Own a piece of Loudoun County history with this luxurious home once owned by Arthur Godfrey. Overlooking his former estate of Beacon Hill, the extensive property has been listed at $2,195,000.
Arthur Godfrey was a fixture of American TV in the 1950s, but he called Loudoun County home. A private pilot, he was instrumental in building Leesburg Executive Airport, thus the name "Godfrey field." Buried in Leesburg, Godfrey called Loudoun -- and this house -- home.
Stretched over 37 acres with multiple buildings and wide expanses of open land, the property offers elegance and luxury. The house has 10 large bedrooms as well as nine full bathrooms and two half baths. A stunning kitchen has an eat-up island and stainless steal appliances. Multiple seating areas look out over the property, and a windowed hallway connects the original 1912 home to the modern addition.
"The main home has nearly 12,000 square feet," said listing agent Jean Garrell of Garrell Realty. "Although it is definitely upscale, details like exposed beam ceilings, hardwood floors and stone fireplaces add to the comfort."
Outside of the main brick colonial-style house, you'll find two horse barns and a large log building, perfect for events or corporate gatherings. The property also offers mature trees and gorgeous views of the Loudoun countryside.
"This property would make a lovely family home or a bed and breakfast for corporate events," Garrell said. "It's a must-see property with a rich Loudoun history."
