2022 Most Expensive Homes Sold in Loudoun
It’s that time of year again, where we do our annual look back on how the Loudoun luxury real estate market performed, and bring you the top five most expensive homes sold in the county. We’ve been following the luxury market in Loudoun on our blog since 2010, and honestly a lot has changed since then. Our average home price has risen considerably, with the average sold price in 2022 reaching $755,000. “Million dollar homes” are a much larger segment of the market, so that $1 million price point doesn’t really mean luxury now- there were slightly more than 1100 homes sold in Loudoun above $1 million in 2022. Richest county in the country, indeed.
So What’s the Luxury Price Point Now in Loudoun?
Now that the sale of homes over a million dollars is so prevalent here, I think it’s safe to say that anything over the $2 million price point is pretty much guaranteed to be a luxury home. This isn’t an exact science- we are sharing this for you real estate dreamers out there. Which is why our lists, at times, have not included large dollar land sales with tear-down homes. It’s also important to note that Loudoun County is large enough that the home prices are affected by the commuting times- meaning western Loudoun homes can be somewhat less expensive than eastern Loudoun homes. So a $1 million home listing in Round Hill or Lovettsville could very well be pretty luxurious.
For this year, the price threshold to make the top five was slightly lower than in 2021- only two of the homes on the 2022 list would have made it on in 2021. Here’s the top five most expensive homes sold in Loudoun County for 2022:
#5: (tie) 20179/20173 Gleedsville Rd, Leesburg and 21943 St Louis Rd, Middleburg $3,300,000
We’re starting the list with a tie for 5th! The Gleedsville Road home, Legacy Estates, is actually a 10 acre estate with two homes on it. Property amenities includes a resort style pool and spa, 3 golf greens, and a gated entry. Eve Weber of Long & Foster Real Estate was the listing agent and Jessica Sidar of RE/MAX Realty Centre represented the buyer. White Oak Farm, the home on St Louis Road, is a stone “Hanback” house sited on a farm of more than 90 acres. The property has a stone tenant house, a stable with tack room, open fields fenced into large paddocks, and is held in a conservation easement by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation. Cricket Bedford of Thomas and Talbot Estate Properties was the listing agent, and Laura Farrell of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
#4: 22488 Madison Hill Pl, Leesburg: $3,675,000
Here’s this year’s Creighton Farms home! Located in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Northern Virginia, this home was built by Apex Homes and has outdoor living spaces that rival the beauty of the indoor ones. You know the home is special when the details include hand scraped hardwood floors, custom moldings, archways, and chandeliers, and a gourmet chef’s kitchen with double dishwashers and sub zero refrigerators (among much more). Personally, I fell in love with the wood paneling in the home office and the outdoor kitchen. Every home we’ve seen in Creighton Farms has been breathtaking, and this one is no exception. The listing agent was Bill Davis of C21 New Millennium, and the buyer’s agent was Jeddie Busch of Compass.
#3: 35487 Snake Hill Rd, Middleburg: $4,100,000
If there is one constant on our yearly list, it’s the prevalence of Middleburg estate homes showing up in full force. This estate, known as Mortgage Hall, is home to an 1850s Georgian mansion on 121 acres. The manor home has 9 bedrooms, 5 and half bathrooms, 6 wood burning fireplaces and beautiful formal rooms, including a library. The estate is a working farm, held in a conservation easement, with 3 barns, numerous fenced paddocks, 2 workshops, a chicken coop, and a tenant house. It was co-listed and co-sold by Scott Buzzelli and Peter Pejacsevich of Atoka Properties.
#2: 41530 Southpaw Place, Leesburg: $4,475,000
This home might mark the first appearance on our lists by a Red Cedar home, although not many homes in that neighborhood can claim a 25 acre homesite along Goose Creek as part of their description! This 7 bedroom, nearly 14,000 finished square foot home was custom built in the French Country style in 2009. It of course has all of the bells and whistles you would expect of a home at this price point: a Great Room with vaulted ceilings more than 20 feet high, exposed beams and a custom stone fireplace; a kitchen with Sub-Zero appliances; two laundry rooms; an elevator; and additional spaces like a theater room, wet bar, billiards room, fitness room, and outdoor pool. The home was co-listed by Omar Samaha and Mary Clair Soltesz of Long & Foster Real Estate, and the buyer was represented by Jeddie Busch of Compass.
The most expensive home sold in Loudoun in 2022?
#1: 21827 Quaker Lane, Middleburg: $4,950,000
Kentwood Farm in Middleburg comes in as the most expensive sale of 2022. The property was originally built as a thoroughbred breeding farm, but the 189 acres served as a purebred Angus cattle operation for the folks selling it. The main stone house is accompanied by a creek house, cabin, and farm manager’s house, along with 5 equestrian barns and other outbuildings. The main house has more than 6500 finished square feet, including exposed beam ceilings, cozy stone fireplaces, and a spacious stone patio. Cricket Bedford of Thomas and Talbot Estate Properties was the listing agent, and Dale Myers of The Myers Group represented the buyer.
Inventory is still pretty low in Loudoun right now, with only 195 non-new construction homes listed, but 19 of them are priced over $2 million, including a stunning home in Grenata that we thought was going to make our list for the last two years, a pair of homes in Atoka Chase in Middleburg, some amazing estates in Upperville, and a smattering of western Loudoun acreage properties.
