About Gainesville, VA

In an area once known as a sleepy outer-suburb made up of farms and small homes, Gainesville has transformed into a vibrant community marked by large new homes, upscale restaurants and shopping. The Gainesville, VA real estate market has some of the most sought after homes for sale in Northern Virginia. This is due to the significant amount of newer, larger homes and lots, the town's close proximity to major roads - Route 29, Route 15 and I-66 - that connect home owners to the jobs, shopping, dining and cultural attractions in Washington, DC, Arlington County and Fairfax County.

Road improvements in town, like the new interchange at the intersection of Linton Hall Road and Route 29, and the lane enhancements at I-66, have significantly improved traffic in and around Gainesville.
