Oh the Luxury of Living in the Past! Imagine living in a beautiful 19th century home in historic downtown Leesburg, yet feeling like you have been transported to the countryside! An unexpected oasis with towering trees offering tremendous privacy, surrounded by perennial gardens, tucked in the NW corner of downtown Leesburg and nestled on a .45 acre lot, 16 Union Street offers just this. From the moment you walk up to the front porch you will instantly feel what life must have been like 130 years ago. Take a moment just to sit on the front porch and hear the hourly chime of the nearby church bells and the numerous birds singing in the trees. Immediately you start to relax and life moves a bit slower. Step inside and you are greeted by a wonderful foyer accented by a classic staircase and beautiful wood floors. As you make your way through this happy home, large windows offer natural light and you feel the special ambiance that only an old home can deliver. The living room, just off the foyer, features a wood burning fireplace with a gorgeous mantle that makes you almost wish for winter. Down the foyer hall is a favorite spot- the enclosed side porch on the main floor- the perfect nook to curl up and and read a book or watch the snow fall on a winter's day. Next there is a quaint yet spacious dining room that flows into the nicely updated kitchen featuring cottage-like cabinets and a spacious pantry. French doors off the kitchen lead to the wonderful rear yard. Once outside, there are so many places to enjoy nature. Whether you sip coffee on the deck , dine with friends under the pergola or garden to your heart~s content. If you have hobbies- the yard provides not only two potting sheds but a fantastic "2 car size" barn that would be an ideal spot for building and tinkering. All around the property are wonderful trees providing shade and privacy but toward the rear of the lot it opens for the perfect veggie garden or for a spot for your chickens to enjoy. HVAC is new. Step off the front porch of this charming home, walk through the front pillars and take the Union Street sidewalk into to the heart of Leesburg where restaurants, coffee and specialist shops are only a few blocks away. Nearby Historic Morven park offers hundreds of acres to enjoy on foot or horseback and nearby Ida Lee Park offers indoor swimming. The Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail is blocks away with bike and footpath that heads through Reston to Arlington. There are numerous vineyards and breweries within 15 minutes of this home. Private horse boarding stables, public and private golf and the Evergreen Sports Complex offer wonderful options for outdoor activities. If you love history, Leesburg is home to 21 places on the National Historic Register including: Dodona Manor, Morven Park, Oatlands Plantation and White's Ferry.
