Along with all the joy that comes along with house hunting, it can be overwhelming, confusing, and stressful. Many factors contribute to this decision as you’ll notice in this post. You’re NOT just buying a house, moreover, you’re buying the community, the location, and the area.
This can be even harder when you’re not from the area or haven’t been to it. Some of the many things considered are; What are the schools like? How is the commute to work? What kind of people live in the neighborhood? Is it safe? Do I need to have a car? Where are the closest shopping centers?
Now, this is why I’ve created this post for those who are unfamiliar with Wentworth Green in Gainesville Va and would like to learn more about it.
Believe me, I was in the same position as you about 3 years ago while we were deciding where we wanted to move. As a first-time-homebuyer I wanted my new home to be perfect for our growing family.
The Wentworth Green Community is particularly special to me because this is the community I live in. We bought our house while it was literally a dirt lot and watched it be built every step of the way. Wentworth Green has blossomed into a warm and loving community and I say that because I’ve seen it go through all of the stages.
As a realtor, I always try to put myself in my client’s shoes, so I could feel and envision what they’re going through. I try to leverage my experience and knowledge about the neighborhood as much as possible to help you decide if Wentworth Green is the perfect community for you and your family.
What you’ll notice is that I’ll provide you with Pros and Cons about living in Wentworth Green, as well. There is no right or wrong answer, but being a resident here, I’ve gained tons of insights and experience that I’d like to share with you. Which is why I incorporate visuals in my blog posts as well. The idea here is to give you a preview of the community so you can make your own judgment if this community is a good fit.

Now, with that out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff…
1. Wentworth Green is as Good as New Construction!
Wentworth Green is a new residential community located in Gainesville Va. This community consists of 472 homes (single family homes, townhomes, and condominiums).
Part of this community consists of beautiful single family homes which were developed in the early 2010’s. The development was followed-up with the development of luxury single families, townhomes and condos in 2015, by NV Homes and Ryan Homes.
Note📍: The focus of this post and visual tour are on homes developed after 2015.
Below, you’ll see pictures of the NV townhomes and single families in Wentworth Green:
2. Wentworth Green Offers a Resort-Style Outdoor Swimming Pool
The Wentworth Green pool is conveniently located beside the walking trail, playground, and clubhouse. It’s a great way for the neighbors to meet and get to know each other.
The outdoor pool consist of 1 baby pool where there are 5 water fountains that babies and toddlers really enjoy, and one larger pool for the adults and bigger kids. In the baby pool, they have a huge umbrella fountain where kids love going under and getting splashed.
You can order pizza, bring lunch, and snacks for your kids and their friends to have during break time. You’d also be granted multiple guests passes, so you can enjoy the day with your friends and family.

3. Wentworth Green is Perfect For Commuters
There is also another HUGE advantage for Wentworth Greeners – People that need to commute to DC. and Tysons Corner can take advantage of the “OmniRide”, a commuter bus service.
The commuter lot is 0.2 miles away from the community (could be a little bit more or less depending on where you exactly live in Wentworth Green) and provides a stress-free ride on an OmniRide Express bus directly from Gainesville to the Pentagon, Tysons Corner Metro Station or downtown DC.
Commuting along I-66 can make you want to pull your hair out and you can expect it to get worse as construction ramps up to add the new Express Lanes, so this commuter lot is a great benefit for those who work in the DC area.

4. Walking Trails to Virginia Gateway And Promenade
The Wentworth Green walking trail is very popular and provides easy access to shopping, schools, and entertainment (Regal movie theater and Bar Louie are 5 mins away on foot ).
The Virginia Gateway has tons of great restaurants, shops and is accessible within minutes via the walking trail. The walking trail is super popular – Many use the trail as a jogging way, somewhere peaceful to stroll on a nice day with their little one or walking their dogs.
Take advantage of the beautiful weather and leave the car at home. My family and I usually walk there early evenings, we can go to Uncle Julio’s, and my daughter can also have some fun at the water fountain.
Below you’ll see the variety of stores such as Target, Best Buy, Lowe’s and much more at Virginia Gateway:
