Standard Features


Christopher Companies is building an intimate two home community mere minutes from charming and historic Old Town Fairfax. One of the finest small towns in the metro area to live and play, The City of Fairfax has it all: the fusion of all types of dining options, quaint locally owned shops and big name retailers, rich history around every corner, and a multitude of community activities including a summer arts and music series on the newly constructed Town Green, and a spectacular Independence Day celebration that harkens back to the pomp and circumstance of a bygone age.

Our featured home is our striking “McKinley” model on a generously sized .85 acre lot. Surrounded by mature trees in an established and lovely neighborhood, your new home boasts more than 5,000 square feet of living space on three expansive living levels. The McKinley features 5 bedrooms (and an optional 6th with the First Floor Master option) and 5 ½ bathrooms (and optional 6th), gorgeous hardwoods throughout the main level, and GE Café Series stainless steel chef grade appliances. Other standard choices include granite kitchen and bath counters, LED lights, and ceramic tile in all full bathrooms.

The Christopher Companies’ construction touchstones are unparalleled. We lead the way with our devotion to energy and resource efficiency. We are committed to offering our customers healthy and environmentally friendly homes. All Christopher homes are Energy Star certified, and meet the National Green Building Standard. Sherwood Estates is constructed with Jeld-Wen low-e windows and high efficiency 2 zone HVAC systems.
