Lake Barcroft is a water-oriented community set on a wooded lake in Falls Church, Virginia. The private 135-acre lake is the heart of this Northern Virginia neighborhood, comprised of 1,045 single-family homes, of which 250 are located on the water. The houses are unique as most were built by individuals rather than developers. Many are traditional 1950-1960’s ramblers, ranchers, and colonials; however, Lake Barcroft is also home to a sizable number of contemporary and mid-century modern homes, including several designed by Charles Goodman. Home prices in 2020-2021 have ranged from $620,000 for a 3BR/3BA fixer-upper off the water to $3,000,000 for a 6BR/6.5BA contemporary lakefront home.

All residents have access to Lake Barcroft’s five private sand beaches — staffed by lifeguards in the summer — where they can enjoy swimming, fishing, and boating. Residents can use electric powered pontoon boats, sailboats, and self-propelled boats such as canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and stand-up paddleboards. Lake Barcrofters pride themselves on having a true sense of community and partake in many annual events, including the Halloween parade, Fourth of July fireworks, Earth Day, Labor Day games, art shows, music concerts, and more!

Located inside the Beltway, Lake Barcroft is easily accessible to major commuter routes and just 9 miles to Washington DC and minutes to Tysons Corners, Arlington, and Alexandria
