Welcome To Penderbrook
Penderbrook in Fairfax VA is one of those unique communities that offers an experience that you simply will not find elsewhere.
Many prospective homebuyers are attracted to Penderbrook because of the serene setting and a large selection of activities.
It almost feels like you are on vacation, especially if you are a golfer. And yet, it is found right in the heart of west Fairfax. Oh, and unlike a vacation, you can live here full time.
Penderbrook is a self proclaimed “golf course community” and is built around an 18 hole championship course. The course is open to the public, and attracts avid golfers everyday who are looking to play a challenging course in Fairfax County.
Some holes require well placed shots over the water. There is also a full service pro shop. This is perfect if you are like me and do not manage to get that ball over the water.
After golfing, you can get a meal at the clubhouse on site and tally up the score. One of the benefits of being a resident is Penderbrook Community currently offers a discount on greens fees for residents.
Golf is not the only activity to enjoy in Penderbrook. The community has a large swimming pool, complete with lap lanes and also a separate diving well. Next to the pool is the clubhouse, and a recently rebuilt fitness center on top. The fitness center goes far beyond the typical treadmills and has something for everyone looking of all fitness goals.
In addition, there are tennis courts, basketball courts, and walking trails for residents to enjoy. Despite the fact that the community is close to major commuter routes, it is built around a large golf course and gives most of it a quiet relaxed feel.
The location is also great as it is a short drive to The Shoppes at Fair Lakes, Fairfax Corner, Fairfax Town Center and a slew of other places that make the area desirable.
Homes For Sale In Penderbrook
As diverse as the activities are the homes that are often for sale in Penderbrook. There are three condo communities, clusters of townhomes, and luxury single family homes.
Many of the homes in Penderbrook back up to the golf course and have great year round views.
Townhomes For Sale In Penderbrook
There are three sections of townhomes in Penderbrook, for more townhomes in Fairfax VA see my guide.
The first contain the smallest townhomes by sq ft., and are located on Wedgeway Court & Place.
The distinct feature of these townhomes is they have two large bedrooms rather than three smaller bedrooms. Basements in this section are finished to varying degrees. Some have a full bath and space for rec room/office.
The price for these townhomes are less than the other two sections. This is because they are smaller and have no garage option.
The layouts are inviting, with kitchens usually in the back of the home and many have golf course views with decks overlooking.
If you continue on Penderbrook Dr and onto South Penderbrook Dr, on the left you will a cluster of larger townhomes built off Inverness Ct and other smaller courts.
These townhomes were built to be luxurious. They are priced higher than wedgeway, but you will get a lot more space and all of the townhomes in this section have a garage.
This section has large bumpouts, high ceilings, open open floor plans, bay windows and some even have an extra loft space.
The back row of townhomes were built against a couple of holes in the golf course for seasonal views and some green wooded green space.
Further down the South Penderbrook Dr. you will find the last cluster of townhomes.
This section was built last, in the early/mid 90s with the others built in the late 80s.
There are townhomes with garages, but many actually just have reserved parking and more space in the basement.
This area has the most diverse options for floor plans, and also exteriors.
One small section has incredible views of both the golf course and Penderbrook’s largest golf ball filled pond.
Condos For Sale In Penderbrook
There are three condo complexes in penderbrook as well.
Heights At Penderbrook
Heights at Penderbrook is right in the center of the action. These buildings are built with a few levels, and the tops level has an option for a loft.
Finished in the late 80s, these units are popular because many have course views, and some are a good size and offer three bedrooms and a loft.
The most sought after units are the top floor, as they have the loft and also vaulted high ceilings. These units that also have the course view are the most sought after in this complex.
Across from the Heights is Penderbrook Square.
These units are, on average, smaller than the other complexes. There is a large selection of one bedroom units with 500-700 square feet. These units are popular among investors.
Historically, the condo fee here is also very good. It includes its own pool as well as Penderbrook’s large pool by the clubhouse.
Also, the Penderbrook master fees have been included in the condo fee for this complex which is unique. Check with me on that because like most things in real estate (and life) it is subject to change.
This is a great complex if you want something smaller with a smaller price tag.
Oxford house condos are simple, elegant and sought after.
The complexes have two layouts, one has both have two bedrooms. They are just over 1200 square feet, and then the top level units have a loft area in addition.
Most of the units are nice because the bedrooms are on either end of the unit, with living space and kitchen in between.
Single Family Homes For Sale In Penderbrook
There are two large sections of luxury single family homes in Penderbrook. One is off of Center Way, and the other off Parkside Drive.
These single family detached homes were, like the rest of the community, built in the late 1980s and early to mid 1990s.
If you are interested in a single family home in Penderbrook, keep in mind that it is notorious for having low inventory, especially in healthy markets. In other words, strike while the iron is hot if you are looking to move here.
If you see any listed above, reach out to me.
The community is laid out in a way that many of the homes have views of various holes of the golf course. The single family homes are surrounded by the golf course, so more than half have some level of a view.
The two sections of homes are built on either side of clubhouse, fitness center & pool area.
The homes were built with large open kitchens, grand staircases and open hallways, decks off the back, master suites with large bathrooms, two car garages and large basements.
Although the lots are on the smaller side, the country club atmosphere makes up for it.
There are multiple associations in Penderbrook. There is also one master association that you will buy into if you become a Penderbrook home owner. That includes townhomes, condos and single family homes.
