Huntley Meadows is a townhome community that was built between 1991 and 1994. Most of the over 13 acres that make up our community consist of preserved natural wooded areas that host a variety of wildlife, including deer, fox, rabbits, and a large variety of birds to name a few of the species spotted by residents.
Our community consists of 86 luxury townhomes built in a colonial historical style, both with and without garages and with either walk-out or English basements. Three models were offered by the builder: The Alexandria, The Barrington, and The Canterbury.
Our community has the honored distinction of surrounding the historic early 19th century Huntley Manor. Purchased by the Fairfax County Park Authority in 1989, Huntley Manor has been identified as a rare survival of a genuine federal villa and displaying a rare example of a terraced landscape. It was constructed in 1825 during the exuberant years of the early republic by Thomas F. Mason, grandson of George Mason of Gunston Hall. After a long period of research and fund raising, the County began a restoration effort in 2011, with plans to use the restored house for occasional education events. With this honor comes an additional responsibility for our Community to abide by special restrictions related to a historical overlay imposed by the County.
