Great 55 and Over Communities in Western Prince William County
If you’re 55 or over and looking for your next home, Western Prince William County has many options. Two great communities are Dunbarton in Bristow and Heritage Hunt in Gainesville.
At each of these communities, being retired doesn’t mean being bored – they offer local attractions, like historic Manassas or, a little into the mountains, Skyline Drive. So if you enjoy hiking, nature, canoeing or learning about the area’s rich history, you’re in luck. Dunbarton and Heritage Hunt also offer easy access to I-66 to get you to D.C. and other Metro areas. The Manassas line of the VRE and local commuter bus are available if you prefer to let someone else do the driving. Restaurants and shopping are plentiful in this area, so you won’t have to go far to find just the Italian dinner you’re craving or that perfect pair of shoes. One of the country’s largest outlet malls, Potomac Mills, is just short ride away for bargain hunting. And if you’re looking for concerts and other performances, Jiffy Lube Live and the Hylton Performing Arts Center host internationally renowned artists.
Both communities also offer a variety of amenities so you can enjoy activities in your own backyard. Check out what each of these picturesque communities boasts and take your pick of your retirement dream home.
