Last year in January I did a wrapup post of the most expensive homes sold in Loudoun County for 2010. Obviously, now it’s time to take a look at the top 2011 luxury sales in LoCo. The top five homes sold, not unlike 2010, were all just about in the $2 million and above price range. Money may not be able to buy you happiness, but it can certainly get you some fantastic real estate:
Listed by Janean Buchner of RE/MAX Select and sold by Robin Bono of Weichert Realtors after 165 days on market. The home is located in Cascade Estates (near the 8th hole at Trump National Golf Club) on over an acre of land, was built in 2001, and boasts over 9600 finished square feet, an in-ground pool, and private putting green.
Listed by Gloria Rose Ott and sold by Cindy Polk, both of Armfield, Miller, and Ripley Fine Property, after 476 days on market. Combining two parcels for over 53 acres, this estate home has a newly remodeled main house with a sleeping porch, veranda, and in-ground pool. The guest house was built in 2009; the property is also home to a first class equestrian facility.
Co-listed by Nancy Yahner of Keller Williams and Jim Lemon of Middleburg Properties, and sold by Charles Blanks of Coldwell Banker Preferred Properties after 41 days on market. The main home was built in 1982 and is situated on 175 acres with mountain views. The property also has a tenant house, barn, pastures, pond, and woodlands. (And also, the potential for a vineyard, as pictured.)
Listed by Jeffrey Stein of Tranzon Fox and sold by Sam Rees of Prudential Carruthers Realtors after 78 days on market. With numerous outbuildings, and 27 acres of land (including a 7 acre pond) , the historic Wheatland Manor property dates back to 1741. The listing was shy on details but offered that the property could be used for a corporate retreat.
And the most expensive home sold in Loudoun in 2011?

Four fireplaces, five bedrooms, four full and two half baths, dual curved staircases, in-ground pool, stocked pond, mountain views, guest house….you get the picture. It looks absolutely amazing….a true luxury retreat, here in the most beautiful county in Virginia.
