This 65-year-old, custom-built home sits on what listing agent Vicky Noufal calls “one of the prettiest lots in Leesburg.” The three-bedroom beauty is currently listed for $1.175 million and includes no HOA fees.
“You have to walk in to experience it, but it feels like a grand, old, historic home,” Noufal said of the 1956-built house.
With dense, verdant landscaping, as well as its placement on a non-thru street across from a large conservation area, this 3.2-acre property enjoys total privacy. Still, it’s only a couple of turns away from Route 7 and just five minutes from downtown Leesburg, meaning some of the best food, beverages and shopping in the county are within arm’s reach.
“It has a very calm, serene feeling when you’re there. It’s quiet and beautiful,” Noufal said.
Red bricks cover the façade, which features one story above ground and another below-grade level. A brick walking path leads guests between the finely-manicured lawn and mature trees to the covered, stone-footed front porch, which — true to the street’s name — offer gorgeous glimpses of the sunrise.
Sand-in-place hardwood floors run from the foyer through most of the main level, including the formal dining room and the living room. Both of these rooms feature 10-foot ceilings, while the latter includes a wood-burning fireplace, 16-inch window panes looking onto the front porch and equally large bay windows that provide calming views of the backyard.
“When you sit there you can literally see the backyard and the front yard all at the same time. It just feels like the kind of place where you’d want to sit all day, read a book and have a cup of tea,” Noufal said.
Several additions were made to the house in 2003, including the kitchen, built by Leesburg’s MacDowell Custom Kitchens. The design elements — cherry cabinets, granite counters, commercial-grade appliances and a bar-style center island — are just a fraction of what makes this space so special; it also includes a “loading zone” for grocery drop-off and a breakfast area looking onto the flower garden in front of the home.
The main-level owner’s suite is a picturesque escape all its own, with the bedroom featuring windows on three walls. A walk-in closet is attached, as well as a private bathroom that includes a glassed-in corner shower with two heads. A second bedroom with ensuite bath, a main-level den with its own wood-burning fireplace and set of bay windows, a mudroom and a laundry room leading to the three-car garage complete the main level.
A large rec room with its own fireplace, a study area and a third bedroom suite with a sitting area and full bath — perfect for in-laws — can be found on the finished lower level. The rec room looks out onto the rear of the property, which also includes a raised deck with access to the kitchen and storage space below. Finally, at the rear of the property there’s a large vegetable garden with raised beds.
“I call it a forever home, because it’s the kind of home where you’d want to have [for] the holidays — Thanksgiving and Fourth of July barbecues,” Noufal said.
