About Cobbs Grove
In 1918 James and Ellen Cobb left Cobbdale, the family home in North Carolina, to purchase an 1860’s farmhouse and 100 acres in the Town of Fairfax, Virginia. Until 1947, there were orchards and a farm on the property. Following World War II, there was a tremendous need for new homes in Northern Virginia as the Federal Government grew and veterans returned from the War. Norman and Mavis Cobb, son and daughter of James and Ellen, acted to meet this need by subdividing the farm and called the new community Cobbdale, “Country-Home Sites of One Half Acre or More”. Mavis remained in the house at 3500 Chain Bridge Road and Norman built his own house for his family next door. Recently, the original family home (currently owned by a member of the Cobb family) received extensive renovations and an addition. Further subdivision of the property is prevented by the Deed for Cobbs Grove.
Cobbs Grove has many benefits: a protected enclave with outstanding convenience to transportation, employment, shopping and schools; excellent City of Fairfax services and low real estate taxes; carefully chosen house sites on spacious lots; restrictive covenants to ensure home design and construction integrity; and the guidance of a custom builder with nearly 60 years’ history of commitment to meeting clients’ needs and fulfilling their dreams. Home sites of this caliber and location are a vanishing resource.
