This week I am highlighting an older community in Ashburn known as Ashburn Village. If you are new to discovering Ashburn you should know that what we consider an older community only means that it has been around for more than 10 years. Ashburn Village was opened for development in 1987. The community is spread over 1500 acres with 5,000 housing units and over 15,000 residents!
Your first time driving in to the area, there is a high probability that Ashburn Village was the first neighborhood you saw. You noticed the large sign and huge flags off of route 7 (hence the picture at the top).
Ashburn Village contains some of the most diverse living options in the area. It offers apartments, condos (Lakeshore), Townhomes, Single Family Homes of all sizes, and a 55+ community. Many of the residents back to water.
Elementary: Ashburn Elementary School, Dominion Trail Elementary School
Middle: Farmwell Station Middle School
High School: (Just South of Ashburn Village) Broad Run High School
What sets Ashburn Village apart from other communities is that it offers the best amenities around. Ashburn Village has four recreation centers, four pools (1 indoor), 4 large ponds, and extensive walking trails throughout the community.
What Ashburn Village offers that no other community in the area can compete with is the Ashburn Village Sports Pavilion. This is the communities largest recreation center with a full size gym, work out facility, on-site nursery, racquetball courts, indoor pool, weight rooms, seasonally enclosed tennis courts, and fitness classes being taught. It is one of Virginia’s largest community-based recreation facilities.
This is all included in the price of your monthly HOA which runs around $100 depending where you live in the Village. If you have never seen the Ashburn Village Sports Pavilion I encourage you to take a tour. You can pay to use the facilities if you are not a resident.
Ashburn Village has a large and well kept community shopping center with the staple store being Giant. The shopping also includes an aray of restaurants from Indian to fast food. You will also find the local Dairy Queen, Blockbuster, Starbucks, Hallmark, UPS, Ashburn Tire and Auto, the dry cleaners, etc…
On the north side of the Village now called Ashbrook Commons, there is a Harris Teeter shopping center. To the direct south of the village you will find the Bloom shopping center.
