Updated Antique Stone Farmhouse in Virginia is Surrounded by Beauty – DIRT > Virginia

Since the mid-17th century, a lovely home called Hearthstone Manor has snuggled just outside the Appalachian Mountains near the small town of Round Hill in Loudoun County, Virginia. The historic country estate has been renewed, redesigned and renovated to meet today’s requirements. It includes 24 acres and a three bedroom, four and a half bath main house offering a comfortable 4,237 square feet.

Of course, with age comes great features, including fireplaces, stone floors and walls, original hardwood floors and exposed hand-hewn beams. Outside is an old ice house and several other outbuildings including an old barn converted into a two bedroom guest house and a detached garage with attic. The sale includes a third house that can be incorporated into the property which is rented out for additional income. Modern amenities include new utilities and bathrooms, replaced windows, handsome Shaker built-in cupboards in the kitchen and a new standing seam metal roof.

Just past the fountain and beyond the porch is the living room with a marble accented corner fireplace; The adjoining morning room also includes a corner fireplace and leads to the covered back porch. Also on the ground floor is a modern kitchen with exposed stone walls and floors (not to mention boldly chosen tomato red cabinets!), a dining room showcasing the house’s massive original range cooker, and a huge conservatory that looks out over the tranquil, rolling acres of the property. Two large stone patios lead off the kitchen and conservatory. The lower level with lounge, bathroom, wine room, laundry and additional storage also has stone floors with radiant heat for comfort.

The second floor includes the master suite with fireplace, huge walk-in closet and marble bathroom. Also upstairs, a covered porch and another bedroom or family room with fireplace and powder room. Above this is the loft fully dedicated to a large bedroom with full bathroom and ample storage. Outside, stone pathways, walls and patios make for an epic garden area, where the manicured gardens and abundant wildlife around the pond add atmosphere.

While Hearthstone enjoys rural privacy, it is close to northern Virginia’s many hunting clubs, wineries, wildlife sanctuaries, historic townships and country clubs. Nearby Round Hill has quaint residences, shops, and restaurants, while proximity to the Appalachian Trail means hikers flock to the area.

Hearthstone Manor is available through Lisa Thompson at Sotheby’s International Realty for $3.2 million.
