Description

 

Step back in time with a visit to this charming historic home located in the heart of Leesburg’s Historic District!  It is very close to town amenities such as shopping, fine dining, the Tally Ho Theatre, Ida Lee Recreation Center, Rust Library, town biking and walking paths, and major commuter routes.

This home dates from 1860 and is made distinctive by its simple colonial styling, its white picket fence, the swing on the front wrap porch and the expansive landscaped yard!  Enter the home through the inviting foyer and proceed into the charming living room. The central focal point of this intimate space is the brick fireplace and mantle, the built-in cabinets, crown molding, recessed lighting, and hardwood floors. Continue into the large dining room to find a perfect space for entertaining family and friends. This room also provides a brick fireplace with mantle and access to the second level by a separate staircase. Just beyond the dining room is the kitchen which has been tastefully updated with white cottage-style cabinets, sparkling granite counters, and a built-in microwave. Enjoy creating meals on the gas range!  There is space enough for a table and chairs to allow you to enjoy breakfast or a cup of tea as you look out over the beautifully landscaped backyard!  Just off the kitchen is a separate laundry room that could also serve as a pantry.  The main level also offers a bedroom with built-in shelves, a full bathroom, and a separate side entry with access to the porch and side yard.

From the front foyer, continue upstairs to find a large landing with a window overlooking the garden. There are two bedrooms on this level both with wood floors and a full bathroom.  One bedroom offers 3 closets!  The other offers built-in shelving and a large closet. 

Outside, in addition to the charming covered wrap-around front porch, you will find a peaceful setting in the lovely gardens accented with a trellis, brick walkways, and brick patio. Enjoy summer meals on your large deck (with TREX decking) just off the kitchen with immediate access to the backyard. 

For those with a green thumb, the large yard provides an excellent space for gardening.  For those who are looking for a space to explore their hobbies, the spacious shed provides electricity, as well as additional storage for garden tools and more. There is an in-ground sprinkler system.  A large cellar also provides additional storage space.

Improvements to the home include; updated windows, roof, cellar vapor barrier replaced in 2013, dual-zoned heating and air conditioning (1-AC unit replaced 2017), hot water heater replaced in 2014, washing machine replaced in 2017, and microwave replaced 2015.
