More About Pimmit Hills
Pimmit Hills History
Originally founded around the Mid-Century mark, Pimmit Hills started out as mostly farmland, but development took off, and now the area includes more than 1,600 homes. Originally, the homes were mostly three-bedroom, one-bath residences, and most of the homes sat on ¼-acre lots.
In more recent years, some of the older homes have since been replaced with much larger and newer homes, while other homes have been renovated and built onto. Despite some of the newer construction options that now exist, this large community is still considered one of the oldest communities in Fairfax County.
