Explore Eastern Loudoun
The transition from Fairfax into Loudoun is fairly seamless on the eastern borders along Route 7, Route 28 and Route 50. Potomac Falls, Sterling, Ashburn and Chantilly comprise Eastern Loudoun and offer a variety of housing options. The prime location equals a higher premium for homes, but the shorter commute and multiple amenities and shopping options are well worth the money. Below you will find information on a variety of communities within eastern Loudoun. I have not detailed all the housing options so please feel free to contact me with questions!
