Welcome to Horseshoe Cottage located in the charming village of Middleburg. So named for the collection of old horseshoes found on the property over the years and passed down from owner to owner. This stylishly renovated home provides a charming hamlet life where you can walk to town.
The c. 1932 bungalow-style cottage offers 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, original hardwood floors and over 35 windows all with a warm contemporary feel inside. From the welcoming front porch, enter the bright foyer with painted wood floors. On one side is the Prussian blue living room with sisal rug, grasscloth wallpaper and built ins. On the other side is the light-filled office/den, also with built-ins. Step towards the back of the house to discover a surprisingly open floor plan that includes the family room, kitchen and sitting room accented by a gas fireplace. This spacious area is bathed in natural light from the many windows overlooking the back gardens. The gourmet kitchen has marble countertops, subway tile backsplash and high-end appliances. Family room area has space for a large TV and is wired for speakers. Off this area is a separate laundry room with sink and built ins. A small hallway leads past the powder room to the primary bedroom suite. This main level suite has brand new carpet, sitting area with built ins, walk-in closet and luxury bath with dual marble vanity, soaking tub, and glass shower. Upstairs are three guest bedrooms, one with a sunny Quadrille wallpaper and another with Farrow and Ball custom strie painting on the walls. There is a large full bath with separate sinks. The guest bedrooms are carpeted (2 are brand new) with the original hardwood floors underneath.
The back yard is fully fenced with stately trees that provide shade to the sunken flagstone terrace bordered by stone walls and boxwood. This space is ideal for entertaining with plenty of room for a table and a firepit. Extensive garden beds surround the house, along with expert landscaping that provides wonderful privacy. Other features include a raised vegetable bed and chicken coop. A detached guest house featuring a 1-car garage and a beautifully renovated 1 BR/1BA guest room with a covered front porch complete the property. Unique corner location allows for two parking areas. Great commuter location with easy access to Dulles International airport and downtown Washington, DC.
