On a six-acre plot adjacent to the historic Snickersville Turnpike stands this stunning, four-bedroom Colonial model with visual and locational appeal aplenty, and it's available to own for $850,000.

Surrounded by tranquil, western Loudoun farmland and backed by a splendid view of the Blue Ridge, the property gives residents a storybook setting to come home to that's an easy, 10-minute drive from Purcellville's quaint yet commerce-filled downtown. The kids need travel no more than 15 minutes to the nearest Loudoun County Public Schools facility, and commuters will enjoy the home's rough equidistance to Routes 7 and 50.

The house, in harmony with its verdant surroundings, has inherent beauty all its own, charmingly punctuated by white paneling and blue shutters for a convincingly classical look. 

"Architecturally, it's just a gem," listing agent John Constant told the Times-Mirror. "It has what I would call perfect balance, because when you look at it from the front, it truly does look almost exactly symmetrical."

Beyond the exterior appeal, the home's 4,143-square-foot floor plan offers what Constant calls "the perfect blend between having enough space for your family but not having that wasted space that so many homes have." From the two-story foyer and the adjacent, column-flanked dining room to the heavily windowed family room — which includes a lovely brick fireplace — every bit of space carries loads of potential without being overbearing or expendable.

The kitchen, complete with a full array of built-in appliances and centered around a seating-ready center island, is paired with a breakfast nook where the kids can take care of homework while enjoying what Constant touts as the best views in the home. "The part that's great about the kitchen and the breakfast nook is that all of it faces the mountains. You've got these great views of the Blue Ridge and the sunsets," he said.

Also on the main floor is the owner's suite, attached to a large, tiled bathroom with a spa bathtub and glassed-in shower, as well as a large walk-in closet. The three other bedrooms are upstairs, each conveniently attached to a bathroom. There's an abundance of storage space in the unfinished third-floor attic and the massive, four-car garage, while the finished space above the latter can serve as a home office, game room or a number of other purposes. Finally, the unfinished basement would provide a playground for the owner's inner contractor.

"Besides the fact that this home is very well-maintained, it also has the potential for the next owner to put their fingerprint on it," Constant said.

So let me get this right, this house is built with cheap vinyl siding, has bathroom tile work from the 1990's, oak cabinets that fit right in the 1970-80s, and sits all the way out in western Loudoun. Yet they can sell for that price? Did I miss something?
