Own a piece of Loudoun County history with numerous possible uses!
Welcome to Nixon's Mill, one of only three water-driven gristmills left standing in Loudoun County! Nixon's Mill was part of the original Woodburn Farm, which at its zenith encompassed over 400 sprawling acres. In it's current configuration, at 5+ acres and bordering the north fork of Sycolin Creek, the property offers the most unique possibilities imaginable-whether it's constructing a new dream home, converting the gristmill to other uses, or building an agri-business in a premier location.
The gristmill bears a date stone inscribed G.N.N. 1777, verifying its age and original owner, George Nixon. Inside the fieldstone and frame structure are hand-hewn beams, window frames and doors with rough hand-cut wide plank floors. This three level building is the perfect canvas to create the space of your dreams that will truly be like no other.
The 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage was constructed 10 years after the gristmill and was known as the "Miller's Cottage" This handsome 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. An exciting feature is that the property is already serviced by Verizon FiOS providing high speed internet.
A Loudoun County Health Department Certification letter is available for construction of a new 3BR drainfield. With updated AOSE work, the drainfield size may potentially be increased. There are NO historic property restrictions or conservation easements on the property. Zoned AR1, there are numerous allowable uses that include(pending other zoning ordinances): Bed & Breakfast Homestay, Bed & Breakfast Inn, Farm based Tourism, Coffeehouse, Antique Store, Art Gallery/Studio, Craft Store, and Animal Husbandry.
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.
