Just 12.5 miles from Quantico and less than 45 miles from Washington, DC, the Embrey Mill® community is a favorite location for many military families who are relocating to Stafford County. While it can be hard to say goodbye to friends and family in your hometown, we strive to make you feel at home. Embrey Mill's high military population (67% to be exact!) will make your transition to living in Stafford County even easier with the support of military residents who have been exactly where you are. Make friends the day you settle in through the many opportunities Embrey Mill offers, including community events and get together throughout the year.
Both Embrey Mill and Stafford County offer benefits for military members and their families including homebuilder incentives and landscaping services. We want you to be proud to call our community your home base.
Deployed? We'll take care of mowing your grass while you're away.
That's right - each of Embrey Mill's home builders offer special incentives to military members and their families. Whether you need support covering your closing costs, extra design credits, or a special discount with our "Hometown Hero" program, we make sure you're taken care of from the moment you say yes to calling Embrey Mill your new home through your stay with us.
Along with home builder incentives, landscaping services are also offered for families who have deployed military members. While you're away, we will take care of cutting, edging, and air blowing your lawn, making sure it's in great shape for when you return back to your Stafford County home base. We want to do our part in supporting all of our military families and feel that something as simple as landscaping will take unneeded stress away from you, making your deployment and arrival back home run smoothly.
Currently we are stationed at the Pentagon, and are in the process of retiring. We wanted to upgrade from our townhouse to a single-family home. We looked in our area as we love Stafford. With our three daughters and our mom rounding out our family, my wife and I love the focus on community at Embrey Mill. There is a deliberate and purposeful attention to community that shows in the design, the activities and the neighborhood. I haven’t even moved in yet, and I have met my neighbors. We have gone to the café and explored the gym and pool areas. This environment is exactly what I want for my family; a neighborhood-based community.
Our experience so far has been nothing less than OUTSTANDING! Memorable and delightful. Particularly the Integrity Homes builder whom we chose. They have been so kind, helpful, and informative. The homes and the environment are great, but the quality of the people I have worked with through this process have really sold me on the fact that my family made a great decision buying at Embrey Mill!
My wife and I have searched for years, not just for the right home, but the right community to raise our family. I am absolutely sure we found it with the Embrey Mill® community. As a Veteran of the U.S. Army, we chose Embrey Mill because we absolutely love the attention to detail in the community—the café and pool, the playground and fields, the outdoor grill and walking trails, the shade trees and manicured lawns.
We had looked at many, many homes and developments over the past three years and none of them compared to Embrey Mill in their priority towards community development. I sincerely want to thank Newland Communities for their effort to plan and design such a wonderful community.
Having been previously stationed in Camp Lejeune, NC, and now in Fredericksburg, I heard about Embrey Mill from my Real Estate Agent and was immediately drawn to the ideal location, amenities, and craftsmanship of the homes. I’d certainly recommend the Embrey Mill community to other service members. The location is away from a lot of the hustle and bustle, but right up the road if you need to head north or south. Really, I couldn’t be happier.
There are plenty of resources available for Stafford County active duty military members, but what about veterans?
