Stoneleigh is an enclave of just over 140 homes surrounding Stoneleigh Golf & Country Club in Round Hill. The first members of the community arrived in 1992, which is the same year the course opened. Each home is unique, with architectural styles including Cape Cod, Colonial, Georgian, and French Provincial. Situated to take advantage of the amazing views, most home sites are secluded on one to three acres.
The property has roots dating back to 1750, with the original manor house built in the 1850s by the James family, renowned stone masons of Loudoun County at the time. During World War I, William E. Dodd, the US Ambassador to Germany, owned the property and would spend summers at the farm to get away from the politics of Washington. In a book by Erik Larson titled “In the Garden of Beasts”, Stoneleigh is mentioned as a place of respite for Ambassador Dodd. During the 1940s, the site became an orchard for what is now Mom’s Apple Pie at Hill High, famous for fantastic pies and desserts. You can still find a few apple trees scattered throughout the property, as well as remnants of stone walls and an old toll road.
The golf course was designed by Hall of Fame Architect Lisa Maki. At 6782 yards from the back tees and a slope rating of 142, Stoneleigh is one of the hardest golf courses in Virginia. It’s definitely the the type of course to play twice before deciding whether or not you like it; you could easily shoot 5-10 strokes better the second time around. We wrote a blog post with a full review of the course itself here.
