More About the Lake Ridge Real Estate Market
This attractive community with hilly terrain and plenty of green space dates back to the Civil War era but owes its main period of residential growth to a development boom that began in the late 1960s and continued through the 1990s, slowing down since then. And, homes for sale aren’t limited to detached properties. There’s a nice selection of condos for sale as well, starting around $165,000 and climbing gradually. There’s plenty of roomy townhouses in the $200s and $300s.
Lake Ridge is known for its community spirit and outdoor activities. The hills appeal to mountain bikers and the Ridge Runners Club, and there’s plenty of parks and recreation, as well as youth sports, summer camps, seasonal events and numerous well-regarded schools.
If that’s not enough you can toss in two community centers, five public swimming pools, athletic fields and tennis courts and local boat ramps for the Occoquan River which feeds into the large nearby Occoquan Reservoir.
But apart from the local charm, parades, events and terrific restaurants, it’s the homes and condos for sale that have really caught the attention of buyers looking for affordable options during a time when real estate costs are skyrocketing. Here in Lake Ridge, you can find everything from modest cottage starter homes to custom built manors, all existing in a comfortable price range.
