As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel after a cold, bleak, and stuck-inside winter, we also see Sellers deciding to list their homes in this hot real estate market. Loudoun County — and particularly South  Riding — is always in demand, and it’s no wonder. South Riding is a community that has such a close-knit feel…I’d know after living here for over 18 years!

South Riding: A planned community in the heart of Loudoun County

Part of that is the range of community-building events and activities that are sponsored by the HOA’s Events Committee. Although things have been a bit curtailed or modified since the pandemic started, South Riding folks find a way to stay connected.

I remember when my husband and I first drove down South Riding Boulevard 19 years ago. We came to look at a particular Toll Brothers model home but with the intention of moving into another Toll Brothers neighborhood. But it only took about 30 seconds driving into the neighborhood to have the sudden realization that this was where we wanted to settle and raise a family.

Conveniently located no matter where you work, play, or shop…

Just a few miles west of the Fairfax County border in Loudoun County, South Riding is accessible to places eastward via Route 50, accessible to the beautiful western parts of the county like Middleburg by also using Route 50, and accessible to Ashburn and Leesburg via many north/south arteries. If you typically commute into Tysons or Washington, DC, you’ll find the Toll Road isn’t too far either.

This Single Family Home is the perfect size and so well maintained…

I’m always pleased to present a South Riding home, and this recent Listing is no exception. Located at 42630 Harris Street, it’s been meticulously cared for by the original owners and even has a new roof, shutters, and hot water heater. The interior boasts engineered hardwood floors, light gray paint, chair rail and crown molding in the Formal Living and Dining Rooms, a gourmet Kitchen, and upgraded Bathrooms.

Find plenty of areas for work-from-home or virtual learning space

Brand new luxury vinyl plank flooring was recently installed in the Basement, which has a Media area, a wet bar/kitchenette, a full bathroom, and a smartly designed work-from-home or virtual learning space. In fact, the current owners have utilized spaces on each of the 3 levels for “office” space, with the well-lit and spacious Living Room currently being used as a home office, and the fourth upstairs bedroom as a virtually learning spot.

A great layout with plenty of upgrades

42630 Harris Street boasts almost 3,000 square feet of finished space over three levels — the perfect size but without a ton of yard maintenance. There’s a darling front porch and a spacious back deck for al fresco dining or entertaining. The gourmet Kitchen and Bathrooms have new upgrades, and recessed lighting is found in some rooms. These “Village” style homes, built by Toll Brothers, have detached two-car garages, and a deck fills in the space between. Other extras you’ll find in this house include surround sound in the Family Room and Basement, outdoor speakers over the deck, some USB wall plates for charging phones and other devices, an ADT security system with motion sensors, ceiling fans in all Bedrooms and the Family Room, built-in shelving in the garage, and a subpanel and Tesla electric car charger for up to two vehicles.

Convenient location that’s walkable to neighborhood schools

If you have kids, you’ll love how this home is within walking distance of both Hutchison Farm Elementary School and Freedom High School. (It’s also really close to the new campus for St. Paul VI Catholic High School.) There’s a new Dulles South Recreation Center in the neighborhood, as well as various shopping centers. You’re just a couple miles from a Giant food store, restaurants, Wine Styles wine bar, Starbucks, numerous tae kwon do studios, Bach to Rock music studio, and plenty of day care/pre-school options.

Let us know if you’re interested in seeing this home. It will be available for showings beginning on Thursday, March 4. From past experience, we know it will generate a lot of interest and sell quickly!
