This 4-bed, 3-bathroom home with nearly 4,000 square feet in Purcellville would be ideal for a family that enjoys a neighborly community, according to Heather Walker, a residential specialist with Spear Realty Group. Owners would be able to walk to the Purcellville Library from the home’s community, making it perfect for families with children. The property is listed for $720,000.
The exterior of the home’s two main stories is covered by a stately red brick façade, with a row of four windows on the ground floor and five windows on the second story. Navy blue shutters on the sides of each window contrast against the home’s red brick, and the home’s bright red front door is covered by a portico with white columns and banisters.
Hardwood floors extend throughout the first floor of the home. A sitting area and formal dining room sit at opposite ends of the foyer, which features two white columns near the front door, white wood trim and light yellow walls. A hallway past the dining room leads to the kitchen, and includes a built-in butler’s pantry for added storage space.
The kitchen, which features light green walls, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops opens to a well-lit breakfast room with bay windows. The kitchen sports elegant wooden millwork, and features a four-burner stove set into an island with cabinet space on one side and bar seating on the opposite.
A family room sits adjacent to the kitchen and breakfast room, with a door leading to the home’s backyard. The family room features a gas-burning fireplace, speakers and recessed lights set into the ceiling, and light yellow walls with white wood trim and ceilings.
The home’s ground floor also includes a half-bathroom and an office with a built-in wall-to-ceiling bookcase. The windows on the ground floor feature plantation shutters. And while the home’s front and backyards are small in area, they require little lawn maintenance. The back yard also opens to a common area with a trail, “so you don’t get the feeling that you have no yard,” Walker said.
Common areas on the second floor feature the same hardwood as found on the first. Its four bedrooms feature carpeting, and the owner’s suite includes a bathroom with a lively light blue and silver wallpaper. In addition to a freestanding cabin shower and soaking tub lined with tile, the owner’s bathroom offers a dual vanity with white millwork and countertops.
The home’s basement provides an ideal space for entertaining or exercise and recreation, in addition to housing yet another full bathroom. A door at the far end of the basement opens up to a set of stairs leading outside, next to the home’s detached two-car garage.
Walker said the property is especially well-suited to a family. “It’s got plenty of space for kids, adults. The outdoor space in the back — even though it’s not their yard necessarily, it’s still got space to run. You can walk to the library for story time. It’s definitely kind of a family house.”
