The Sleepy Hollow communities in Northern Virginia, are one of the most loved areas in Fairfax County. The original portion contains 276 homes, with the earliest construction beginning right before WWI. Following was the development of Sleepy Hollow Manor, Buffalo Hill, Sleepy Hollow Estates, Sleepy Hollow Woods, and a few other smaller subdivisions that bump against the Lake Barcroft Communities. New construction is usually related to teardowns or rebuilds, and sales continue to be strong in these neighborhoods. One main reason is that they are less than 8 miles to the Washington, DC border.
