Braemar:  Bristow, VA's Largest Community

Braemar, Bristow VA's largest community, was built between 1996-2008.  It is made up of well over twenty-eight hundred residences in a variety of styles and sizes.  The homes in Braemar were constructed by three builders: Ryan Homes, NV Homes and Brookfield Homes.  Brookfield was the developer of the community and the lion's share of the homes are Brookfield construction. 

In Braemar, you can find a large single family home with over five thousand finished square feet of living area, or a townhouse style-condo, and just about everything in between.  Want a small single family home with a two car detached garage?  A semi-detached single family home that is attached only at its rear load garage? A patio home, attached as a quadraplex?  How about a piggyback style townhouse with no yard and a two car garage?  Want a medium sized single family home with a two car attached garage?  What about a single car garage townhouse with a backyard?  Or a townhouse with no garage, but with the backyard?  What about a modest single family home with hardly any yard, sharing a courtyard-like pipe stem with four other homes with a near zero lot line? 

Braemar has them all. 

In addition to having a home to fit any buyer's needs, Braemar has a multitude of amenities including two outdoor swimming pools, one clubhouse and two parks (Clareybrook Park and Braemar Park) that, combined, offer mutiple tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields, a volleyball court, and many playground features for sliding, swinging and climbing.   There is also a network of paved trails on which to walk, jog or bicycle... some that link the older and newer sections of Braemar.

In terms of schools, Braemar has two within its boundariesCedar Point Elementary School is located in the older, or first built section of Braemar off of Braemar Parkway and serves grades K-5.  Marsteller Middle School is in the newer, or more recently built section of Braemar right off of Sudley Manor Drive.  This school serves grades 6-8.

Although Braemar has the self-contained Cedar Point Elementary School, with over twenty-eight hundred households T. Clay Wood Elementary is where some of Braemar's youngest attend. Patriot High School serve all of Braemar's teens, as does Marsteller for middle school.

For the most recent information on which schools your child would attend, please visit the Find Your School application on the Prince William County Public Schools website.

Braemar is conveniently located to a number of shops and restaurants, the closest being Braemar Village Plaza.  Here you will find Safeway (groceries & gas), Subway, Asian Garden, Capital One Bank, Bank of America, Braemar Village Chiropractic, Caring Hands Animal Hospital, Caribou Coffee and much more.  In fact, between this shopping center, and two daycare locations within Braemar, you will find two Kindercares and one Minnieland for your daycare needs.  And if private, early education is more your cup of tea, check out the Bristow Montessori School.

Western Prince William County is bustling with shops, and Braemar is a short distance to all of them, be they in Gainesville, Haymarket or Manassas.  Major grocery chains include Giant Food, Wegmans, Harris Teeter and Shoppers Food Warehouse.  Restaurants and retail shops are not more than a fifteen minute drive.

Braemar is also convenient to the Manassas Campus of George Mason University, which is also home to the Hylton Performing Arts Center and the Freedom Aquatic and Fitness Center.  And you're a quick ten minute drive from Jiffy Lube Live, one of the area's most popular concert venues.

Eastbound commuters living in Braemar have easy access to Route 66 via Linton Hall Road to Route 29, or via Sudley Manor Drive to the Prince William County Parkway.  Having done both, the latter is much faster.  Braemar is very close to the VRE station at Manassas Regional Airport.

Come visit Braemar and why over twenty-eight hundred households have chosen to live here.
