10 Acres of Land with Home for Sale in Purcellville, Virginia

A Unique, Historic Equestrian Estate
Somerset Farm is an historic home with recent renovations and additions. The beautiful grounds with towering trees, brilliant perennial gardens, and manicured lawns make this a truly breathtaking estate.
The home is the best of old and new. Originally built in the 1830's, the home maintains its original historic charm featuring wide heart-of-pine wood floors, historic doors, iron block locks, round brass knobs, and large wood trim. It has been meticulously renovated with impeccable taste boasting a cathedral ceiling on the main level, a large great room, and multiple French doors bathing the rooms in sunlight. Keeping the gourmet chef in mind, the kitchen has been totally renovated with deep countertops and inset wood cabinetry. There is an eat-in dining area off the kitchen that is perfect for daily use. It is surrounded by windows and French doors bringing in all the beauty of the outdoors and overlooking the pond. There are four fireplaces - two in the historic wing (one brick lined fireplace is 54" wide with original mantel and 39" high arched opening), one in the great room with a woodstove and flue, and one in the primary bedroom. Three finished levels of beautifully appointed living space make this a perfect home for quiet enjoyment or gracious entertaining.
There are four bedrooms on the second level and a finished attic for a 5th bedroom or recreation room. The primary bedroom has an on-suite bathroom with heated travertine tile floors, a steam shower, and two distinct vanities. The lower level has been finished with a wine room, full bathroom, rec room, and office with walkout French doors and full-size windows. The office in the lower level is perfect for anyone working from home in need of a separate entrance for clients or a quiet space away from the main level.
The location is perfect. It is ideally located on a picturesque country lane just minutes from the historic Quaker village of Lincoln (Post Office and Meeting House), and 2 miles from all the shopping and conveniences of Purcellville (Harris Teeter, ACE, Giant, Walgreens, restaurants, medical services, automotive services, etc). Surrounded by properties in conservation easements - there is no danger of new encroaching developments. Those who enjoy walking the country roads will enjoy the 3-mile loop down Foundry Rd and Sands Rd. Unlike most rural properties that are isolated from a community, Somerset Farm enjoys the local community in the village of Lincoln and the activities organized by the Lincoln Community League (The 2023 activity calendar is in the documents section or available upon request).
Somerset Farm encompasses ca. 9.59 acres of horse pastures and park-like settings. Two flagstone terraces, one overlooking a heated pool with an automatic cover and hot tub. The equestrian enthusiast will love the 8-stall barn with a tack room, storage room, and shower stall. There are 4 x four-board fenced paddocks with automatic waterers and run-in sheds, and a riding ring. This is a true horse lover's dream property. Additionally, there is a 2 bedroom accessory dwelling on the property great for generational living, a caretaker cottage, or a rental income generator. Other buildings include a spring house and chicken coop.
Somerset Farm enjoys a private country setting in a wonderful area, with easy access to Dulles International Airport and the nation's capital. Fine restaurants, excellent schools, boutique shops, and sporting clubs are all nearby. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase this historic gem (included in the "Lincoln Loop" history tour). Will you be the next owner to continue this property's rich legacy?
