Welcome to Great Falls, VA

Upscale living and residential beauty in an ideal location

One of the wealthiest towns in the nation, Great Falls is a bastion of exquisite estates and good taste. Named for the cascading waters of the Falls on the Potomac River, Great Falls brings to mind lush, leafy streets, horses grazing the fields of picturesque farms and truly magnificent estates perched on the shores of the area’s most famous river. Considered a “million-dollar community,” Great Falls is perhaps the crown jewel of Northern Virginia’s suburbs. Quiet and stately, this elegant town has a reputation for upscale living and an equestrian lifestyle but, although Great Falls is certainly monied, there is no air of pretension here. Home to generations of prominent families, Great Falls has an old-money feel, and a sense of high-quality living, sans anything remotely ostentatious. Perhaps the town’s humble beginnings have influenced the graceful attitude of its residents – back in the 1800s, the refined, sophisticated enclave of today was only a quiet farming community. Now scenic parks, excellent schools, easy access to DC, and an adorable village center round out the reasons why families and young professionals flock to this charming neighborhood.
 
The culinary scene in Great Falls reflects the town’s refined sensibilities and exquisite taste. The elegant L'Auberge Chez Francois delights discerning palates with the authentic taste of France. Consistently ranked as the top French restaurant in the DC area, this family-owned bistro sources ingredients from its own organic garden. Truly the heart of Great Falls, the Great Falls Village Centre boasts the picturesque charm of an English village and offers residents a delightful selection of shops and cafes. This is where you’ll find Great Falls Creamery, a sweet ice cream shop with a cozy patio and handmade, small-batch ice cream. Experience true Irish hospitality at The Old Brogue Irish Pub, along with a menu of classic Irish recipes and upscale gastropub fare, or try the fresh flavors of Peruvian cuisine at PioPio. Those with a love of horses will be delighted to find Turner Farm, a spacious equestrian facility complete with riding rings, lessons, and both dressage and hunter/jumper shows. 

Great Falls offers some of the area’s most impressive educational institutions, including public schools in the highly lauded Fairfax County Public School System, as well as superior private academies, like Mina's School, which specializes in small classes for elementary and junior high students.
