    Description

    An iconic Hunt Country property, designated a Virginia Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Loretta is a stunning 18th century mansion set at the center of 128 pristine acres of field and woodland, among gorgeous gardens of green lawns, towering trees and magnificent boxwood. With an idyllic countryside location, yet only minutes from the~conveniences of Warrenton, The Plains, Marshall, Middleburg and Gainesville, and the main commuting arteries of Northern Virginia, Loretta is perfectly situated. The well-regarded Wakefield, Hill, Foxcroft and Highland schools are within minutes' drive, Dulles International Airport and Tyson~s Corner are 40 minutes away, downtown Washington D.C. less than an hour.~~At the end of a long, private drive lined with stately trees and bounded on both sides by its own fields, the property includes the six-bedroom, nearly 6500 square foot, brick manor house on four levels, an adjacent 18th century springhouse converted to a studio/home office, a charmingly restored 19th century, two-bedroom, 2000 square foot guest house within the gardens of the main residence, a 50~ swimming pool, and a seven-stall stable and barn with vast upstairs loft. In addition, there is a restored 19th century tenant house at some distance, ideal for a property manager or tenant with a small family, and three additional outbuildings from the same period.~An altogether authentic expression of Virginia~s colonial heritage, Loretta has benefited from careful stewardship and discreet renovations over the years, while retaining all of its original features. Improvements made by the current owners include a complete re-roofing in Buckingham slate and copper, a thorough re-pointing of the original masonry, extensive internal restorations, a remodeling of the kitchen, and the addition of the swimming pool. While reflecting the restrained elegance of its original Federal period design, Loretta boasts the~neoclassical architectural proportions and bright, airy character of a gracious Southern mansion.~Passing between imposing Ionic columns and through the lovely front entrance with leaded sidelights and transom, you will discover a vast central hall, sweeping staircase, eleven-foot ceilings, pocket doors, French windows, carved mantles and antique wood floors throughout.~~Organized around cool grass lawns and traversed by mellow brick pathways, the gardens of Loretta spread out under ancient, towering poplars and include magnificent, mature boxwood, lilac, privet, hydrandea, azalea, vibernum and heirloom flower beds rich with peonies, lilies and iris. The varied trees spread through the gardens include magnolia, dogwood, willow, cherry blossom, flowering pear, buckeye, burr oak, ash, walnut, hackberry, osage orange, locust and maple. The gardens are a wonderland for children and adults alike and offer a multitude of opportunities for outdoor entertaining. ~~Loretta today is in impeccable condition, a stylish and manageable full-time residence or a weekend country home. With its location and topography, it would be an ideal equestrian estate and the enviable quality of the land makes it well-suited for viticulture, arable or livestock farming. Loretta is offered with 65 acres at $2,650,000. The adjacent 63 acres with wonderful water views, building rights and lenient easement provisions are available by separate negotiation.
