The sharp modernity and accessibility of this five-bed, five-bath model — which has been listed for $825,000 — are enough to make anyone want to call it home.

The property, tucked neatly into the Grove at Willowsford neighborhood, is ideally placed for a growing family, with the local public schools and Aldie’s historic downtown all within a 10-minute drive. While the surrounding area is developing quickly, it maintains a healthy balance of scenery and farmland, not to mention five miles of nearby walking trails so that residents won’t feel disconnected from Loudoun’s famously breathtaking outdoor ambiance.

"The community itself is a real draw to folks moving in from out-of-state, because they appreciate all the amenities that are within the community," realtor Diane Northern said. "Even people who are living in the community already will be interested in the house, that's how much they like it."

Perched atop sleek stone footing and lined with bungalow-style columns, the covered front porch — which Northern says is perfect to "put a swing on" — aptly precludes the warmth and simple charm of the main level that lies beyond the French front door. Wide-plank hardwood floors cover the entire first floor, leading guests through the pillared entryway and into a two-story family room with a soaring stone fireplace and high, coffered ceiling.

Eye-catching whitewashed cabinetry and granite countertops border the kitchen, which boasts stainless steel appliances, a rustic tile backsplash and a large island ideal for seating, nicely complimented by a quaint breakfast area where the kids can knock out homework and the whole family can enjoy a game night. Immediately behind sits a lovely sunroom that’s windowed on three sides, ideal for getting in a bit of reading or an afternoon snooze.

A walk up the stairs and along the balcony overlooking the living room ends at the master suite which, with its lighted tray ceiling and dual closets, makes for a pleasant place to retire at the end of a long day. Attached is the stately master bath, floored with large tile that flows craftily into the glassed-in shower and luxuriously large tub. Down the hall are three more bedrooms, two of which have full baths, while another bedroom and full bath await in the spacious finished basement.

Speaking of which, the lower level is just one part of what makes the residence a prime entertainment destination. With its open design, a large bar area, playroom and storage area, the space is perfect for either hosting weekend parties or housing guests. For the warmer months, the back patio is just as fit for festivities: With a stone fire pit and plenty of room for seating, it’s ready to host your next back-yard barbecue.
