Welcome to The Orchard! First time offering of this stunning 1950’s brick home located on over 4 1/2 acres on the West end of the historic village of Middleburg. It was designed by George Howe of Washington DC and built by renowned master builder W.J. Hanback who built many area homes to include several for the Mellon’s, the recently sold “Oakendale” and even the Trinity Episcopal Church in Upperville.
What is most unique is that this large parcel is actually “in town”. The house features 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, charming eat-in kitchen, spacious living room with a fireplace, a dining area and an attached screened porch. The combination living and dining room have two large bay windows overlooking a flagstone terrace and the vast lawn area behind with a large pond. Also on this floor is a Den and a full bath – which could also be used as a 1st floor bedroom. To one side of the kitchen is a mudroom and laundry with a side entrance. Gorgeous details include a spiral staircase, built-in bookshelves throughout, 2 fireplaces and hardwood floors.
The lower level is fully finished with space for an exercise room and a separate family room with a brick fireplace. 2 storage closets, the mechanical room and a walk-in cedar closet complete that level. Off one side of the house is a fenced vegetable garden and extensive garden beds surround the house. Even more remarkable are the mature specimen trees that dot the lawns to include: English Beech, Pin Oak, Magnolia, Willow Oak, Weeping Cherry and American Hollys. The property now lies adjacent to the National Sporting Library & Museum. Easily walk to shops, post office, restaurants and more. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to live on over 4 1/2 acres within walking distance to the center of town!
