The unique Northern Virginia community of Willowsford is composed of four neighboring villages. The fourth village, The Greens is located south of Route 50 in Aldie, Virginia. This extraordinary southern Loudoun County neighborhood encompasses the Overlook Knoll Park & Zip Line and the Swart Farmstead Historical Site. The Grove is inspired by Virginia’s scenic landscape and substantial agricultural heritage.
What Makes “The Grove” Special
This innovative community offers residents tons of outdoor appeal.

Situated between The Grove and neighboring village The Greens, Willowsford residents regularly enjoy recreation and entertainment at The Lodge at Willow Lake. As one of the central hubs for neighbors to congregate, The Lodge is similar to a large family lake house. Inside residents indulge in the state-of-the-art fitness center, a teaching kitchen, and a great room that is frequently used for celebrations and community events like cooking classes, the community Autumn Fest, and an annual visit from Santa. Outside The Lodge, residents relish in bocce courts, a yoga and event lawn, a beautiful pool complex, and a terraced sundeck offering majestic views of the surrounding mountains. Take a stroll to the lake center that features a fishing dock and canoe launch.

The Grove at Willowsford: An Agrihood
What is an agrihood? Agrihoods are neighborhood communities that are built around a working farm. The goal of an agrihood is to make residents feel connected to their neighbors, their homes, and the land they live on. In this type of neighborhood residents typically forgo golf courses, country clubs, and other luxury amenities and focus on a healthy, sustainable way of life. The farm becomes the central meeting place where residents socialize. The idea of an agrihood is to merge home with outdoor and natural living.
The most notable feature of The Grove and the Willowsford area is the community farm where residents regularly volunteer. With 300 acres of land, the farm produces over 150 different herbs, flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Several breeds of livestock are raised at the farm as well. Volunteers offer any specialized skills they have to ensure the production of healthy, organic foods. Whether it is carpentry, harvesting crops, or organization all residents are welcome to bring their expertise to the table.
Willowsford Kitchen is what links The Grove’s residents and the farm. The in-house chef and culinary advisor use fresh farm-grown produce while teaching cooking courses and hosting culinary events. Periodically, local and celebrity chefs make appearances at The Willowsford Kitchen while treating residents to a special night of culinary events.
