History

Brambleton is located at the site of the former community of Royville, VA, which existed as early as 1908 at the intersection of Belmont Ridge Road and Creighton Road.

Developing the Brambleton master-planned community began in earnest in the spring of 1999, immediately after Brambleton Group L.L.C. acquired the property. Road improvements were necessary along Route 607/772 to connect Brambleton to Exit 7/Loudoun County Parkway off the Dulles Greenway. Today, Exit 7, the Loudoun County Parkway, is the gateway into the Brambleton community.

Residents in the development are members of the Brambleton Community Association, a full service homeowners association.

Town Center

The Town Center is the heart of Brambleton with retail, restaurants, entertainment, public spaces and commercial offices. The Town Center serves as the location for the community's annual Sizzlin' Summer Concerts, Farmers Markets, July 4 fireworks display and numerous special events and festivals.
