PRIVACY - HISTORY - BEAUTY...and a special story: Welcome to Guinea Bridge Farm, an award-winning historical property dating back to 1745 on one of the most unique properties in Loudoun County. The residence was expanded to twice its original size through a seamless addition in the 1850s. This Quaker-built dwelling is peacefully nestled on nearly 15 acres of rolling pastures and wooded land surrounded by over 400 acres of agricultural zoned land. The property resides in the Goose Creek Historical District, an area renowned for its early county structures and settlements. Situated at the end of a tranquil road, the property provides a profound sense of peace and seclusion, while being conveniently connected to paved roads and just 3.5 miles from downtown Purcellville.
Together, Nancy E. Patty and her husband James purchased this home over 42 years ago to begin a meticulous and loving journey of restoration, and preservation of what would become their "jewel" in the country. From sipping wine on their boat in their spring-fed pond, to hiking through the 8 acres of forest, Nancy and Jim created memories alongside countless hours, months and years of learning and dedication to restore and preserve this special piece of history. They became avid members of "The Old House Group" to learn from other owners and craftsman who specialized in restoration. Their major renovations continued for over 10 years and included a complete repointing of the home, re-plastering walls, restoring the 2-foot-thick stone walls with new mortar, and replacing all plumbing and electric. The kitchen was completely refurbished down to the ground with new footers being poured, and a new floor installed with rare, salvaged Chestnut tongue and groove wood. The four fireplaces were refurbished and continue to generate warmth and ambiance on cold winter days, like they did a century before.
From hardware choices to doors, windows, custom built ins, and every stone utilized in constructing the retaining wall, each decision was made with careful consideration and a commitment to maintaining historical authenticity. In 1993, their efforts reached a significant milestone when they were honored with the Preservation Society of Loudoun County Award for "Preservation through Restoration and Reconstruction," as depicted in the attached image.
In more recent years, the expansive front porch was added with mahogany flooring. The septic distribution boxes were updated in 2007 along with a new well pump and holding tank. The hot water heater was replaced in 2018 and a new washer and dryer purchased in 2023. The Weil McLain Boiler produces oil fired hot water to the base boards and is well maintained with annual service checks. The basement's foundation mirrors the exposed stone construction of the entire house and features a poured concrete floor, with a walk-up exit leading outside.
A separate two-story office or studio dependency is just a few steps away from the patio area, and within a short stroll, you'll find the four-stall barn with a tack room and a detached 36' x 14' machine or run-in shed. Underground electric runs to the dependency and both barns with 3 outdoor hydrants on the property (one at the horse barn) that do not freeze in the winter.
2023 Updates include: Main house roof and front porch painted, entire cottage (dependency) painted including roof, horse barn and roof painted, run-in shed painted. COMCAST high speed internet installed.
