Area Description: The village of Middleburg,VA is a treasure for residents and tourists, and is 40 miles west of Washington, DC. It is commutable as well as a wonderful location for tourists to visit the city memorials, mall, museums, White House, Capital Hill and monuments, to name a few.
Middleburg is an equestrian area, and features the Virginia Gold Cup , polo games, vineyards and plantations nearby. Airport, train and metro stations are nearby. Dulles Airport is only 20 minutes away, and Reagan National is near the city. Union Station provides train service throughout the US, and the metro reaches from DC to many suburban areas. There are many up-scale shops in Middleburg, a grocery store, the prestigious Salamander Resort, and many different culinary restaurants. These are all within walking distance to the circa 1800 Middleburg House.
JFK and Jackie owned a summer residence here. Elizabeth Taylor (Warner) visited frequently and welcomed the likes of Frank Sinatra on the steps of “The Hollywood Theatre” (ruined later in a fire) in her mink coat and blue jeans.
Middleburg has it all. It is a special place for residents and tourists. Nearby attractions to visit, and the peace and solitude of the town when desired. It is like stepping back in time to a village of friendly people and beautiful surroundings.
Site Description: The Middleburg House is located on about 1/3 of an acre in the middle of the historic village, and is one of the oldest homes, circa 1790-1800. Levin Powell founded the town, and the original town plat shows “The Middleburg House” and 70 properties mapped along 2 main streets, Washington Street (east to west) and Madison Street (north to south). Each home was required to have a stone or brick chimney and plant a tree in honor of George Washington, who was a surveyor of Middleburg and the county. The Village of Middleburg was thus named because at that time it was the halfway (i.e. middle burg) point between the thriving port of Alexandria and the outpost of Winchester, VA.
The Middleburg town council and planning commission approved the house to be called after the village because of its historic nature. The property could be a prestigious home, a lucrative commercial store or office, a B & B, or an air B & B. It is near the intersection of Madison and Federal Streets which was once a pony express stop.The house, town, and area are seeped in history, and offers many delightful adventures for a resident, guest, or tourist.
The town was the unofficial headquarters of John Singleton Mosby, “The Grey Ghost of the Confederacy”, who would ride behind Union enemy lines as a disruption. There was a restaurant in town which was called “The Hidden Horse” where Mosby would hide his horse from searching Union troops during the Civil War. The village and surrounding areas have many historic battlefield sites for history buffs to explore.
Structural Description: The home is a stunning approx. 4400 square foot antique colonial on beautifully landscaped grounds. It has been meticulously kept and is in excellent condition. It’s exterior is stone covered by stucco, and its elegant living space has old hardwood floors, 4 antique fireplaces, and charming sun filled rooms.
In 2017-2018 $60,000 of major improvements were made. A new metal roof and new gutters and downspouts were installed. A new wood dormer was constructed on the roof, and new crown molding and exterior wood was added. The exterior of the home was sealed and freshly painted. The front yard was landscaped and covered with beautifully blooming perennials. The backyard is already a gorgeously landscaped mature lot with blooming day lilies, peonies, dogwoods, holly trees, lilac trees, magnolia, wisteria, daffodils, hosta and much more. A small goldfish pond and fountain grace the backyard and makes it a peaceful paradise.
The home is in incredible condition for a home of any age. When the home was expanded, the newer section was designed by an architect to provide continuity of the old with the new. At this time all the plumbing and electrical systems were updated.
The Thomas and Talbot website contains a video of the home and area, numerous photos and detailed descriptions of the many rooms and suites. I encourage you to explore The Middleburg House further on this website. It is truly a home to love.
