Description

ONE OF A KIND LEESBURG HISTORIC MANSION & FARM ..SEE VIDEO TOUR! Chestnut Hill Mansion is a magnificent 18th-century Federal-style mansion & farm in Loudoun County, Virginia strategically located on a picturesque knoll on 20.02 acres, the Chestnut Hill Stone House commands breathtaking mountain views, blending historic charm with modern amenities to create an extraordinary living experience with over 7500 square feet of incredible living space. The home embodies a rich historical narrative, once being the residence of Thomson Francis Mason, an esteemed lawyer and former mayor of Alexandria. It is one of Leesburg, Virginia's most significant historical homes. Thomas Francis Mason, born at Gunston Hall, was the grandson of George Mason, IV, founding father of the United States. The Mason family occupied the house for a span of a century. The initials TFM, presumed 'Thomas Francis Mason', are remarkably inscribed on the etched glass in the original part of the house. Constructed around 1766, the house, with its stucco-covered two-story fieldstone dwelling, has been expanded over time by subsequent owners. Oral history purports that the house was not burned following Union order to do so because of the respect of the officer in charge of carrying out the orders for the Mason name. It is believed that an original copy of the Virginia Declaration of Rights was housed at Chestnut Hill during the Mason family's ownership which was later sold to the National Archives in 1930. This property offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of American history. Chestnut Hill is steeped in Revolutionary War-era history, likely built by an English Baptist during the Great Awakening. From Colonel Josias Clapham's ownership during the Revolutionary War to subsequent proprietors like the Mason family and Lucy and Coleman Gore (Coleman was the Uncle of Vice President Al Gore), each era has left an indelible mark on the estate's story, shaping its character and grandeur. With its sprawling grounds, there are several outbuildings like the carriage house, dairy structure, a stable, and a family cemetery dating back to the 19th century, Chestnut Hill offers a glimpse into Virginia's rich past while providing a unique opportunity to create new memories within its historic walls. The estate boasts more than 5000 square feet of beautiful and architecturally significant living space, with original windows, exquisite trim work, dramatic tall ceilings, original wood flooring, fixtures and charming built-in cabinetry. Eleven fireplaces add warmth and character throughout the residence, which encompasses five bedrooms and five and a half baths over 5 different levels. Entertain friends and family amidst the awe-inspiring grand stone exterior, boasting a classic stone front porch adorned with five tall columns, and a spacious full-size rear porch, inviting you to savor the beauty of the surrounding landscape. ideally located within minutes of Loudoun County's beautiful wineries, breweries, farm stand and the history rich downtown Leesburg historic district as well as major commuter roads. Zoned as AR1 and subject to covenants, this property offers both timeless elegance and modern convenience . Property is sold in as-is condition, Seller prefers Community Title.
