Beacon Hill & Shenstone

Just west of Leesburg are the neighborhoods of Beacon Hill and Shenstone. These neighborhoods are the “gateways” to Western Loudoun, which is home to dozens of vineyards, breweries, equestrian facilities, and historic towns like Waterford, Hillsboro and Lovettsville.  Beacon Hill & Shenstone homes for sale are super hot, not only because of their access to the west, but also to the east!!  Both are less than 20 minutes from Dulles airport, and only a 5 minute drive to downtown Leesburg!

Beacon Hill

Beacon Hill has 225 homes (almost all on at least 3 acres) and was built on the former estate of legendary radio personality, Arthur Godfrey.  Originally, the Beacon Hill community was built around The Golf Club of Virginia at Beacon Hill, a 27-hole championship golf course designed by US Open Champion Johnny Miller..  However, the golf course closed in 2006.  In 2014 the Beacon Hill Community Association bought the golf course for a whopping one dollar!  The association continues to maintain the golf course as a great open space area filled with walking paths for the residents.

In September of 2022, it was announced that a deal was in the works to re-open as a private course with membership levels starting around $25,000 with play resuming  in September of 2024.  Since then they've announced that it will open as an 18-hole course, and later will add an additional 9 hole family course.  There are also plans to add a new clubhouse and golf practice center.

Starting prices for homes here are generally over $1M and recent sales have come close to the $3M mark.  While that may seem high, when you look at these homes, you’ll understand why.  Even the lower priced homes are typically 7,000 to 8,000 square feet.  While the higher priced homes can be over 11,000 square feet! 

 

Most homes also have at least a 3 car garage with a circular driveway, and have been decked out with luxury appliances, flooring and other appointments.  Many also have their own custom luxury pool, some with fountains and outdoor spa.  You’ll find additional luxuries here such as walk in wine rooms, indoor saunas, media rooms or even an indoor basketball court!

Below is a great example of a home sold in 2023 for $1.8M by one of my coworkers!

Shenstone

Shenstone is a little over half the size of Beacon Hill at 128 homes.  And like Beacon Hill, each lot is on at least 3 acres!  And though Shenstone may not have a golf course for open space, it does have access to one of the great outdoor treasures of Northern Virginia, the W&OD trail.  And I’m not joking about the W&OD being a treasure!  Check out some of my video and blog posts about adventures on the W&OD trail!  You have access to over a hundred miles of paved trails without ever getting in a car!

Like Beacon Hill, homes for sale in Shenstone also start around a million dollars, with recent sales up to $1.7M.  And just like Beacon Hill, in addition to 3 car garages, many of the homes here have private pools, upscale interiors, beautiful views and most are between 6,000 to 9,000 square feet.   Here’s an example of a home that sold for $1.7M at the end of 2023.

And in November of 2022, a similar home with over 8,000 square feet and it’s own private tennis court sold for only $1.5M which you can see (along with all the other amazing homes) in this drone flyover below!

Both of these neighborhoods are amazing places to live, and I have friends who live in both.  As a 20+ year Loudoun resident and top producing real estate agent in the region, I know this area well, and I know how to market your property and maximize the value of your home sale.  You deserve to work with the best!  If you are interested in buying or selling here, please give me a call.  I’d love to put all my local knowledge, energy and resources to work for you!
