Hi
I am Planning to move Ashburn ans buy a 3000+ SFT Single family home with finished basement under 575K. The criteria I am looking is good schools, closer to 267 and shopping in a planned community. Any advise on what are my chances and what developments I can look is really appreciated. I do not commute currently but like access to highway ( Even toll is fine ) under 10 mins.

Well...we just sold our home in Ashburn Farm this summer. It was 2500sqft on two stories...about 3500sqft if you include the finished basement. We sold for $499K. (We had bought it in 2008 for $525K, so we took a loss) The Farm gives you access to Rt 7, Rt 28, and The Dulles Toll Road. (7 and 28 are awful. The toll road is great but you will pay about $4 each way everyday) I loved the Farm for it's mature trees, all the parks (dinosaur, trailside) and the 3 community pools (breezyhill, windmill, and I forget the others name...Golden Meadow?)
Brambleton will give you a newer feel and access to the toll road is good too. You will have the town center there which is nice for eating and going to the movies.
Broadlands is in between Farm and Brambleton and just as beautiful.
Ashburn Village is another area of Ashburn but it wasn't for my family. Although, we did like the sports complex there.
Good luck!

Thanks Twinmma, I really appreciate your post. How old are Ashburn farm houses ? I am not really handy so I kind of prefer homes younger than 10-12 years but like mature neighborhoods. Do you think Ashburn farm, Broadlands fits this criteria ?

I'm not completely sure, but I think most of those homes are about 20 years old. Other sections of Ashburn will be newer, but you might have to wait another 4-5 years for the trees to fully mature. When they build developments, they keep a fair amount of mature trees in the common areas and in the yards they plant a lot of saplings. As a result the youngest neighborhoods sometimes look a little bare for the first 5 years. It takes about 15-20 years for them to fully grow in.
