Situated on 11-plus ares of farmland, this four-bedroom Round Hill home evokes 18th-century classicism inside and out, and it just entered the market for $1.139 million.

The open countryside of Middleburg and the historic village of Unison set the backdrop for this property, with downtown Purcellville and the nature-filled offerings of Bluemont within easy driving distance. While its largely symmetrical design — topped with Tudor-style brick and a standing seam metal roof — honors American Colonial architecture of the Chesapeake region, the house is less than 30 years old and boasts plenty of modern amenities, including a three-car garage.

"It's a new old home — a newer home but one that's reflective of years ago in Virginia," listing agent Jack Ferguson told the Times-Mirror. He added that the surrounding farmland "would definitely appeal to someone who wants a peaceful kind of setting for their home."

Inside, all three stories harbor design elements that further the home's classical visual sensibilities. Four fireplaces, backed with either stone or brick, are scattered throughout the house, two of them featuring mantels made of chestnut salvaged from a local, historic log cabin. Detailed crown moldings top the main floor's 10-foot walls, which are footed by oak hardwoods that extend through much of the level.

With enough shelf space to house a small library, the ground-floor office offers an ideal space for the family bookworm and is flooded with natural light thanks to its large bay windows, a feature shared by the adjacent living room. Similarly luminous is the kitchen, which includes several industry-grade appliances including a deluxe Vulcan stove and warming drawer — a rarity for a personal residence.

Four spacious upstairs bedrooms include the second-floor master suite, which boasts an enormous walk-in closet and a brick fireplace with plenty of seating room in front of it. The attached bathroom is floored with richly-colored tile and allows for access to an outdoor deck overlooking the back yard. Two of the three remaining bedrooms are on the third floor and provide perhaps the most spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. Finally, if the home's 4,636 square feet isn't enough to house all your belongings, a 1000-square-foot attic with electricity sits atop the garage.
