Set just 30 minutes from the nation’s capital, Heritage Hunt is one of Northern Virginia’s premier active adult communities. This development features three spacious clubhouses and a challenging 18-hole golf course. Having both single-family and attached residences in a wide range of prices makes it easy for retirees to find a home within their budget.

Though Heritage Hunt is a modern community built by Lennar Homes between 1998 and 2009, it is set on historic land. The area was once a horse farm owned by Colonel John Marsh, and its original mansion has been restored and renovated into a functional clubhouse. Throughout the community, the developers have clearly embraced the area’s historic charm with spacious clubhouses that feature white columns, covered verandas, and stylish interiors.

Amenities at Heritage Hunt

Amenities within the community are spread across three recreation centers: the Heritage Hunt Clubhouse, the Marsh Mansion Clubhouse, and the Fitness and Aquatic Center. The Heritage Hunt Clubhouse, which is wrapped in covered balconies and porches, makes a striking picture as it overlooks landscaped lawns and the resort-style outdoor swimming pool and spa area. Inside, this spectacular amenity center houses a grand ballroom, fine dining, billiards and card rooms, activities rooms, a comfortable lounge, and a golf pro shop.

It’s easy for residents to stay in shape at the Fitness and Aquatics Center. Located beside the Heritage Hunt Clubhouse, this impressive facility boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center, dedicated aerobics studios, and fully-equipped locker rooms. The indoor swimming pool lets residents enjoy the water year-round, while the outdoor pool is a resident hot spot during the sunny summer months. The community putting and chipping green is also located just outside of the Fitness and Aquatics Center.

The Marsh Mansion

Now a beautiful Heritage Hunt landmark, the Marsh Mansion Clubhouse lovingly preserves the history of Colonel John Marsh’s original horse farm. This spectacular building includes banquet facilities, a billiards room, a library, and meeting rooms. Marsh Mansion can be reserved by residents for personal events, such as parties, weddings and other special occasions.

Golf at Heritage Hunt

Any discussion of Heritage Hunt amenities should not overlook the importance of the community’s fabulous 18-hole golf course. Designed by Arthur Hills, the Heritage Hunt golf course provides four tee boxes and various design elements which make it a challenging, yet entertaining course for players of any skill level. The beauty of the course can also be enjoyed by players and non-players alike as it rolls gently throughout the development.

Active adult retirees in the Virginia area will certainly enjoy the country club lifestyle offered at Heritage Hunt.
