With its original section constructed circa 1840, this five-bedroom Colonial model offers buyers their own little piece of Loudoun history for $749,000.

Placed in the heart of downtown Hamilton, this listing benefits from close proximity to a number of local amenities while remaining largely private, thanks to its distance from the road and dense surrounding trees.

"A family with young school-aged children may find the location very appealing due to its location within walking distance to both Hamilton Elementary School and the Hamilton Park," listing agent Judy McHenry said. In addition, Blue Ridge Middle School and Loudoun Valley High School are both less than 10 minutes away by car.

The 3,553-square-foot home has enjoyed several recent upgrades, lending it a contemporary feel that doesn't rob it of its historic feel.

"Many of the windows are original as well as the pine floors on the upper level and, the trim work and wood detail has been refinished over the years to match that of the time period," McHenry said.

Among the more modern features on display is the strikingly warm, custom-knotted Brazilian Cherry hardwood flooring that greets visitors in the entryway, which leads directly into a sitting room with a stone fireplace.

On the other side of the entryway sits a library with built-in bookshelves and drawers, thoroughly illuminated during the daytime thanks to the skylights above, prompting McHenry to call it "a great place to enjoy the morning reading with a cup of coffee." The kitchen, fully renovated in 2015, features stainless-steel appliances and opens into a formal dining room with access to a private rear patio.

With five bedrooms, this model can accommodate larger families as well as those anticipating frequent guests. One bedroom with its own full bathroom is located downstairs, while the other four can be found on the upper level, including a master bedroom with new carpeting. The master bath comes complete with a claw-footed tub, a glassed-in shower, built-in shelves and its own balcony.

Unlike many historic homes, this listing boasts a fully finished basement, which is easily accessible from the upstairs kitchen and has slate flooring, a kitchenette and a fireplace. It also has a private exterior entrance, making it suitable for an au pair suite or guest suite.

Other conveniences include a two-car garage with new doors, recently-added siding and exterior paint and modern Runtal Radiators spread throughout the floor plan.
