Living in Burke Centre
Burke, Virginia is one of Fairfax county's hidden gems for its prices and its unpretentious sophistication. Located off the beaten path, Burke exudes all the suburban tranquility that any reasonable homeowner would expect of Northern Virginia, but without the hustle and bustle of the city. Consisting of mostly single-family homes on large lots tucked amongst ancient trees, Burke often feels like you're much farther out than you are. Located only 20 miles from Washington DC (33 minutes by car,) Burke is a land of hikes, horses, little league, and the great outdoors. People come here for serenity and stay for the community.
One of the reasons why homeowners love living in Burke is because of the Burke Centre VRE. This commuter train takes residents into DC for work each day, and has bus service to and from as well as a huge parking deck and free parking. There is even a special paved trail that leads from parts of the neighborhood to the station. Fun fact, on Saturdays, the train station turns into a seasonal farmers market!

Burke Lake Park is a nature lover's paradise, spanning a sprawling 218 acres of water and land-based activities. Fishing and boating enthusiasts can immerse themselves in the tranquil waters, while landlubbers can enjoy a range of fun-filled activities such as volleyball, disc golf, and a driving range. However, the park's crowning jewel is the Burke Lake Loop Trail, recognized by the American Hiking Society as one of the top 10 fitness trails in the country.
Residents in Burke Centre can enjoy several amenities including Community Centers, Community Events, Community Pools, Basketball Courts, Volleyball Courts, Tennis Courts, Tot Lots, and Walking Trails. When Burke residents crave a dose of culture, the thriving city of Fairfax, only 5 miles away, offers an array of art galleries, movie theaters, and cultural events. Arlington, located just 15 miles away, is another cultural hotspot worth exploring. For an even more immersive cultural experience, the glittering lights of Washington, D.C., beckon to the northeast.
