Nestled in a secluded hilltop oasis surrounded by a mature hardwood forest, this authentic hand-built log home provides the essence of serenity. Just minutes south of Leesburg, the long private drive brings one to a clearing where the home and several outbuildings are clustered, with the majority of the 22.5 acres undisturbed. Surrounding the home are low maintenance gardens, perennial plantings, and a forest with an abundance of wildlife.
Built in 1988, the 3-bedroom, 3-bath log home features newly refinished pine flooring throughout most of the main and upper levels. On the main level, the interior walls are primarily exposed logs with primarily exposed logs and timber ceilings. The home has double pane windows, a standing seam roof, and an unfinished lower level with rough-in plumbing for a bath.
The main level has a large primary bedroom with spacious closets and private bath. In addition to the primary bedroom, the main level features a living/dining room combination with Jotul wood stove, kitchen with an island and table space, laundry/mud room with pantry, additional full bath and a 2-car attached garage. On the second level, there are 2 spacious bedrooms, each with a vaulted ceiling and a skylight; these bedrooms share a hall bath.
The two-story section of the home has an unfinished lower level with rough-in plumbing for a bath. This level houses the mechanical systems, workspace, and storage areas. The lower level door opens to a charming patio with terraced walls made from stones from the property’s original home, ca. 1700’s. Stone steps lead from this patio to the perennial gardens behind the home, a fish pond, a child's playhouse, and pergola for outdoor cooking and dining.
In addition to the home there are 3 outbuildings: a 1-car garage or tractor barn with loft and 2 sheds for a hobby, garden equipment, or storage.

The owners, who are also the builders of this home, have used the Jotul wood stove extensively and are leaving approximately 2 cords of cut wood for the new owner. Last year, the electric bill ranged from $100-179/mo. for central air conditioning and lights and the propane bill averaged $100/mo. for heat and hot water This charming log home has been a wonderful full-time home and would also make an ideal weekend getaway. To be able to enjoy such privacy and nature, the convenience to shopping, employment, towns, and Dulles International Airport is extraordinary.
Google Maps will take you to the wrong home. Once on Oatlands Road the road will curve to the left and then the right up to the top of the ridge. A green Thomas and Talbot sign is at the driveway.
