Lake Manassas, Gainesville is a gorgeous lakeside gated community is definitely in my top 3 picks for great communities in the Gainesville area. The location is hidden and not so easy to find, which is great for those who like privacy. Additionally, the landscaping is immaculate, the lake offers spectacular views, the placement and styles of homes is varied, and the feeling of security well appreciated. Having it located right behind the Shops at Stonewall, recently purchased by the Peterson Companies, is perfect. And there’s so much more.
