Sterling Real Estate Information

An unincorporated Washington, DC suburb in Loudoun County, Sterling is comprised of a number of towns, including Broad Run Farms, Dulles, Potomac Falls, Sterling Park, and Sugarland Run. This area of northern Virginia has a rich heritage, dating back to the land grants from King Charles II in 1649. The Washington Dulles International Airport brings a significant amount of traffic through Sterling and has contributed a large amount to the development of the area. Residents enjoy the variety of daily flights that can get them around the world within hours. The National Weather Service’s main building for the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area is also located in Sterling, making it one of the largest employers in the area.

Known as horse and wine country, the Sterling’s natural beauty attracts a number of residents and guests alike to a number of annual events like Upperville’s Hunt County Stable Tour that welcomes people to some of the area’s loveliest equine estate. The famous Sterling Wine Trail weaves its way through the gorgeous countryside and to over a dozen nicely appointed Virginian vineyards.

The 357-acre Claude Moore Park is one of Sterling’s most prized pieces of real estate.
