At the end of a long driveway on the southern edge of Leesburg stands a stately brick Colonial mansion that is newly available to own for $1.35 million.
Though the home — with a towering, sharply symmetrical façade and visually arresting backyard amenities, including a large porch and patio — is replete with aesthetic appeal all its own, listing agent Vicky Noufal said the "best part" of the property is the serene 13-acre plot on which it sits.
"You've got complete privacy. You can see the deer and turkeys and birds. It's a beautiful setting," Noufal told the Times-Mirror.
Surrounded by miles of similarly verdant scenery, this property envelops residents with an impenetrable rural charm while being near commerce and major transportation routes. "You have the feeling of being in the country, and you are, then you can go two-and-a-half miles and get on the toll road, so you can get to downtown Leesburg in five minutes. It's really got the best of both worlds," Noufal said.
Inside, guests are treated to a resplendent welcome in an entryway floored with marble tile, leading to the unique, two-story rear foyer. Such unique design flourishes are evident throughout the 8,000-plus-square-foot floor plan, including the arched entryways and dual gas fireplace that connect the living and dining rooms. Perhaps the most stunning main-level feature is the mammoth kitchen, a nearly 360-degree display of beautiful wood cabinetry, a rustic tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances, all circling a massive center island.
A master bedroom that, per Noufal, "knocks your socks off" sits atop the stairs and boasts numerous luxuries, including a private sitting room with a gas fireplace, a coffee bar and his-and-hers closets. It's connected to an expansive, spa-quality bathroom with a roomy tub, a glassed-in shower and quartz countertops. Three secondary bedroom suites, a laundry room, a study nook and a rear staircase complete the upper level.
Entertainment space abounds in this estate. If the main-level living room and family room begin to overflow, plenty more space is available in the basement, with its large recreation room, wet bar and home theater, as well as two additional bathrooms and a guest bedroom. Finally, the aforementioned outdoor space is made for summer gatherings, with a custom Trex deck, a 2,000-square-foot flagstone patio, a stone fireplace and a pergola-covered hot tub.
