What you can get for your money in Loudoun County depends on where in LoCo you want to be, and how much house you are looking for. This month, the available homes priced around $600,000 run the gamut, from luxuriously appointed patio homes in the upscale Lansdowne community, to historic farmhouses off the beaten path (and including plenty of land) in the western end of the county.
When I looked at the multiple listing service today, there were 74 non-distressed resale homes on the market in Loudoun, priced between $575,000 and $625,000. If you are considering moving into that price point, you can expect to find:
- Patio homes in River Creek and Lansdowne: think luxury…gleaming hardwoods, expansive granite counters, archways, curved staircases, and the like.
- Newer single family homes on smaller lots in communities like South Riding, Braddock Corner in Aldie, Brambleton in Ashburn.
- Wider selection of colonials on quarter acre lots in subdivisions throughout Ashburn, Sterling, and Leesburg
- Acreage properties outside of Purcellville, Round Hill, Waterford, and Middleburg, with homes dating back as far as 132 years old and as new as a 2005 construction date (and everything in between)
Which would you pick? The further east you go, the nicer the amenities, but typically the smaller the square footage. Further west? Your yard certainly expands, and the house size too, although you are trading off a community pool and close proximity to major commuting routes.
