Hayfield Farm

It’s long been considered one of Alexandria’s best neighborhoods, but Hayfield Farm doesn’t just date back to some of its first homes in the mid 1960s. This popular neighborhood has ties way back to the time of George Washington.  In fact, Washington himself once purchased property in the area we now called Hayfield Farm. The land came under his ownership in the mid 1700s.

 Following the war, Washington sold off about 360 acres of the western side of Mount Vernon to settle a debt. The new owner and his wife lived at the Hayfield Manor House, which once stood near Hayfield Road and Bing Court.  The property then went through a couple of ownership changes. By the late 1800s, a barn sat on the property, which was said to resemble a larger version of George Washington’s original barn.

The very first home sold around this time, and the new development was complete by the early 1970s. These days, Hayfield Farm offers nearly 700 homes, with styles across the neighborhood mostly consisting of split-level, rambler, split foyer and Colonial.

The neighborhood is known for its mature trees and well-kept landscaping. Local homeowners also have the advantage of the nearby Hayfield Farm Swim Club.
