Waterfalls. Wilderness. Wows.
Great Falls residents enjoy a small, affluent suburban community in Fairfax County, VA with natural appeal thanks to its proximity to the Potomac and the fabled, fabulous Great Falls.
Homes in Great Falls feature wide-open spaces indoors and out. Tucked into two- to five-acre lots, the $1 million-plus homes are surrounded in plenty of privacy. Featured in our Curated Collections, many homes can boast multiple placements — particularly Waterviews, Palatial Proportions and Impressive Acreage.
Great Falls Park is a major attraction, overlooking the Great Falls of the Potomac River, for which the community and the park are named. River Bend County Park is another gathering area in Great Falls, as is the Village Green, which hosts community celebrations around Easter (Spring Festival, including an Egg Hunt), Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas (Tree Lighting), as well as concerts in the summer.
Great Falls students attend Great Falls Elementary School, Forestville Elementary School or Colvin Run Elementary School. These schools feed into James Fennimore Cooper Middle School, the feeder for Langley High School.
Restaurants in Great Falls include L’Auberge Chez Francois, Dante Ristorante, BRX American Bistro and several more ethnic eateries. There’s no shortage of shopping venues in nearby Tyson’s Corner — the largest shopping mall in the Baltimore-Washington area. Notable retailers include L.L.Bean, Lulu Lemon, Nordstrom and Sephora. Two neighboring upscale shopping centers include Tysons Galleria (Neiman Marcus, Saks, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Cartier, Prada) and Fairfax Square (Tiffany, Hermes).
