Mansion Hunting In Northern Virginia

This past weekend I did a little house hunting just to see what I can get out there for the money that I can spend. Unfortunately this area is a very expensive one to live in, so a decent amount of money doesn’t really take you very far. I’ll have a post later on this week with the couple of houses I was looking at. While I was driving home, I happened to see a couple huge houses, and decided to look around the area to see what else I could find. Here’s a little gallery of what I found (these are all in the South Riding/Chantilly and Clifton, VA area, which makes the houses a lot more expensive than something you would find in a more rural location):

Northern Virginia Mansion
Gorgeous style house, and I love the deck over the garage! With a Mercedes, Lincoln Navigator, and a FJ Cruiser sitting outside, it makes you wonder what is in the garage.

This house has a 5-car garage! I didn’t get a good picture of it, but you can see the 2 car garage. There is also a 3-car garage attached to the left side of the house.

This wouldn’t be too shabby of a cul-de-sac to live on.

I didn’t get a picture of it, but this house had a guest house a few hundred yards from the house that was pretty big as well.

This was one of the smaller houses, but you can see how much it was for sale.

This picture does the house no justice, it is much larger than it looks. I will definitely be coming back in a couple of months to see how it progresses, but this was by far the biggest house of the day.

This house is hard to see due to all of the trees, but this was the 2nd largest house of the day. I believe it was either owned by or is still owned by an AOL exec. There is a separate ranch to the right that you can see in the next picture.

I missed the picture on the house, but you can tell by the gate that what’s behind there must be nice!

I used to have a twin turbo Nissan 350Z that I took some pictures of at this house. Here is one of the pictures from that day:

Nice fountain out front.

This had to be my favorite style house, even though it wasn’t the biggest. I love the modern look.

I had to take this picture while driving, so it’s not the best shot. What I did miss in the picture was the huge fountain that is behind the column in the middle of the picture. I’ll have to update this picture one of these days since it’s not too far from where I live.

Here’s a 3D map of the South Riding area where some of the monster houses are. If you scroll around there is much more to see.

I know there are plenty of places with much nicer houses, for example the Hamptons, but everybody likes to look at nice houses :mrgreen: Know of some nice ones? Post links to some pictures. If one of these pictures is your house, invite me for a tour!

    holy cow!

    A buddy of mine’s family is selling their home, it’s an awesome place. I don’t know anything about Virginia geography, but I think it’s in the Catlett area.

  • http://www.davidpitlyuk.com David Pitlyuk

    Tom: That is awesome place! I think anybody with a house that has the name “estate” in it has it pretty much made. What do they do?

    That’s about 15 miles away from me…So that area is a lot cheaper than some of the houses I posted. As you get closer to DC it can get way bigger and way more expensive than some of the stuff I posted. I’m thinking about going out again for some new stuff that blows these away.

    They own and operate a travel agency.

    It’s that close to you! Ha! That’s pretty cool. Swing by and tell them hi for me. Mention ITF and they might give you a glass of iced tea!

    Here’s a fine old house, for sale, certainly more reasonable ($850K) than what you’ve been looking at, on the eastern outskirts of Harrisonburg, one of the hottest, fastest growing cities in Virginia, 1.5 hours southwest of Leesburg. Would make a perfect restaurant or house for young family who wants ponies. 5 stall pony barn and fenced in pastures.

    Email me at maggieoverstreet@hotmail.com if you want more info.

    Another address for the house is http://www.joanneknauf.com/hs.html

    What you posted was actually very logical. However,
    what about this? what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, but suppose you added something to possibly get a person’s attention?

    com is kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create post titles to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
