Nestled atop Catoctin Mountain just west of Leesburg is Beacon Hill, a luxury community of million dollar homes. Named for the 326 acre estate once owned by 1950′s news personality Arthur Godfrey, there are now nearly 1100 acres of majestic landscape with breathtaking views.
The rolling landscape was originally owned by 1950s radio and television personality Arthur Godfrey. A LoCo favorite, the community hosts a variety of architectural designs on lots from one to eight acres. Original builders include Apex Custom Homes, Craftmark Homes, and Waterford Home Builders…and there are still a few buildable lots left. Also on site is the Clairvaux at Beacon Hill equestrian center, offering boarding, lessons, and training year round.
The Golf Club of Virginia at Beacon Hill, which closed in 2006, winds through the neighborhood and lays dormant awaiting new ownership. The famously difficult championship golf course was open for several years and received industry acclaim for the Johnny Miller design. You may see neighbors practicing their game on the empty fairways, which are still being maintained until the day comes that the course reopens.
