Van Metre, founded in 1955, is one of the largest privately owned homebuilders and developers in the nation’s capital area. At present 3,420 units have been built and occupied to meet a range of lifestyles and budgets—most of them are varied styles of single-family homes; town homes and some apartments are also included. There are a limited number of new single-family homes and condominiums still to be constructed, although there are always houses and townhouses for sale.
The Broadlands community is managed by Broadlands Association, a homeowners association that incorporated in 1995. Broadlands became homeowner-controlled in 2009. Recent sales activity shows that townhouses in Broadlands sell in the $300k to $500k range. Broadlands also includes two apartment complexes, The Arbors, and Broadlands Apartments.

The entire Broadlands community is spaciously designed to flow around Stream Valley Park, 150 acres of natural haven with wooden trails, wetlands and wildlife preserves providing recreation for people of all ages. In addition, many open spaces and areas like Hillside Park and Oak Tree Grove provide perfect areas for children to play for hours. At Broadlands, nature is not only a restorative backdrop for community activities, but is also a catalyst for bringing residents together, whether learning to build bluebird houses or participating in numerous post-certification activities protecting their Wildlife Habitat.
For a community still so young, Broadlands is close-knit, vibrant and growing, with families placing major emphasis on schools and quality of education. Boasting one of the best school districts in the metropolitan area, Loudoun County public schools offer educational programs that rank with the best in Virginia and in the nation, providing well-run programs for Gifted Students, Vocational and Alternative Education, as well as Special Education. Onsite, Broadlands has two elementary schools (Hillside and Mill Run) and one middle school (Eagle Ridge). Students grow up together and attend the same high school nearby, Briar Woods High School, with continuity of friendships that last a lifetime.
