Burke is located south of the center of Fairfax County. Established in the 1800’s around a railroad station, this area blossomed around the success of the railroad industry. Nowadays, a Virginia Railway Express (VRE) station serves Burke, giving residents an easy and stress-free commuting option.

Once considered a site for a metropolitan airport for the D.C. area, the land purchased was developed into one of the area’s biggest outdoor attractions – Burke Lake Park. This park features over 200 acres of land which boasts several outdoor activities including jogging trails, picnic and sports areas, a golf course and driving range, miniature golf, boat rentals, an ice cream parlor, a carousel and more. Burke Lake Park is not the only offering for outdoor activities, as the area offers many parks and outdoor venues for its residents.

For those who have different tastes and interests, everything from museums to entertainment venues to shopping and dining are available nearby.

This area offers all the joys of suburban life while still remaining within easy commuting distance of Washington, D.C. This area offers all kinds of housing – from condos to townhomes to single-family homes.
