Langley, VA Homes For Sale
Anybody who's read a government thriller or watched a blockbuster action movie set in the Washington metropolitan area has likely heard of Langley, Virginia.

More About Langley, VA Homes For Sale
Langley was once farm land belonging to Thomas Lee, a wealthy tobacco plantation owner. The village was named after his English ancestral estate. Langley was severely impacted by the Civil War and was the site of Camp Pierpont, established by the Union Army. The area where the camp once stood is now part of the Langley Fork Historic District, just a few miles from the Chain Bridge crossing at the Potomac River. In the aftermath of the war, the village became part of a larger regional development boom. There are still a number of original structures left however, such as the Langley Toll House, built to service the Georgetown Pike. Also still standing is the Langley Ordinary (tavern) which served as Union General McCall's headquarter and as a wartime hospital.
In 1903, the Great Falls & Old Dominion Railroad commenced construction. It was completed in 1906 and used as a local commuter means of electric rail transportation between Great Falls and Washington DC. One of the railroad's leading lights was John McLean, president of the Washington Gas & Light Co, and future Washington Post editor. In time, Langley was absorbed into the expanding community named after McLean. The post World War II era brought a further absorption of Langley's residential development into McLean. Another huge change too place in 1959 as the U.S. Government broke ground for its CIA headquarters in Langley. The name of the town once known for agriculture and wealthy summer homes would eventually become synonymous with the intelligence community.
When it comes to homes within Langley's actual bounds, they are often listed as McLean properties. This isn't to say that the unincorporated census-designated place doesn't have any other identity or function outside of its government association. Indeed, there is the popular Langley High School, as well as the Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run, a popular privately run park in the U.S. National Park Service. And, regardless of any "McLean confusion," Langley properties stand on their own and are quite pricey, with an average list of $1.295 million. It's safe to say they rank right up there with other luxury homes for sale in the DC Metro area. Through its association with McLean, Langley is part of the fasted growing city in Virginia according to Forbes.
