hello world. I”m testing my blog post. can you see this on my blog page?
Some people who live in Loudoun County, VA might say that Eastern Loudoun is a completely different lifestyle experience than Western Loudoun. It could be true, but there are definitely perks to either location.
In Eastern Loudoun, you will find more planned communities with HOA’s (homeowner’s associations), community pools, conveniences such as shopping centers and grocery stores close by. Western Loudoun has historically been known as more rural but the landscape has changed dramatically over the years as development has sprung and taken away large parcels of open land. The number of communities has increased, however, its my opinion that the same kind of planning that was done in Eastern Loudoun to accomodate walking trails or an overall plan for a neighborhood has not been done to the same extent in Western Loudoun. I think its in part to the resistance of development to the west. Western Loudoun is working hard to maintain the small town feel and retain their open space. Shopping is a little further away for the big box stores but there are plenty of options when you go into one of the towns. Purcellville has 2 grocery stores and has several places to eat and its definitely a family friendly town.
Below are links to single family homes in the $450,000 to $700,000 range in both Eastern Loudoun and Western Loudoun County, VA. This might give you some flavor for the differences in living in different parts of the county. Overall, I’d say you will still get bigger lots in Western Loudoun vs Eastern Loudoun and there is still some feel of small town living the further west you go.

2019 Loudoun County Monthly Sales Statistics
While Loudoun County, VA homes for sale inventory continues to hover near historical lows, the decline in year-over-year number of active listings was notably smaller than in previous months. Active listings from May 2018 to May 2019 declined by 5.7% which was the smallest year-over-year decline since June 2015. June 2015 was also the month/year that the cycle of inventory tightening began.
The notable small decline in active listings was primarily the result of an increase in active condo listings. The number of active condo listings in Loudoun County has increased by 16.8% year-over-year while the number of townhome and single family home listings actually declined during the same period.
Tight inventory was the most probable underlying cause of the decrease of new pending sales to 2.1% from the same month in the prior year.
The good news is that through May, 2019, the homes on the market commanded nearly full asking price. The median days on market decreased from 35 days in May 2018 to just 13 days in May 2019. That said, we did see some softening and longer days on market in the upper price ranges this summer. Stats for June have not been released yet and will be interesting to see.

This charming stone cottage in Bluemont, Virginia is truly magical. Charm exudes from every nook and cranny from this former schoolhouse. The outdoor living is fabulous and offers you relaxing evenings by a fire pit watching the firefly show or a weekend filled with hiking out the back of the property to a stunning waterfall! Another hiking option is to walk down the quiet country road to the Appalachian Trailhead where you can go either north or south and hike for miles. Close by Bears Den offers amazing sunsets over Clarke County and also close by is the new Brewery Bears Chase which offers views to the east of Loudoun County.
If you are interested in chickens or already have chickens, their predator proof coop and run is amazing! There are actually two coops and two runs. The larger of the coops allows you to walk inside for easy care. I love that the chickens have their very own rocks inside to hang out on and have such a large area to live in. Free ranging during the day allows the chickens access to the spring nearby as well.
I think the home speaks for itself in the pictures below. Stone inside and out provides such charm! Under contract in 7 days! I think you will understand why when you see the pictures!
