Brookfield Communities Make it Easy to Hit the Nature Trails This Spring


There’s no better way to enjoy spring than to get outside and experience nature.

At Brookfield Residential, we’ve learned over the years how important it is to our homebuyers to feel connected to nature. That’s why many of our communities feature dedicated nature trails for hiking or biking. Many more are located close to some of the area’s most popular hiking destinations.

So this spring, lace up your hiking shoes and hit the trails. Take a little break from the fast pace of life to enjoy quieter moments and appreciate the beauty that’s all around us.

Here are some favorite spots at or near Brookfield Residential communities in Virginia:

Avendale in Bristow, VA
Step outside your door in this single-family home community and step onto the walking trail winding through the community. You can then access a trail that moves through Sherwood Forest Park, which also features a well-equipped playground.

Mayfair in Purcellville, VA
It’s one of our newest communities, and it just so happens to be located among some pristine natural beauty. When you have a single-family home or townhome at Mayfair, you’re just a few short minutes from the pedestrian and equestrian trails at Franklin Park. Or you could run, cycle or skate on the 45 miles of paved trail running from Purcellville to Shirlington, as part of the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park.

The Preserve at Goose Creek in Ashburn, VA
As the name suggests, this community of single-family homes and townhomes is set amid a beautiful, scenic area in Loudoun County. Leave time for an evening hike along the community nature trails and make your way out to Goose Creek to enjoy a last bit of beauty at the end of the day.

Embrey Mill in North Stafford, VA
This is another single-family home community where you don’t have to leave the neighborhood to experience the natural beauty of Virginia. It’s set among 285 acres of open space and you’ll find trails and parks throughout the neighborhood.

Snowden Bridge near Winchester, VA
Whether you choose a single-family home or a townhome, you’ll be living a fun and active life at Snowden Bridge. Among the many family-friendly amenities is a trail system that’s perfect for walking, jogging or biking. You’re also just minutes away from Clearbrook Park with paved walking trails, a fishing lake and picnic areas.

Wherever you are this spring, we hope you’ll get out and enjoy the beauty of life that surrounds you in a Brookfield Residential community.

Refresh Your Home Inside and Out This Spring

Spring has arrived. Is your home ready for it?

Spring Plants and Decor

No matter how new your home might be, once you’ve lived in it for a bit, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to freshen up your your living spaces to welcome the spring and summer months. The warm weather just brings a different feel, and your home should reflect that.

Start with the Indoors
Remember, it’s spring inside your home, too.

Give your rugs, carpets and window treatments a thorough cleaning. Mop your hardwoods and your bathroom floors. Now is also the time to declutter and tackle those organization projects that you put off all winter. And don’t forget to replace the batteries in your fire alarms.

Once you get through all that, you can have some fun. Pull out some vases, large and small, and place fresh-cut flowers throughout your home. Add colorful throw pillows to your couches and chairs. Open the windows and let spring in.

Move to the Outdoors
Things are already green and colorful, but this is your chance to give your yard every opportunity to thrive. Grab your rake and make sure you’ve gotten the last of the fall leaves out of your yard. Then seed and water any bare spots you might encounter in the grass.

It’s also a good time to prune your bushes — like forsythia or hydrangea. Cutting them back gives them room to grow full and colorful this year.

Get your hands dirty now. Pull the weeds from your flower beds, then hit your local nursery and pick out your favorite annuals. Plant them and then add mulch for added protection and aesthetic beauty.

Few things are as rewarding as seeing your yard come to life. Have fun this spring. We’re looking forward to seeing all the beautiful yards in Brookfield Residential communities throughout Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.
