Pimmit Hills

The area that is now Pimmit Hills was primarily farm land until the sub-division was built beginning in 1950. The houses in Pimmit Hills were mostly built during the 1950s for World War II and Korean War veterans and their families. Most of the houses were originally built as three bedroom, one bath dwellings of 833 square feet. George Offutt began construction of the first 500 Pimmit Hills houses in 1950. His Offutt Construction Company completed the first two sections by 1954. Other builders completed sections 3-6, while Offutt built sections 7 & 8 under a different company. The subdivision was fully built out by 1957-58, with 1675 homes on 663 acres. When the homes were first built, many areas were treeless, having been farm fields previously. However, decades later the area is known for its population of large oaks, Tulip trees and other trees.

Current real estate values mirror the rest of northern Virginia, with extreme value appreciation within the last several years.

Several attempts have been made by commercial developers to buy up Pimmit properties and convert them to higher-density housing such as condominiums or town houses, but so far these have been resisted by homeowners and the comprehensive redevelopment plans for the Tysons Corner area contemplates the preservation of the neighborhood as a community of single-family homes. Add-ons to the original houses such as second floors, basements, and same-floor expansions are common. The neighborhood is currently seeing many new homes built and on any given block one can find several tear downs and rebuilds. The trend on tear downs is expected to continue, although the vast majority of the homes remain older houses originally built in the mid-1950s with less than 1000 square feet.
