Escape The Hustle & Bustle

Luxury Countryside Homes

When it comes to quality of life, there’s nothing quite like owning a luxury home in the countryside. Imagine working hard in the nation’s capital, and then leaving the teeming masses behind as you head back to an estate where the air is clean, the grass is green, and there’s plenty of room to park. Whether you enjoy Fauquier County wineries, equestrian sports in Loudoun, or pristine golf greens in Montgomery County, there are lots of outdoor pastimes associated with wide open spaces. But you may prefer to spend down time tending your garden beds or sunning by your backyard swimming pool.

More About Luxury Countryside Homes in Washington Metro

Luxury homes in the countryside can come in a variety of styles, ages, price points and styles. Washington, DC and its surrounding regions, including Northern Virginia and parts of Maryland, date back to some of the very first colonial land grants. Massive farmlands and estates were gradually subdivided over time and residentially developed. But while the District of Columbia, along with some of its neighboring cities, morphed into a multitude of well-populated communities, change came slower to outlying areas. It’s the age-old nature of metropolitan growth—expansion begins at the epicenter and slowly radiates outward. In other words, the countryside may have just as much history as the seat of federal government, but there’s a lot more room to spread out and enjoy.

The nature of the timeline has much to do the with types of homes you’ll find out in the countryside. Many of the towns, villages, and rural communities have historic imprints, from Civil War landmarks to old train depots. You might still find lovely old farmhouses or antebellum mansions from a bygone era, but the languid nature of rural development also means that a large portion of luxury properties are likely to be of more recent construction. This allows for a wide variety of architectural designs. Some owe to tradition influences for the region such as Colonial or Arts and Crafts. But many other styles exist as well, such as Georgian, French Country, Tudor, Mediterranean, and Contemporary.

It's important to remember that the country life isn’t all things to all people. Some might want to get far away from the crowds, on rambling estates and a deep connection to the land in places like Upperville, Leesburg, and Middleburg in Virginia’s Loudoun County against the stunning vistas of the Bull Run and Blue Ridge Mountains. Others many prefer someplace closer to DC, such as the lush community of Potomac in Maryland’s Montgomery County. Here you’ll find truly impressive luxury properties with large lots and a genuine feel of the country while still being next-door to Bethesda’s shops and restaurants, and Washington’s corridors of power.
