Pimmit Hills has become one of the most sought after subdivisions in the 22043 zip code of Falls Church, Fairfax County. Homeowners have seen their property values steadily increasing in recent years, due to the high demand for homes in this neighborhood.
Once nothing but farmland, the area that is now known as Pimmit Hills began to take shape in the 1950s. This neighborhood in Falls Church, Virginia is filled with mostly single family homes - most built throughout the 1950s.
Many of the original homes in this neighborhood were built as three bedroom, one bath properties. One interesting feature of this neighborhood is that you won’t often find properties with basements.
Over the years, these homes have been renovated and rooms added on to some create four and five bedroom homes - with extra baths in most renovated units. The first homes had no trees (trees and crops don't grow well together); planting yielded large Oak, Tulip and other varieties of trees that made the area more desirable to live in. Now, the growth of trees hides the fact that this area was once prime farm land. The area prides itself on the mature Oak and Tulip Trees that dot the landscape throughout Pimmit Hills.
You’ll find lots of charming, well-kept homes within Pimmit Hills. Lawns are green and mature trees fill yards with plenty of shade. As each home is renovated, it removes the 'cookie-cutter' feel that this neighborhood once had. Now the houses are as unique as the people living in them. You can find homes that retain the 50s charm, and homes that totally scream "modern design."
As a neighborhood in the midst of transition, this neighborhood has a variety of homes for sale that are perfect for Northern Virginia homebuyers with a variety of real estate needs.
Homebuyers can sometimes get good deals on homes in this subdivision that need some work. Sometimes, homebuyers renovate these “fixer-uppers” and do additions, and sometimes they tear these properties down completely and put up larger, new construction homes.
With more than 1,600 homes, Pimmit Hills is a large community that provides quick access to Washington DC. Due to a lack of a Homeowner's Association, the neighborhood has plenty of character, yet residents plan plenty of community wide events similar to neighborhoods that are governed by an HOA. The neighborhood is in the midst of a transition, as several older, smaller homes are being replaced with new, larger homes. With a variety of dining, shopping, and entertainment options, Pimmit Hills VA is a great place to live.
Without an HOA, residents often showcase their creativity and character in their front yards. Beautiful flowers and even an old tree trunk made into an amazing grizzly bear are just a few of the things you will see while driving around this neighborhood. In addition, the Pimmit Hills Citizen's Association (PHCA) frequently puts on fun activities, such as the annual Pimmit Hills Day celebration, Halloween parade, and the Christmas Parade of Lights.

These studio to 3 bedroom homes range in size from super small (under 600 sq ft) to luxurious (over 3000 sq ft.)
