Staff Picks: Brookfield’s Best Model Home Photos

When you market new homes for a living you see a lot of pretty pictures. A LOT. In fact, after all these years of touring through gorgeous model homes, each one more breathtaking than the last, I think I’ve become a bit of a new home snob. With such high expectations, it becomes harder and harder for us to be “WOWed” with a model home because that level of beauty is just what we’ve become accustomed to. I know. Rough life, huh?

So we asked our staff, new home snobs and all, to pick their favorite Brookfield model pics. The ones that gave them that WOW moment. So here they are Brookfield fans, the best of the best in Brookfield models pics:

Avendale in Bristow – Not Your Typical NOVA Community. And that’s the point.

From the moment you turn off Nokesville Road into the charming streetscape of Avendale, it feels different. The entrance is flanked by lush trees and a stately stone entry monument. The Artisan-style homes provide a unique, vintage feel, hearkening back to the character and architectural details of years past. Inside the homes you can’t help but be taken aback by the contrast between the old and the new. For as much as the exterior reflects styles of the past, the interior boasts all the luxuries and conveniences of modern-day. It’s the best of both worlds – the charm of the past with the luxuries of the present.

The Avendale Entrance

Avendale is tucked between Rt. 28 and Vint Hill Road in the highly-sought after Bristow section of Prince William County. It’s desirable location lends itself to a plethora of commuting options to include commuter lots, I-66, and the Manassas VRE station. Adjacent to the community and easily within walking distance is Bristow Shopping Center which includes favorites such as Harris Teeter, Anytime Fitness, and Starbucks. Also just a short distance away are Bristow’s highly-acclaimed schools.

When complete, the community will consist of 295 homes and a full complement of amenities to include walking trails, basketball courts, a playground for the little ones, and a dog park for our four-legged friends. The community’s topography and tree buffer allows residents to enjoy a strong sense of privacy within their individual homes, yet the community spaces were intentionally programmed to encourage togetherness and social interaction with neighbors. Again striking a perfect balance.

Avendale sets itself apart from the typical Northern Virginia community in many ways and we invite you to experience the difference for yourself. Our community has three fully-furnished model homes, each offering different sizes and price points. Our models are open daily from 10 AM – 6 PM and our competitive pricing begins in the $400s.

Be Social

Our homes are a reflection of who we are, what we value, and who we aspire to be. Be Brookfield is about allowing prospective homebuyers to find a home design they love, at a price they can afford, in a location that suits their lifestyle.

#BeSocial is the connecting element of Be Brookfield. In addition to building high-quality homes, we also want to create lively, connected communities of neighbors who quickly become friends. Life in the DC Metro area tends to get so overly scheduled and busy, that we don’t always have time to visit with neighbors or bring brownies to the new couple down the street. We want #BeSocial to be the online equivalent to that.

Connecting with Brookfield online allows people to connect with other Brookfield buyers – their neighbors – while they’re waiting for coffee at Starbucks, in line at the grocery store, in between meetings and so forth. It’s a practical way to make meaningful connections while still maintaining our crazy busy lives.

So let’s get that conversation started.

Your Fall Home Checklist

You can feel it – that slight chill in the air. Stepping outside to the warmth of the sun in your t-shirt and shorts will have to wait till next summer. For now, oversized sweaters and boots will have to do. While you’re at it, why not make sure your home is in tip-top shape so you can tone down on the layers?

  • Gutters. Clogged drainpipes and gutters will cause wear and tear, water will overflow, which in turn, damages your home and land. Make sure to clear out leaves and debris.
  • Fireplace and chimney. Before you start using the fireplace for those cold nights, clear it of ash and charred wood. Have the chimney inspected and cleaned by a professional to make sure that the damper can be tightly closed to prevent drafts.
  • Heating system. Inspect your home’s heating vents. Check for blockage or furniture, carpet and curtains covering openings. Dust vents and clean filters. Schedule an appointment for an annual heating system check-up.
  • Drafts. To stay warm, save energy and reduce your heating bills, examine windows and doors for cracks and seal them to prevent cold air from coming in.

But wait, there’s more! See Reader’s Digest’s full checklist to make sure you have everything covered this fall and winter!

A Stress-Free Labor Day

It’s almost Labor Day and we dread that after it comes the reality of an ending summer. Spending time with loved ones you won’t see for awhile or your children who’ll start school is a must to create memories that will keep you warm during the cold months ahead.

A little low on money to go on a fancy vacation? Not up to taking on the stress that comes with planning a road trip? Don’t fret. There are plenty of ways to spend your Labor Day weekend without dropping a dime or breaking a sweat. We’ve got you covered.

At Snowden Bridge, the little ones can splash around in the pirate water park. Get active outdoors by taking a morning walk or bike ride on Saranac’s trail system, then finish off with lunch at the picnic area. Little man working on his jump shot? Take him to the private basketball courts at Woodstream.




Every amenity is just a walk or short drive away within our Brookfield communities. And this isn’t the half of it. Want to see more? Check out or call a Sales Manager today!
