About Loudoun County
Loudoun County, identified as the richest county in the U.S. with a median income topping $125,000, offers more than luxury homes. In fact, the county has a surprising diversity of housing types, amenities that range from walkable town centers to wineries to rural areas where you can hike and fish as well as multiple public and private golf courses. Once an agricultural landscape with 300 dairy farms anchored by the historic town of Leesburg, Loudoun County has been transformed into a hub for high tech companies, federal government agencies and contractors and transportation companies, drawn by Dulles International Airport and the proximity to the nation’s capital. Employment growth is anticipated to continue with the extension of the Silver Line Metro into Loudoun County that will link the area directly to downtown Washington, D.C.
New housing in Loudoun County clusters in two main areas: in the southern area of the county near the town of South Riding and the village of Middleburg, where horse farms and wineries and the elegant Salamander Resort draw visitors year-round; and near Ashburn and Leesburg where major commuter routes link numerous planned communities and town center developments to other parts of Virginia and to downtown D.C.
