Farmington On The Green is a neighborhood of about 75 homes near the Town of Purcellville in Northern, Virginia. The name, “On The Green” refers to the community’s proximity to Loudoun Golf & Country Club. The back nine of Loudoun Golf & Country Club runs along the eastern border of the neighborhood. A number of homes back directly to holes #12, #13 and #14.
For many years, Farmington On The Green, known as “the FOG” by locals, has been one of the most in-demand neighborhoods in the county. Why? What’s so great about life in “the FOG”? Here’s a Top Ten to help you understand why those of us who live here love it so much…
#1 – Living on the Golf Course
Loudoun Golf & Country Club is one of the best kept secrets in golf here in Northern Virginia. Built in 1927, the 18 hole course offers a unique layout. It’s playable for golfers at any level, but infinitely challenging even for more talented players. Over the past several years, LGCC has been in the midst of a major renovation of the golf course. The result is 18 impeccably maintained greens in a natural setting, that’s very walkable. “The Club” is not affiliated with the neighborhood in any official way, but 30-50% of neighborhood residents are members.
Loudoun Golf & Country Club is a unique community unto itself. It’s unassuming, uniformly friendly and welcoming. Membership dues are among the lowest in the Washington DC region. The saying goes, “We put the COUNTRY in country club.” This isn’t a hoidy-toidy, richy-rich club of snobs. This is a club your whole family belongs to, taking advantage of the swimming pool, an active tennis community and simply one of the best golf courses in the area. There are tournaments and events throughout the year, and the club house is a place where friends gather for good food, drink and merriment. A typical Friday evening will find you and about 50 of your neighbors on the patio, enjoying dinner, watching golfers come up the 9th fairway, with live local music. Residents of Farmington On The Green can walk home, or take a golf cart for safety or convenience.
#2 – Living Next Door to Franklin Park
On the western side of the neighborhood is Franklin Park, a regional park in the western portion of Loudoun County. The 200 acre park includes:
3.5 mile walking / horseback riding trail
Outdoor pool and “Sprayground”
2 Lighted Tennis Courts
Beach Volleyball Court
Rugby / Football / Soccer / Lacrosse fields
An 18 hole Disc Golf Course
Baseball / Softball Fields
Equestrian Ring & Corrals
In-line Hockey Rink
Fishing – Catch & Release Pond
Programs & special events include:
Trout Fishing Derby
4th of July Fireworks – One of the best displays in the county
Franklin Park is just a tremendous resource, a place where any kid could grow up, never running out of things to do. The park grounds are immaculate with no litter. It’s a safe and family friendly environment.
#3 Close to the Town of Purcellville
Purcellville is simply a classic American small town. It used to be one of the last stops on the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad. In the 19th & 20th century, families would escape the heat of summer in Washington D.C., by heading west to rural Loudoun County. Purcellville was a farming community. The town has preserved that feeling of quaint simplicity, despite it’s growth as a suburb of the District.
Purcellville still isn’t quite big enough that we have a Home Depot (go to Nichol’s Hardware instead) or a Walmart (go to Leesburg). But we have great local restaurants like Magnolia’s at the Mill or Finn Thai, as well as many local wineries, breweries and distilleries.
Purcellville conducts a number of parades through the year and in the fall, the entire town becomes a giant flea market during the annual Purcellville Tag Sale.
#4 Not in the Town of Purcellville
Although it’s great to live close to Purcellville, there are a couple of big benefits to being outside the town limits. We don’t pay any extra town taxes, and we don’t pay for town water and sewer. The savings is significant!
#5 High Speed Internet is Available in Farmington On The Green
Unlike some other rural communities in Western Loudoun, all the major carriers are here, including Verizon FIOS and Comcast. This makes working from home a lot easier.
#6 Places to Walk Your Dog (or Yourself) or Run or Bicycle
If you’re a walker, runner or cyclist you’ll be thrilled with many options on paths. Many of us walk on the golf course when the golfers aren’t out there. Franklin Park has a 3.5 mile perimeter trail that includes some challenging hills. The neighborhood itself offers ~5 miles of beautifully paved roads. To the south, along Tranquility Road, an old gravel road winds past Otium Cellar Winery and Tranquilty Farm back through hundreds of acres of farmland. You can truly go as far as your legs will take you.
#7 – Wildlife
Between the golf course, the park, common areas throughout the neighborhood and adjacent farmland, there’s quite a bit of open space that provides habitat for all manner of wildlife. Deer are abundant in the neighborhood. Rabbits, raccoons, possum, skunk and snakes are all quite common. Wild turkeys and foxes can be seen throughout the neighborhood. This black bear came up on our deck for the bird feeder suet. Bird seed is ok but suet will attract the bears. Better to leave that down.
#8 – Natural Beauty
Farmington On The Green was built starting back in the 1980s. Even from the earliest days, homeowner’s planted flowering trees, Cleveland Pears, Kwanzan Cherry’s, Flowering Crab Apples, Star Magnolias. In Spring when these trees are in bloom the neighborhood seems frosted in cotton candy. The community was built around open spaces that have been preserved as meadows. In the summer a slight breeze makes waves across fields of waist high grass.
#9 – Community – The People of Farmington On The Green
For many years there has been a great sense of community here. People look out for one another and go the extra mile to be a good neighbor. Folks come out to help when there’s a tree down after a storm. We share tools and equipment. We find lost dogs and check on each other. There’s a very active Facebook page where people share information and connect with each other. The people here are just wonderful and go out of their way to welcome new neighbors.
#10 – We Like to Party!
There are two big events throughout the year, attended by most of the neighborhood. Oktoberfest is the Fall potluck. At Christmas time, an annual party is hosted, usually at the same home each year. Throughout the year, smaller informal gatherings are conducted.

Living in Western Loudoun, we still see quite a bit of wildlife. Deer, foxes, raccoons, skunk and possum are all very common. Just last year we had a large black bear on the back deck. It’s a rare treat to discover a native animal that I’ve never seen before. That’s just what happened at my new listing in Winchester. Have you ever seen one of these before? Probably not.
Meet the “Fisher” or “Fisher Cat”, a relative of the weasel and mink. Fishers are a fierce predator found in forests. Once trapped for fur, they were driven to the brink of extinction in the US. However they were reintroduced in some areas and welcomed for their unique ability to prey on porcupines.
So, where was this exotic specimen discovered? On a 28+ acre lot in the town of Cross Junction, just north of Winchester, Virginia — about an hour west of Dulles International Airport.
In addition to exotic wildlife, the property offers sincere privacy and serene mountain views.
The house features 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, a roomy kitchen with island seating and a separate dining area. The large family room has a wood stove. There’s a separate living room with a wood burning fireplace and large picture windows.
The property might be suitable as a hunting cabin or weekend getaway. Or, just a few minutes from Winchester, perhaps this is your everyday private retreat.
Would you like to REALLY get away from it all? Would you like to escape the traffic and noise of the suburbs and see real wild life? Come visit 281 Dry Creek Lane! Even as autumn winds into winter, it’s a fun drive into the countryside with spectacular views.
