The Land Trust of Virginia (LTV) recently announced that a 107-acre property on Hillsboro road owned by Chuck Kuhn, owner of JK Land Holdings and JK Moving Services, has been placed in conservation easement.
“Furthering the density of conserved land in western Loudoun County was central to the mission behind our founding in 1992,” said Sally Price, executive director of LTV in a prepared statement. “We are grateful this easement creates a buffer around Purcellville to help prevent additional development sprawl.”
The property, which is located near the town of Purcellville, has more than a half mile of frontage on Allder School Road, 760 feet of frontage on Hillsboro Road and 2,115 feet of frontage on Short Hill Road, according to a release from LTV.
Most of the property features “Prime Farmland” or “Farmland of Statewide Importance,” the release states.
There are 15.6 acres of forest cover and one small pond near the southern boundary. The pond is considered a “Ponded” wetland — recognized, and designated as such by the National Wetlands Inventory of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The property is in the watersheds of Catoctin Creek, the Potomac River, and the Chesapeake Bay.
The Hillsboro Road property is the 216th easement completed by the Land Trust of Virginia. For more information, visit landtrustva.org.
