On a half-acre lot in the heart of Virginia’s Hunt Country sits this two-bedroom Middleburg cottage, boasting a sharp design and single-floor sensibility. It’s currently listed at $610,000.
Surrounded by western Loudoun’s trademark blend of rolling farmland and thick forestry, the property offers a bucolic getaway from the bustling busyness that characterizes much of northern Virginia. Still, the shopping, dining and other attractions of downtown Middleburg are only nine minutes by car, and Route 50 is a mere two turns away.
“People come to visit all the nearby wineries, retail shops, and great restaurants like Red Fox Inn, Best Thai Kitchen, and Red Bar Sushi,” listing agent Paul Clausen told the Times-Mirror.
The home itself makes the most of its 1,426-square-foot floor plan with a streamlined openness as well as wheelchair mobility. Built only four years ago, the exterior and interior design boasts a modern sharpness, though that doesn’t diminish the pastoral feel of the setting.
Professional landscaping surrounds guests as they arrive up the gravel driveway and park in front of the oversized, detached two-car garage. Residents can greet visitors on the wide front porch, from which one can enjoy scenic views over coffee, wine, appetizers or a good book.
Stepping inside, visitors will immediately have a view of the entire living area thanks to the aforementioned open floor plan. In the corner sits a well-equipped kitchen with quartz countertops, white cabinetry and high-end appliances, from which the hosts can prepare meals while guests kick their feet up in front of a gas fireplace.
Through a doorway next to the kitchen is a window-filled den, perfect for a work-at-home setup, an exercise room or to convert into an additional bedroom. Elsewhere in the living area can be found an enclosed laundry room with built-in cabinets and a small sink.
From the den one can access the first of two owner’s suites, both featuring the dark-colored hardwoods that run through the rest of the home, as well as small, uniquely designed chandeliers hanging overhead. Each bedroom has an en-suite bath with a tiled shower, both of which include a waterfall shower head and one of which is ADA-accessible.
A wood fence surrounds the backyard, where the owners can entertain guests on more temperate days. Here, an isolated stone patio offers an ideal spot for seating, while an in-ground fire pit will keep everyone warm on cooler evenings.
Other special features of the home include a state-of-the-art well water treatment system, though it is also connected to the public septic system. Finally, the future owner will no doubt enjoy the home’s lack of HOA fees.
“With its private well and a public septic system, Newlin Mill is at the crossroads of a country house and a city house,” Clausen said.
