Burke Centre Real-Time Stats


A  Burke, Virginia Community

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 VA, but without the town centers, Metro Stations, and destinations that sometimes make NoVa living constricting. 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.

Living in Burke Centre

Curious about what it's like to live in Burke Centre, Virginia? Or do you want to learn more about the area? Neighborhood Expert, Nicole Nellis Cockrell has all the details on this highly sought-after Burke community. Explore Burke Lake Park, delicious restaurants, walking trails and several amenities within the community.  

As we've stated, there are no malls here, no shopping destinations, outlets, concert venues, or office parks. People come here to live peacefully and to raise families away from the distractions of more modern communities such as Reston. Living in Burke is a simpler type of living, a community that prides itself on its safety, schools, and family activities. When people have outings, they opt outdoors. With countless woodland areas, lake activities, hiking, trails, and sports teams (for adults and children), Burke residents are all about it! For shopping, dining, and other activities that don't involve getting your heart rate up, nearby Springfield, Fairfax City, and Tysons Corner are most likely where you're headed.

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!
