Entrepreneurs seeking office space in Fauquier may want to consider Vint Hill for their address. Just minutes west of Prince William and Fauquier County line is the quaint live-work-play village of Vint Hill. Ten miles east of Warrenton, the former military post is an exceptional mixed-use community.
A charming collection of independently owned businesses now calls Vint Hill their home. Included are several boutique retail shops, restaurants, a winery, a brewery, an inn, a community theater, a pool, a recreation facility, daycare, ball fields, and a dog park… with loads of green space to spread out.
In 2015, Fauquier County’s Department of Economic Development opened an enterprise center, an entrepreneurial hub that offers business owners office space, education, and access and connections to small business resources. It is conveniently located behind the Vint Hill post office, at the corner of Aiken and Kennedy, caddy-corner from the dog park.
Currently, the available offices range from 65 square feet to more than 200 square feet (available as a suite with a private entrance). Interior offices face the front of the single-level building and each has a window.
New and startup businesses and entrepreneurs may be best suited for these offices. Small business services like networking groups, educational events, and small business counseling services are included.
Also included are the shared areas such as the lobby/sitting area, bathrooms, kitchen, and conference room, all utilities including WIFI, and a networked printer/copier/scanner. Supplies for the kitchen and bathrooms are provided.
Numerous leases are available for 6- and 12-months:
- Single/multiple office spaces
- Co-working leases
- Virtual leases (a mailing address that includes conference room usage of up to 10 hours/mo)

Did you know? Originally established as Vint Hill Farms Station, the 696-acre facility was built in 1942. A secure location, it served as a cryptography school, and as a refitting station for signal units. It would later become the home to warfare equipment and systems maintenance, other signals intelligence, and electronic warfare units worldwide. A shift in its mission would offer research, development, and support of intelligence and electronic warfare for the US and its foreign allies in the 70s until the military post closed in the early 90s.
