Five year old, custom home on 275 year old Quaker farm in Purcellville, Virginia. The rent is $2000/month.
Designed by Alexandria architect Richard Calderon and based on a circa 1840 Italianate farm house, the "cottage" is 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths classic dwelling with a total living area of about 1250 square feet. Boarding (stall or field) also available for horses!

The home is heated and cooled by a 15 SEER high efficiency heat pump and is serviced by a 450 foot deep well drawing on one of western Loudoun's deep and extensive aquifers. The first floor living room includes a vent-less gas fireplace, built in book shelves, professionally finished rough milled red oak floors and 9 foot ceiling and ceiling fan. The kitchen includes electrical appliances and a granite countertop with slate splash back with generous cabinet space and a separate pantry. The dining area off the kitchen includes a built in shelf for displaying china or other family artifacts. A roomy coat and storage closet, utility closet and the powder room complete the first floor. All interior doors have replica mid-19th century cast iron rim locks with porcelain door knobs.

On the second level are two bedrooms. The master suite includes a private bath and walk in closet. A second full bathroom, adjacent to the second bedroom, includes a stacked washer-dryer. Both bathrooms are tiled in classic white and black. Included in the guest bathroom is a 150 year old restored claw foot tube with shower. The bathroom was literally designed around this tub, with additional floor joists added to support its weight! Both bedrooms have ceiling fans, 9 foot high ceilings, large well insulated windows with farm views and carpeting throughout. Consistent with the style of the home there is a 3rd level "bird house" or cupola. Accessible by a custom made ships ladder, the 100 square foot cupola boasts 12 windows offering a panoramic 360 degree view of the farm and nearby Short Hill Mountain; fully carpeted with a ceiling fan, the cupola is a perfect light-filled study or spare bedroom. Opening the cupola windows in the summer creates a draft which ventilates and cools the whole house.

The cottage sits on its own fully fenced lot, with an easily maintained front and side lawn. There is a 10 ft x 8 ft storage shed. In the back is a private patio, cut into the side of the hill with a 5 foot high stone retaining wall.

The cottage is one of two dependencies on Shiloh, a Quaker farm dating back to 1747. With mature, manicured gardens we board horses, raise Jacob sheep for their fiber and raise organic and non-GMO eggs and specialty greens for sale to local restaurants. We also have a small (100 vine) vineyard. The property has free ranging peacocks and a acre pond stocked with koi and inhabited by our black swans and their new cygnet, all available for your enjoyment.

Conveniently located off Rt 287 just north or Rt 9. Please note the interior photo's were taken during construction! The home is beautifully finished and ready for occupancy on 1 May.
