Located in Ashburn, Virginia, Belmont Country Club is ideally situated close to the Dulles Tech Corridor, along Belmont Ridge Road between Route 7 and the Dulles Greenway, about 35 miles west of Washington, D.C. Commuters are just ten minutes from Sterling, a growing hi-tech business hub in the metropolitan area, five minutes from historic and scenic Leesburg, the County seat, and just seventeen minutes from Reston, another location for working professionals and businesses. With the Greenway so close, world travelers can come in and out of Dulles International Airport very easily.
Part of the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad trail runs along Belmont Country Club. Where the old W&OD Trail meets the present Belmont Ridge Road, the railroad’s former Belmont Station, long since vanished, once stood.
The 2,158 residences of Belmont Country Club are now completely sold out. Built by Toll Brothers, a firm extolling quality materials and superior design for over 40 years, these luxury dwellings set the standard for premier gated country club living, including everything from condominiums and townhomes to carriage and estate homes. This variety creates a diversity that is appealing to a broad range of homeowners. It’s not a style that works for everyone, but for many, it’s a perfect choice.
Loudoun County Public Schools offer superior educational programs that rank with the best in Virginia and in the nation, providing well-run programs for Gifted Students, Vocational and Alternative Education, as well as Special Education. Near these Belmont neighborhoods, Ashburn is the seat for the administrative offices of the top-ranked Loudoun County Public Schools. Elementary children from Belmont Country Club attend Newton-Lee Elementary in Ashburn. Middle school students (6th - 8th) take the bus to the north side of Route 7 to Belmont Ridge Middle School, worth the trip because it is a “National School to Watch.” A majority of high schoolers attend Stone Bridge High, while a few students, due to districting issues, are finishing at Broad Run.
One of the neighborhood’s peak features is the 18-hole championship Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. Another is the 38,000 sq. foot state-of-the-art clubhouse, the fully renovated historic Belmont Manor House, a stately mansion built in 1799 by Ludwell Lee, whose father, Richard Henry Lee, signed the Declaration of Independence. The house is one of the most refined examples of Federal-style architecture in the Middle Atlantic Region and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Sitting on the highest point in eastern Loudoun with panoramic views, the restored mansion-now-clubhouse with concierge service features a magnificent library, casual and fine dining, a parlor, conservatory, and an adult pool. The Manor Club House is available for use by members only. All residents belong to the Country Club, a separate fee from their HOA assessment, and as such have access to the Club House. Bottom, right: A separate Recreation Center in the community hosts a fitness facility, a 25-meter pool with diving and children’s pool, outdoor tennis, soccer, basketball, and a playground for children, as well as the HOA management offices.
Edward Zier, President of the Association’s Board of Directors chose Belmont Country Club after living in nearby Potomac, Maryland. Zier said, “My wife and I found the combination of the Country Club amenities, the intimate layout of the various villages, and the proximity of the community to main transportation arteries to be an excellent value and a terrific situation for our active lifestyle.”
MaryPat Imlah, a resident of Belmont Country Club for the past ten years, and publisher of the community newsletter, Belmont News, said, “When we moved to Belmont, we had three young children. Safety was a major concern and the idea of a gated community held strong appeal. We discovered the residents to be so warm and welcoming. With so many amenities within the community, Belmont offered a grand opportunity for our children to have safe, ‘small town’ environment to play in while being in close proximity to all the Loudoun County has to offer. Part of our HOA dues includes lawn maintenance and that gives us more time for family on weekends!”
Imlah talked more about the volunteerism and compassion that is active in her community. “We moved in a week and a half before 9/11. One of our residents, a father of young children, Chris Newton, was on the plane that crashed that day into the Pentagon. The outpouring from this community for the surviving family was ongoing and deeply felt. Another Leesburg resident, Dong Chul Lee, was working at the Pentagon the same day, and lost his life. That’s why the elementary school in our district bears the name ‘Newton-Lee,’ to honor those two men. Of course, everyone felt the impact of that day, not just our community. But from living here for the last ten years, I see firsthand how amazing people in Belmont volunteer for all kinds of causes in our County. People have an attitude about ‘country club living’ but what I see is a lot of kindness and affluence being put into action to help others. That’s what I love about living here.”
