This custom-built retreat sits on 4 acres just outside Hillsboro, with almost 4,000 square feet of living space spread across a single level. The four-bedroom home is currently listed at $1 million.

"The flow of the house is really lovely," listing agent Gwen Pangle told the Times-Mirror. "I think being on one level is a real selling feature."

Constructed in 2008, this stately, rambler-style abode features a pleasantly symmetrical façade covered with sharp, white-painted siding, dark blue shutters, French doors and large windows. This exterior refinement is also evident in the rear of the home, where a spacious deck leads to a stone patio and a shaded pavilion.

The contained, but seating-friendly front porch, is lined by a quartet of simple columns, leading into the foyer, which offers glistening black tile floors. Eleven-foot ceilings loom over not just this area but nearly the entire home, continuing into the adjacent sitting room and family room. Hardwoods of varying tone and texture fill much of the home's living space.

In the family room, one will find spiffy shelves and cabinetry, which flank a stone highlight wall and an iron furnace. The adjoining kitchen boasts a bounty of light-colored wood cabinetry, stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops, as well as a center island with room for bar-style seats and a matching work area. A breakfast nook sits on one side of the kitchen while the formal dining room is accessible from the other.

Among the home's sleeping quarters is the carpeted, light-filled owner's suite, which includes walk-out access to the back deck. The accompanying bathroom has two separate vanities, which sit opposite a tile shower, an enclosed water closet and a soaking bath with a window looking out onto the property. A threshold between the two vanities leads into a massive walk-in closet.

Three more generously sized bedrooms are in the residential portion of the home, as well as a large laundry room and a large work area with built-in desks and shelving. Elsewhere on the property, a detached, four-car garage will serve as a haven for auto-lovers. It also includes a finished, climate-controlled space that is currently set up as a music studio, though it could easily serve as an entertainment room, home gym or another function.

Finally, Pangle said this western Loudoun home has no problem with internet connectivity and is located conveniently close to many of the region's wineries and breweries.

"There's probably 15 or so wineries and breweries right around the house," she said. "There's always something to do."
