More About Lorton, VA Homes For Sale
Lorton's roots go back to early settler days and its name comes from the Lorton Valley Post Office, opened in 1875. There's still some lovely old homes in the area such as a 'gentleman farmer' estate and manor with stately front columns, presently listed for $2.4 million. For the most part however, the real estate market has been defined by modern era development including condo construction along I-95 in the northern part of the community.
The ratio of residences in Lorton breaks down to 53.7% condos and 42.8% single-family homes. The median list price of $399,000 is somewhat deceptive as it is heavily-weighted by clusters of multi-family dwellings that have been selling in the low-six figure range. The good news of course is that there is a wide range of available properties, from one-bedroom condos to seven-figure custom-builts. Home values in the area have enjoyed a steady climb in recent years with an 8.4% increase over the last year.
While Lorton itself is large and spread out, resident residential development tends to fall into specific pocket areas. Much of this is due to large swaths of green space and wetlands, including Mason Neck State Park, Potomac Shoreline Regional Park, Pohick Bay Regional Park and the Meadowood Special Recreation Area. As might be expected, the area is a magnet for visitors with river trails, historic plantations and numerous popular restaurants.
