Round Hill & Bluemont

A little History

Just west of Purcellville is the small town of Round Hill.  With beginnings dating all the way back to 1731, the “town” really didn’t start to form until the mid 1800s, and was officially incorporated in 1900.  It was a summer destination for Washington’s elite… but it was also a crossroads / meeting place for industry, especially when the W&OD railroad was created around 1875.  Round Hill was the end of the line!  Of course, now the W&OD trail ends just a few miles east in Purcellville.   Trivia factoid, Patsy Cline attended elementary school here!!

In 1830, there was a push to rename the town to “Bluemont”, but that push failed.  Instead, we now have “Bluemont” at the end of Snickersville “Turnpike”, about 4 miles to the west of Round Hill.  Snickersville is a gorgeous quiet road going from the base of the Shenandoah mountains all the way to Aldie down near Middleburg.

The town itself has not seen “major” growth, with the official census from 1900 increasing from 318 residents to 693 residents in 2020.  But, looking outside of town, there has been an explosion in new homes. The “Village at Roundhill”, as an example, has over 1200 homes and borders the town on three sides!  But the town has considering annexing some of the surrounding neighborhoods which would create a much larger official basis for the town and also more accurately reflect the growth of the town in the last two decades.

Lifestyle & Amenities

Like most places in Western Loudoun, Round Hill is surrounded by wineries and breweries including Bogati Winery, Otium Cellars & Williams Gap  Vineyard.  Most of them have live music on the weekends also!

And if you head towards Bluemont, you’ll find even more great venues.  Bluemont is a quaint historic village, but what it’s really known for today is being right at the edge of the Blue Ridge mountains and home to places like Bear Chase Brewery, Dirt Farm Brewery, & Bluemont Vineyard, which are up on the mountainside and offer you some of the most amazing views of the region while sipping on an adult beverage and listening to live music. 

Right in the middle of Bluemont is Bluemont Station Brewery & Winery and on the other side of the mountain is Twin Oaks Tavern Winery… And of course you have Great Country Farms here, which draws families from all around the area.  It may look like the middle of nowhere on a map, but Bluemont is surrounded by entertainment options! 

And while the wineries and breweries offer food and drink, you’ve also got Purcellville to the east just down the road, with many more restaurants.  Two restaurants of note in Round Hill are Tammy’s Diner, famous for their blueberry pancakes all day long, and just down the road is More Better Restaurant and Beer Garden a local favorite whether it’s lunch, dinner or the after dinner party! 

One of the great things about being this far into Western Loudoun County is your proximity to outdoor attractions like fishing or tubing down the Shenandoah River, or hiking on the Appalachian Trail.  One of my favorite hikes is to Raven Rocks.  It’s just about 2 1/2 miles from the trailhead to this gorgeous view, but don’t fool yourself… it’s a tough hike with a lot of ups and downs, a lot of roots and rocks (some really big rocks!!!)  as well as two stream crossings.  It will take you an hour to hike the view, so make sure you bring enough water! 

And Round Hill itself has Sleeter Lake, a 101 acre reservoir on the south side of Route 7.  The lake is filled with bass, catfish, bluegill and crappie, making it a really fun (and free) local activity, especially for the kids!  You can also take your electric boat or paddle board out on the water, but swimming is NOT allowed.

The town also has it’s own Aquatic Center managed by the County.  The Aquatic Center offers lap swimming, water aerobics classes and fitness classes and is located right next to Woodgrove Park, which has multiple sports fields for baseball, soccer, lacrosse and football as well as wooded hiking areas.

And, of course, we have to mention Franklin Park, just a mile outside of town between Round Hill and Purcellville.  Franklin Park is a great amenity for the entire region and features a huge outdoor competition pool (home of the Stringrays summer league swim team) as well as an aquatic “park” with bubblers, a massive slide and spray area.  But Franklin Park is much more than just an aquatic center.  They have a performing arts center where you will find concerts throughout the year, tennis & volleyball courts, fields for baseball, soccer, rugby and lacrosse, a Disc golf course, equestrian trails, and even an inline hockey rink!

And you’ve also got Stoneleigh  Golf and Country Club just outside of town along Route 7.  You don’t have to live there to be a member and they even have a kids summer league swim team available to everybody in the region.  You can read my full write up of this neighborhood here, including drone video of the neighborhood.

And lastly, we can’t forget the Annual Round Hill Home Town Festival, held Memorial weekend every year.  Activities include a 5K Fun Run, parade, pie eating contest, live music, a cornhole tournament and a downhill derby!! 

The Neighborhoods

Surprisingly, for such a small town, it actually has one of the largest HOA communities in Western Loudoun:  The Villages at Round Hill, with almost 1200 homes!  First built around 1997, the last homes weren’t completed here until around 2015.  Most of the single family homes in the center of this community have two car garages and range in size from 3,000-3,500 square feet.     Here’s an example of a 3,200 square foot home that sold in 2024 for $660K. 

However, you will find a good number of homes here well over 4,000 square feet, like this home on the higher end, backing directly to Sleeter Lake, with almost 4,200 square feet of living space that sold for $952K!! This was one of the highest sales in the Villages at Round Hill.

As you can see from this map, there are dozens of other smaller communities in the area also. 

 

Close to the center of town you'll find places like Ridgeview Estates, Blue Ridge Chase, Hillwood Oaks, Greenwood  Commons  and others in the downtown area.  Most have between 25-50 homes in each. 

 

You can see Stoneleigh on the map here, which has almost 150 homes.  You can read read all about Stoneleigh, it's amenities and homes on my Neighborhood page here.

But, not so obvious from this map is Brentwood Springs right in the downtown area.  Brentwood is a newer community with almost 100 homes.  Brentwood is designed to be a luxury home community with some homes approaching 5,000 square feet in size. 

Here’s an example of one of the first homes built in Brentwood that went back on the market in 2024 and sold for $990K!!  At 4,700 square feet, this home is pushing the million dollar barrier in downtown Round Hill!

Outside of the town, you’ll find larger lots and homes in neighborhoods like Devonshire, Hamlets of Blue Ridge, Blue Ridge Summit, and the Orchards at Round Hill.   Most of these homes sit on 3 acres or more.  Here’s an example of one of the larger homes, with a 3 car garage, 6300 square feet of living space and sitting on almost 6 acres!

And if you continue west towards Bluemont, you’ll find the “loose” neighborhoods of Whitehall Farm and Lodge Land Farms.  These are large homes with large lots and open spaces.  Here’s a 4 acre home that sold for just over a million dollars with a pool!  Own a horse?  This might be the place for you!

If you head south out of town on Airmont Road, you’ll find brand new neighborhoods still under construction like Airmont Farms, Black Oak Creek and Black Oak Ridge.  If you are thinking of buying here, give me a call!  The developers will tell you that you don’t “need” a Realtor to buy brand new construction.  But if you read my blog post on this topic, you’ll know that you should use a Realtor for new construction!

As you head north towards Hillsboro along Woodgrove Road, you’ll also find neighborhoods like Milligans Run and  The Highlands with almost 100 homes going up the ridgeline towards the Appalachian Trail.  You can read more about this neighborhood on my Hillsboro page.

But there are also a lot of homes that are not part of a neighborhood at all.  Many lots were small farms that didn’t subdivide, and instead are just beautiful homes on beautiful properties.  Here’s great example of a home built in 1987 sitting on 22 acres that sold in 2024 for an even two million dollars!  What a gorgeous private retreat!

Living out here is gorgeous.  You get the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, and yet you are surrounded by amazing amenities and countryside.  Plus, Route 7 gives you freeway access to head even further west to places like Berryville, 10 miles past Bluemont, 10 miles the other direction to Leesburg and everything it has to offer!  Keep going and you can get to Dulles Airport in 30 minutes!
