Colonial charm and sleek modernity intertwine at Leesburg’s Greenland Farm, a 4,773-square-foot, 12-plus-acre estate dating back to 1790, and it’s ready to be yours for just under $1.7 million.
“You feel like you’re back in time, but you’re three minutes from the Greenway and three minutes from downtown Leesburg,” listing agent Eva Weber said.
Seated at the end of a regal circular driveway, the four-bedroom house has enjoyed its share of upgrades over the centuries, yet its transportative, antique aesthetic remains intact. The white-brick façade includes a welcoming covered porch and a two-car garage, all topped with a recently repainted metal roof and new gutters.
Upon entering the foyer — which is flanked by a library with built-in shelves and a sitting room featuring a decorative fireplace — visitors are greeted by wide-plank wood flooring that covers the main and second levels. Beyond the sitting room lies a chef-inspired gourmet kitchen, studded with sleek, stainless-steel appliances and conveniently placed between a breakfast area and dining room. Also on the main floor are a light-flooded sun room and family room, both of which provide exquisite views of the surrounding farmland, as well as an ADA-accessible guest suite with two cedar closets and its own private bathroom.
Upstairs, the owner’s suite includes an oversized, separate retreat and dressing area lined with built-in dressers and granite countertops. And with custom tiling, wainscoting and a glass-doored, walk-in shower, the master bathroom is truly a thing to be envied. Two more bedrooms complete the third floor, and a den on the next level could easily make for a guest bed.
The surrounding land is an animal lover’s playground, with a two-story barn — home to six horse stalls and two chicken coops — sitting at the northwest end of the property. A scenic pond makes for a great spot for birdwatching while sipping your morning coffee or after-dinner glass of wine. And for the motorhead in your life, there’s a 2012-built “metal shop” featuring three bay doors, two hydraulic auto lifts and a water hydrant, as well as a five-bay garage in the next building over.
