The Beacon Hill community sits atop Catoctin Mountain just west of Leesburg. The neighborhood, full of million dollar homes, covers nearly 1,100 acres with breathtaking views. (The rolling landscape was originally owned by 1950s radio and television personality Arthur Godfrey.) Homes were built with a variety of architectural designs on lots from one to eight acres. Original builders include Apex Custom Homes, Craftmark Homes, and Waterford Home Builders. Also, the Clairvaux Equestrian Center is on site and offers year round boarding, horseback riding lessons, and training.
You can’t miss the wide green space winding through the neighborhood. That’s the remains of The Golf Club of Virginia at Beacon Hill, which closed in 2006. At this point, it just lays dormant awaiting new ownership. The golf course was famously difficult and was only open for a few years despite receiving industry acclaim for the Johnny Miller design. You may see neighbors practicing their game on the empty fairways, which are still being somewhat maintained in case the day comes that the course reopens.
What We Like:
While homes are generally very large–we showed one home that was over 10,000 finished square feet– the luxury features and beautiful layouts can still feel welcoming and non-formal. And there is something for everyone when considering lot placement; some homes sit on private wooded lots while others have wide open mountain views. (At least, as much of a mountain view as you can have in Loudoun.) Sunsets and sunrises are spectacular here.
