About J.L. Albrittain Inc.


J. L. Albrittain, Inc. is a privately owned company founded by James S. and John L. Albrittain.  John has been active in the development and construction of residential real estate in Northern Virginia since 1981.  A majority of the employees have been with the company for many years, providing a continuity not many companies can boast of.

The company builds new custom homes and also involves itself in other activities, including the acquisition, subdivision and development of properties into finished lots, which are then held for construction inventory.   The company has constructed over 400 new homes and developed hundreds of finished lots for sale to other builders.

J L  Albrittain Inc  maintains its own carpentry, concrete, masonry and land development crews and has used many of the same subcontractors and suppliers over the years.  This ensures consistency of quality in materials and workmanship in the construction of its homes.

Recent construction projects include (i) Chain Bridge Terrace, eight luxury single family attached homes; (ii) Lorcom Ridge with seven custom luxury single family detached homes, as well as (iii) several individual custom homes and renovations in McLean and Arlington.  Many innovative features have been incorporated into its homes, such as elevators, movie rooms and car lifts.  Hallmarks of this prestigious builder include opulent millwork and handsome architectural detailing, as well as a willingness to permit purchasers and owners to be involved in nearly every aspect of the design process.
