Opportunities abound for the 511-acre property
In Loudoun County, where a thriving job market has sparked significant development in recent years, vast expanses of open space are becoming increasingly hard to find, and that’s what makes Tamworth Farm so remarkable. Conveniently located off Route 15 near Aldie between Leesburg and Gilberts Corner, the country estate comprises 16 individual parcels for a total of over 511 acres. It is listed for $25 million with Linda Culbert of Long & Foster Real Estate’s Leesburg and Purcellville Gateway offices. Long & Foster is the No. 1 privately owned real estate firm in the United States and the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in the Mid-Atlantic.
“Tamworth Farm offers long-term opportunities, whether purchased by a global investor, a local executive or a residential builder,” said Culbert. “The expansive acreage offers unmatched privacy, yet the location’s proximity to Dulles airport and the many businesses and attractions in Loudoun and Fairfax counties make it appealing to homebuyers throughout the Washington, D.C., metro area.”
Tamworth Farm gets its name from one of the parcels in the combined development, a 32-acre farm complete with barns, paddocks, run-in sheds, two guest residences and a manor home. Originally constructed in the 1820s, the main residence was reportedly burned down during the Civil War and was rebuilt with the original stone and a slate tile roof in the 1940s. The well-maintained interior features the finest quality of materials with historic charm and character throughout.
In addition to these residences and buildings, Tamworth Farm includes a fully renovated historic farmhouse overlooking a beautiful pool. The property’s rich history is elevated further with its location along The Journey Through Hallowed Ground, a National Heritage Area stretching from Monticello, Virginia, to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The expansive property also showcases the natural beauty and history of the Piedmont region with rolling hills, grassy fields, meandering streams and ponds.
An aerial tour around Tamworth Farm demonstrates its opportunities for residential, hospitality and recreational redevelopment. Preliminary engineering suggests that up to 70 luxury residences could be constructed on Tamworth Farm, which sits adjacent to Creighton Farms, a private luxury community with an award-winning Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course.
Loudoun’s exceptional job market and the diverse industries that operate in the county, as well as its location near Washington Dulles International Airport, also increase Tamworth Farm’s appeal. The county not only is one of the most educated in the nation, but also has one of the fastest expanding job markets, according to research from the Loudoun Department of Economic Development. In addition, Loudoun has earned numerous honors and recognition, most recently being named the happiest county in America by SmartAsset in May 2016 and ranking as the fastest-growing county in Virginia.
