This small, picturesque incorporated town of Clifton, VA is ideally located just outside the Capital Beltway, south of I-66. Historically the hunting ground used by Algonquin speaking members of the Native American Dogue tribe, this land was settled by Europeans starting in the early 18th century. What makes Clifton unique for the home buyer is its low-density structure. Because of ecological concerns, since the 1970’s all homes in Clifton have been built on at least five acres. As a result, many home owners have found Clifton desirable for its privacy, large custom homes and equestrian areas.
Attractions in Clifton include the Whitehall Farm and Market including a farmer’s market with locally produced, high-quality farm products and educational tours. There is also the Westfields Golf Club that includes natural wetlands, rolling hills, and beautiful oak trees. The nearby Bull Run Marina includes picnic facilities, hiking trails and boat and canoe rentals. Residents of Clifton celebrate the annual Clifton Day Festival, a nonprofit event that raises funds for local organizations which includes live music, antiques, arts and crafts, and children’s activities.
