Though replete with modern updates, this 5,296-square-foot Waterford home has lost none of its classic, Colonial-style flair, and it's available to own for $850,000.

"It's a gorgeous property. Pretty low-maintenance, really, even though it's all gardened and pretty," listing agent Ben Heisler told the Times-Mirror.

A modestly forested, 4.1-acre plot — which has received certification from the Audubon at Home program — foots this property and sits surrounded by gorgeous northern Loudoun farmland. Commuters who spend their days enveloped in the din of city living will enjoy coming home to this tranquil, largely secluded retreat, not to mention the relative closeness to Route 15. With Waterford Elementary School a mere 1.5 miles away, those with little ones will surely find comfort in the conveniently brief morning drive.

While at no shortage of windows, the red-brick façade faces a row of trees lining the street and thus enjoys plenty of privacy. Nevertheless, natural light runs unencumbered throughout the main level, fills the two-story foyer and highlights slick hardwood flooring. A sitting room to the left of the entryway makes for a pleasant spot to enjoy either some morning coffee or evening wine. Here visitors encounter the first of the main level's two handsome fireplaces, this one bordered with marble and topped with a finely-carved mantel.

The second fireplace — this one faced with red brick — sits in the family room at the opposite corner of the main level and is one of several charming highlights in the home's living area. Situated smartly between the family room and dining room, the kitchen is lined with stylish, white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, and centers around a large island with an open-flame stovetop and room for bar-style seating. This area also allows access to a sizable, seating-friendly back deck.

Four bedrooms sit atop the main staircase, the owner's suite particularly enviable with its two walk-in closets, sitting room and luxury bathroom featuring a corner tub and walled-in shower. One of the other bedrooms also enjoys a private full bath while the other two share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, and all upstairs residents can enjoy being able to take a trip to the laundry room without even descending the stairs.

Entertainment space abounds on the lower level, which includes a massive recreation room, a full bathroom and an abundance of built-in shelf space. Finally, this level features walk-out access to one of the property's standout features: a large, heated backyard pool complete with a hot tub, waterslide and diving board, all flanked by a charming, easily convertible guest house.
