Two hundred years of western Loudoun charm lie within the walls of this unique, three-bedroom Lovettsville home, which was recently listed for $475,000.
“This home is what you have been looking for!” listing agent Michael McConnell said in a prepared statement.
With unique landscaping, a rustic stone foundation and more than 1,400 square feet of living space, the home offers its own irreplicable slice of bucolic living as well as plenty of utility. From the sun-soaked patio to a spiffy kitchen, and all the way up to the nursery, sharp design and modern amenities spruce up the circa-1820 building.
Guests enter from the road up a set of slab steps protruding from the stone wall that fronts the property. These lead to a grassy plateau from which one can ascend either to the aforementioned side patio or to the covered front porch. McConnell said the latter offers views of Catoctin Creek, which runs parallel to the property.
Both doors from the porch lead into the kitchen, the modern sheen of which would lead anyone to guess the home was built yesterday. White cabinets cover both the rear wall and the large center island, which contains a large, bifurcated sink and room for bar seating. The island and the counters are made of polished wood, while a tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances add to the sparkle.
With multi-angular views of the surrounding greenery and a touch of exposed, worn red brick, the family room simultaneously connects occupants to nature, to the home’s history and to one another. Elsewhere on the main level is a bathroom with the washer-dryer included, as well as counter space for folding clothes.
Hardwood floors run throughout the home, including all three upper-level bedrooms. Like the family room that sits below, the owner’s bedroom includes an embedded column of worn building material, an antique touch for an otherwise sharply designed and colored room. A dark green highlight wall with a unique linear wood-panel pattern can be found in the nursery. All bedrooms on this floor share a large bathroom with a spacious tile shower.
A detached garage and shed offer plenty of storage and recreation space apart from the main home. Among the modern touches found on the property are ductless air conditioning units, a new HVAC system, a new roof and HardiePlank siding added in 2015.
