At Leisure World of Virginia, the active adult community at Lansdowne, activities and classes usually are available every day of the month so residents can learn to paint, take a dance or exercise class, practice a musical instrument or discuss a novel.

Golfers at Loudoun County’s Leisure World can play at the Lansdowne Resort golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones and the new 18-hole Greg Norman-designed course, which opened last year.

In addition, the Lansdowne Resort pro shop, spa, restaurants and clubhouse are available to Leisure World residents.

The community includes walking and biking trails, Loudoun Hospital Center, a medical office building and planned retail and office spaces.

The IDI Group Cos. and RCC Inc. of California are developing the 91-acre Leisure World site, which is part of the 2,300-acre Lansdowne community.

Leisure World eventually will consist of seven high-rise buildings and seven midrise buildings, with 2,114 condominium homes. The buildings will be positioned in a circular pattern around landscaped open spaces and recreational amenities.

Condominium residents will enjoy views of the Potomac River, golf course and parkland, as well as distant mountain vistas.

Amenities within Leisure World include open spaces with nature trails, landscaped areas and community garden plots. In addition, there are two community clubhouses, an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center, tennis courts, an auditorium, activity and craft rooms including a ceramics and wood shop, a bank, a billiard room, an interfaith chapel, restaurants, and convenience shopping.

The community has perimeter fencing and a guard-controlled entry gate. The Leisure World shuttle bus offers transportation to nearby shops and restaurants for residents.
