Catharpin Real Estate Information

Considered by many historians and experts to be an ongoing display of past times, the hidden community of Catharpin lies just northwest of Manassas and despite its lack of recognition is a place rich in heritage and prosperity. Often reminiscent of old America, the majority of residents in Catharpin are especially privileged and well-mannered. Recent studies confirmed these thoughts by determining Catharpin to be one of the wealthiest areas in the nation. The rolling fields, wide meadows, and dirt roads have become trademarks for Catharpin. However, the community’s extremely small size means that only three noticeable roads cross through the area. This limits the foot traffic through Catharpin and effectively maintains the exclusivity of this mystery community.

Although some airplanes taking off and landing at the Washington Dulles International Airport to the north occasionally leaves a trail of noise above Catharpin, the town remains relatively quiet for most of the day. The exclusivity and price range of homes in Catharpin attracts a number of businesspeople who enjoy the community’s proximity to a major travel hub, relatively close distance from larger metropolitan areas, and quiet streets that are relaxing in the evenings. Manassas National Battlefield Park is a few miles southeast of the center of Catharpin. Every year, thousands upon thousands of visitors pour through Catharpin in search of lodging, food, and activities. Unfortunately, Catharpin has very little resources to offer these tourists – a testament to the community’s resolve against large national brands and big name investments locally. The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival that is held nearby is yet another popular event that draws a bunch of people from around the state annually.

Within a fifteen minute radius of Catharpin is a wealth of resources found in Haymarket, Gainesville, and the much larger city of Manassas. James S. Long Regional Park, Fairfax National Golf Club, Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club, Cub Run Park, and Pleasant Valley Golf Course are among the most frequented recreational facilities outside of the immediate Catharpin area. A number of shopping and retail outlets near the town affords residents the convenient luxury of having big name brands at their disposal without having to deal with the troubles of city life, traffic, and busy parking lots in Manassas or Washington, DC. Route 234 quickly whisks Catharpin’s drivers to the I-66 which runs east-west and is a direct link to the nation’s capital.
