Prime site in Loudoun County listed for $25 million
In fast-growing Loudoun County vast expanses of open space are becoming increasingly hard to find. That’s why developers are expected to take notice of Tamworth Farm, a 511-acre site that has been listed for sale for $25 million by Long & Foster Real Estate’s Leesburg and Purcellville Gateway offices.
Located off Route 15 near Aldie between Leesburg and Gilberts Corner, the country estate comprises 16 individual parcels.
“Tamworth Farm offers long-term opportunities, whether purchased by a global investor, a local executive or a residential builder,” Linda Culbert of Long & Foster, said in a statement. “The expansive acreage offers unmatched privacy, yet the location’s proximity to Dulles Airport and the many businesses and attractions in Loudoun and Fairfax counties make it appealing to homebuyers throughout the Washington, D.C., metro area.”
Opportunities exist for residential, hospitality and recreational development, she added.
Tamworth Farm gets its name from one of the parcels in the combined development, a 32-acre farm with barns, paddocks, run-in sheds, two guest residences and a manor home. Originally constructed in the 1820s, the main residence was reportedly burned down during the Civil War and was rebuilt with the original stone and a slate tile roof in the 1940s.In addition to the residences and buildings, Tamworth Farm includes a renovated historic farmhouse overlooking a pool. The property’s location falls along The Journey Through Hallowed Ground, a National Heritage Area stretching from Monticello, Va., to Gettysburg, Pa.
Preliminary engineering suggests that up to 70 luxury residences could be constructed on Tamworth Farm, which is adjacent to Creighton Farms, a private residential community with a golf course.
