A 5-acre property with a historic cottage and one of Loudoun County’s three remaining grist mills from circa 1777, is on the market for $1,225,000.
Located at 19205 Dunlop Mill Road in Leesburg, listing agent Kelly Gaitten of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services PenFed Realty said the property is a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”
“It has a lot of potential and is in great shape,” she said.
The five acres were once part of Woodburn Estate, a 400-acre farm that was previously owned by Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev between 1970 and 1996. The entire estate has been designated a Historic Landmark in Virginia.
The cottage, known as Miller’s cottage, was built in 1787 by a local Quaker named George Nixon, Gaitten said. It is a one-bedroom stone cottage with a metal roof, front porch and a stone patio in the rear.
Many of the historic details remain, such as beamed ceilings, wide plank flooring, plaster walls and wavy glass windows.
Stepping inside the front door, there is a large living area with a fireplace which leads to the kitchen and dining areas.
