Exeter neighborhood

The Scoop:

The Exeter neighborhood grew from what was originally a 4,000-acre 18th-century plantation that anchored the east side of Leesburg. Now, the vibrant community includes 399 single-family homes and 430 townhouses on 215 acres. Homes were built between 1984 and 1999, and many have been beautifully updated as the neighborhood has grown and matured. Community amenities include a private swimming pool and clubhouse, tennis courts, basketball courts, a multi-purpose court, walking trails, and multiple playgrounds. The HOA sponsors numerous activities throughout the year, highlighted by pool parties, an annual yard sale, and a fall festival.

The original manor home was built in the Georgian style by Dr Wilson Cary Selden. The home was occupied during the course of the Civil War by troops on both sides, and General Jubal Early used it as his headquarters. The Battle of Ball’s Bluff was actually fought on part of the property. Unfortunately, the home was lost to fire in the 1980s, although one of the plantation’s remaining buildings was repurposed as the community center for the neighborhood.

Along with the many benefits of the Exeter neighborhood, its location is right in the heart of Leesburg. For anything outdoors, you’re just down the road from Robinson Park, Lake Sherred, and Ida Lee Park. For all those who love shopping, the community neighbors the Exeter Shopping Center, which includes all different kinds of shops like a hair salon, nail salon, florist, and tae kwon do studio. The neighborhood’s location allows accessibility to anywhere around Leesburg, from downtown to the individual communities held within the different neighborhoods. The Exeter community allows anyone new, or well-accustomed, into the Loudoun County area, being in the middle of Leesburg grants newcomers the chance to explore all over town while still feeling at home.
