Falls Church, VA Homes For Sale
Falls Church, Virginia is technically an independent city, even though it measures just 2.2 square miles with a population of 13,000 residents. Small yes, but loaded with great restaurants, events and night life, as well as a collection of cozy neighborhoods featuring some very impressive homes for sale. From small-town charm to city chic, this place has it all and has received a lot of national attention, including from CNN Money.
It should also be noted that Falls Church also refers to the greater surrounding area, in addition to the city portion.
The City of Falls Church dates back to early colonial farmers, with the name deriving from a church built along a tobacco road back in 1733. These days, real estate properties offer a true variety from antique houses to brand-new mixed-use condos for sale. Multifamily dwellings start off in the low six figures but climb quickly, including modern high-rises and some true luxury townhouses with all the requisite bells and whistles.
Prices for detached single-family homes for sale in Falls Church generally start off at around $500,000 and work their way up to $1.5 million. The architecture is widely varied—in addition to custom Colonial manors you’ll find charming old farmhouse styles, eclectic Victorians, Dutch Revivals, interesting Contemporary homes and a smorgasbord of properties advertised as “Craftsman” homes.
More About the Falls Church Real Estate Market
This latter category seems especially varied in Falls Church, including not only original Sears Roebuck kit homes but more recent structures inspired by some of the more obscure designs ever displayed in the company’s Modern Homes catalogue which was last published in 1940. While most people identify the generic “Craftsman” term with classic porch-front bungalows, there were in fact, 447 different models published over the years, including designs inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School styles.
In addition to the great homes and condos for sale, residents enjoy outdoor seasonal concerts and fairs, a Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, a host of independent coffee houses and eateries and a popular farmers market. Also worth noting is the State Theatre—a movie house dating to 1936 that now features live performances. Route 66 and the Capital Beltway are nearby, as are Metro stations in East and West Falls Church.
It should be noted that East Falls Church has been part of Arlington County since 1936 while West Falls Church refers to the greater Falls Church area in Fairfax County.
