Basically, it is an exclusive, gated community with very nice ammenities and a golf course designed by Arnold Palmer. It's very close to interstate 66 along route 15. Soon there will be a town center and hopital within a few miles of it. Currently, there is a typical (albeit somewhat upscale) strip mall outside the gates of the community that has a grocery store, dry cleaner, irish pub and all your other typical strip mall type stores. The community has all kinds of events for the residents. They range from dinners and wine tastings for the adults to weekly camps for the kids. The entire community is actually very big and has townhomes and single family homes that range in price from about $390k to well over a million.

I actually live right around the corner from Dominion Valley, and my family and I were looking to buy there at one point.

Default Haymarket

Do you recall if the community has mature trees that were salvaged?

Yes, it does have some mature trees left as well as some very nice views of the sunsets behind Bull Run Mountain.

We decided not to move there because we found another community that had a more open feel, consists of only single family homes, gave us more options in terms of commuting (I can be to 29, 66, 50 and numerous back roads in just a few minutes) and gave us more than a postage stamp sized lot. This neighborhood is also in an environmentally protected area, so I know that I really don't have to worry about traffic getting worse or any more mega-developments popping up on my side of Gainesville. We are also a relatively small neighborhood of about 250 homes and almost everyone seems to be friendly. I can't remember the last time someone drove, jogged or walked by us without waving or honking their horn to say hi.

Are they still building in the neighborhood that you chose?

No, they have been done for a few years now, but there are some homes for sale.

Thanks. If we decide not to build perhaps we'll meet you one day. My husband will be working in Gainesville.

I know people who live in that neighborhood. Homes from the 700's, beautiful setting with views of the Bull Run Mountains to the west, great schools right next store, north of 66 and the awful traffic in Gainesville. Do not move to Gainesville unless you like horrible traffic. Haymarket is a small little town but the areas just north of there have neighborhoods which were rated by Washingtonian Magazine as the finest in the Metropolitan Area. Toll brothers builders build high quality. Moving to Haymarket will be a good choice.

If you don't mind having a little land, you should check out Holly Ridge (also in North Gainesville). They have homes with 2+ acres starting about 700k.
