Welcome to Nixon's Mill, a rare opportunity to own both a piece of Loudoun County history and a blank slate to build your own custom "barndominium" The mill property was part of the original Woodburn Farm, which at the time comprised over 400 acres. In its current configuration, bordering Sycolin Creek, the property offers the most unique possibilities to imagine-whether it's a residential home, investment property or agri-business in a premier location.
The 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage was constructed 10 years after the gristmill and was known as the "Miller's Cottage" This fieldstone home has been lovingly renovated and updated, and is perfectly suited as a weekend getaway, AirBNB, temporary housing during construction of the main home, or guest house. A Loudoun County Health Department Certification letter is available for construction of a new 3BR drainfield. Zoned AR1, there are numerous allowable uses--come let your imagination run wild!
Just imagine, 5+acres on a quiet country lane, only a few steps to paved road access with high speed internet (via FiOS) already installed. Originally known as "Nixon's Mill" it bears a datestone inscribed G.N.N. 1777, verifying its age and original owner, George Nixon. Constructed as a gristmill on the banks of the northern fork of Sycolin Creek, it is one of only three water-driven grist mills left standing in Loudoun County. Inside the fieldstone and frame structure are hand-hewn beams, window frames and doors with rough hand cut wide planked floors. This three level barn is the perfect canvas to create the home of your dreams that will truly be like no other.
Nixon's Mill is conveniently located in Leesburg, just minutes to downtown and its many restaurants, shops and entertainment centers. Its central location is also convenient to local commuter routes, and only 20 minutes to Dulles International Airport.
