available from Richmond American at Kingsbrooke, a community closer to Gainesville.

Washington Homes is building luxury three-level town houses at Foxborough, a planned community near Gainesville. These homes are base-priced in the $120,000s and include garages.

Laing Homes is opening a residential community at Campbell's Trace in Manassas, where town homes, some with garages, are available from the $130,000s for 20-inch houses and from the $160,000s for 22-inch luxury homes.

Also in this area is Braemar, a community close to Manassas, with single-family homes and town houses available from Coscan Homes. Elegant three- to six-bedroom homes are base-priced at $171,990. Three-level, three-bedroom garage town homes start at $99,990.

For buyers looking for more luxury, several builders are working at Lake Manassas, a new development adjacent to the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, where the inaugural Presidents Cup was played.

Finished lots are available here for custom homes, with lot prices starting in the $70,000s. Winchester Homes is building here, with houses base-priced in the $200,000s. Homes are priced higher for other builders. …
