Lorton, VA Homes For Sale

With a wide range of homes for sale, ranging from multimillion dollar waterfront mansions to entry-level condos, Lorton holds a wealth of possibilities for prospective real estate buyers. It is also a community with an unusually large percentage of undeveloped green space. Residents are hoping that doesn’t change, as those areas are home to all manner of wildlife, including the American bald eagle. 

Located in Fairfax County, Virginia, Lorton is a long oddly-shaped strip of land encompassing 12.5 square miles and home to some 30,000 residents. The southeastern portion sticks out into the Potomac River, surrounded by Belmont Bay, Occoquan Bay, Gunston Cove and Pohick Bay. The Occoquan River tributary extends up along the entire southwestern border of town. And while many of the more expensive homes for sale are located by the water, there are even more properties, including condos for sale, in inland neighborhoods. 

The community dates back to colonial days with the name coming from the Lorton Valley Post Office which opened for business in 1875. You can still find some old homes for sale, such as an old Victorian farmhouse with three bedrooms on seven acres of land that recently listed in “as is” condition for $1.7 million. That means you’ll have to spend a whole lot of money to fix the place up. Or, you could plunk down an extra million on a huge custom waterfront mansion with a dock and 18 acres of pristine land.
