Built before the American Revolution, this single pile Stone Quaker residence c. 1745 with complementary 1850's addition provides the essential elements for the perfect Metropolitan escape or inspirational retreat. Situated in the Goose Creek Historical District amidst a mature landscape plus fourteen acres of pasture and woodland, the meticulously preserved gem is tucked away off a short dead end road for a complete sense of serene comfort and privacy but within 3.50 miles of Purcelleville and with easy access to major Washington commuter routes and Dulles International Airport. Be assured, all renovations were a labor of love with the concept being to bring the house back as closely as possible to it's original form. This is further evidenced by the property being the recipient of the Preservation Society of Loudoun County's Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Award of 1992. The home has four working fireplaces, approximately two foot deep exterior walls and several rooms with exposed beams, stone and multiple custom built-ins. The Kitchen flooring is of rare salvaged Chestnut tongue and groove with the remainder of the main floor and upper level flooring being the original tight grained virgin Pine except for the Master Bedroom which is maple. From the Mahogany full length covered front porch one looks out over a native stone retaining wall which gives way through a graceful swale to the lovely spring fed pond. A separate two story office or studio dependency is within a few steps of the patio area and within a short walk, the four stall barn and detached 36' x 14' machine shed are located. All showing are by appointment only with 24 hour notification. ** PLEASE, NO DRIVE BY'S** Listing Agent must accompany and no sign on property.
