Estates at Shenstone Farm
The Estates at Shenstone Farms is a Leesburg neighborhood set in the hills as you head west towards Purcellville, on the opposite side of Route 7 from Beacon Hill. There are two sections to the community, which was constructed by Toll Brothers between 2001 and 2007. The front section, which includes the majority of the 128 homes, is accessible from Route 7. There is a second section accessed from Dry Mill Road. The community is adjacent to a portion of the Washington and Old Dominion Trail, and is also near the Loudoun County Fairgrounds. It’s not too far from where Route 7 intersects with Route 9, and is close to the slightly newer Shenstone Reserve community, which was also built by Toll Brothers.
The original property was indeed Shenstone Farm, with a stone farmhouse dating back to the mid 1700s- predating both Loudoun County and Leesburg. The homes in the neighborhood sit on 3 to 9 acre lots, which are mostly open and allow for plenty of sunrise, sunset, and scenic countryside views. As with most of the Toll Brothers estate home communities, the houses were built for entertaining with expansive kitchens, formal rooms, numerous bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and ample finished square footage. There are no community amenities, but the lots can easily accommodate pools and other outdoor living spaces.
The one drawback to the community is the entrance to the homes on the Route 7 side; coming from Leesburg heading west, you have to either turn left across the divided highway- which can be tricky at certain parts of the day- or go past the community to turn around at the Route 9 exits and roundabouts to enable an easier right hand turn into the neighborhood. This is balanced with the ease of commuting, however, as the entrance to the Dulles Greenway is only 4 miles away.
What We Like:
The rolling terrain in the neighborhood, combined with the large lot sizes, leads to pretty views out of almost any window. You might even mistake it for a golf community from all of the green space. The simple access to the W&OD Trail is a huge benefit. The neighborhood is only a few miles from downtown Leesburg, and sits smack in the center of the Loudoun Wine Trail.
