Falls Run is a gated 55+ community offering an exciting social lifestyle in a premier Northern Virginia location.  

Set in the heart of Fredericksburg, Falls Run is a Del Webb development which fully supports an active adult lifestyle. This gated community provides affordable housing and an exciting line-up of amenities through its spacious clubhouse. It also enjoys a prime location halfway between Richmond, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.


Built between 2002 and 2005, Falls Run was specifically designed as an active adult community for homebuyers aged 55 and older. The 784 residences primarily consist of detached single-family homes, but about one-third of the community is made up of attached villas.

Single-family homes range in size from 1,200 to 2,000 square feet, while villas are a bit smaller with floor plans ranging from 1,100 to 1,500 square feet. During the three-year construction period, single-family homes were offered in six-floor plans and villas were available in three designs.

Single-family homes have a minimum of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two-car garages, while villas begin with one bedroom, two bathrooms, and one-car garages. Both designs have options for dens, basements, and additional bedrooms.
