Some interesting things have been happening on the real estate front in Loudoun County recently.

Earlier this week, news came that golf legend Jack Nicklaus will have a house at Nicklaus Village, a 25-home development that will be part of Creighton Farms, a golf community in Aldie, VA about an hour’s drive from DC. The community is being developed by Southworth Development and will be located not far from the golf course designed by Nicklaus at Creighton Farms.

In other Loudoun County-related real estate news, the Washington Business Journal’s Tierney Plumb reported today that Willowsford, a 2,175-home community that is being built about six miles west of the Loudoun County/Fairfax County border, will have its own farm where produce will be grown for residents.

Plumb reports that developer Rockpoint Land, LLC is in the process of picking a farmer and that half of the project’s 4,000 acres will be set aside for the farm and open space. The homes will range in price from the mid-$600,000s to more than $1 million, and start at 2,800 square feet.
