With strikingly contemporary architecture, a luxurious pool area and a densely forested, 3-acre lot, this four-bedroom Leesburg home is wholly unique compared to everything else on the local market. It just went on the market for $728,500.
“It’s true, vacation-style living,” listing agent Mary Roberge told the Times-Mirror.
Constructed in 1984, this house’s heavily rectangular, raised-ranch style lends a late-20th century stylishness, while the verdant, rolling lawn and surrounding forestry evoke the feeling of an off-the-grid mountain retreat. However, it and the rest of the Goose Creek Farms neighborhood are not so remote that travel to some of Loudoun County’s cultural hotspots is an inconvenience; Leesburg is roughly 20 minutes by car to the northeast, while Middleburg is equidistant in the opposite direction.
The long, gravel drive carries guests upward to the wood-paneled exterior of the entry level, which includes a two-car attached garage and a detached carport, perfect for protecting a boat or another vehicle from the elements. Step from the tiered front stoop into the high-ceilinged living area, and you can enjoy an unencumbered view of the trees that border the lot courtesy of a long row of a dozen, grill-less windows.
Dark, newly-installed hardwoods cover the family room and dining area, the former of which includes a wood-burning furnace. The tiled kitchen — which sits in plain view of the rest of the main level’s open floor plan — features a granite-topped breakfast bar and an abundance of counter space for however many cooks each family meal might require.
A similar view to that featured in the living area can be found in the entry-level master bedroom, a gratifying retreat for anyone who loves to start and end the day with a glimpse of the outside world. Equally deluxe is the master bath, in which the owners can walk through a fogged-glass door to discover a grand, two-person shower with its own set of bay windows. The master suite and the two other bedrooms on the main level each has its own walk-in closet, while a second full bath serves the two smaller bedrooms.
“Having a main-level bedroom is huge, because there’s a shortage of that in the county,” Roberge said.
The lower level sits at grade and is fully finished, providing ample room to entertain guests when the outdoors prove less than ideal. Past the carpeted rec area — which is itself perfect for billiards and includes another wood-burning furnace — sits a full, enclosed bar area with a fridge, sink, microwave and dishwasher, plus cabinets galore. However, if the day’s sunny, one can simply step from the basement onto the back patio and meander down to the pool, or up a winding staircase to the main-level deck to find a large hot tub. Adjacent to the pool sits the pool house, which Roberge said functions well as an office or an overflow sleeping quarters.
