In the beginning of 1962, large farms made up the 1,762 acres of what today is called Sterling Park. Dulles International Airport and the extension of water and sewer lines to the airport began to change the landscape when construction started in 1959. The vision of Sterling was to offer more amenity-rich homes and neighborhoods at a lower price. Today, Sterling is home to many businesses as well as branch offices for many major companies. Sterling has a diverse population that offers a great atmosphere filled with friendly people.
Located northwest of Herndon, east of Ashburn, and west of Great Falls, Sterling includes part of Dulles International Airport. This outlying northern Virginia suburb in most ways meets the definition of “exurbs,” where people benefit economically from the city and may use its airport, but have little daily connection with it. Many do commute to the D.C. area proper, but more often commute to other places in the neighboring suburbs.
Sterling has a strong housing market with many options. You can find just about anything ranging from large family homes near parks and schools to chic townhomes close to shopping, dining, and public transportation. Sterling also is the heart of Northern Virginia Community College.
