Luxury home buyers often want the best of country living, but at the same time they want the con-

venience of nearby recreational amenities, shops, services and entertainment. At the Overlook at Loudoun Valley Estates in Ashburn, Toll Bros. Inc. is developing a wooded, private community with a landscaped entrance and neighborhood amenities including swimming pools, tennis courts, a community center, playgrounds and walking trails.

In the Overlook at Loudoun Valley Estates, homes will be built on half-acre or larger lots with views of the woods and mountains. Each home will include a brick front, 6-inch beaded vinyl siding, professional landscaping and a three-car, side-entry garage.

All 11 models in this section of the development include a two-story foyer, 9-foot ceilings on the main level, an oak main staircase, a secondary staircase, a first-floor study or library and hardwood flooring in the foyer, powder room, kitchen and breakfast area.

Other standard features include a gas fireplace and extensive trim including four-piece crown moldings, two-piece chair-rail moldings and shadow-box moldings.

Each kitchen has 42-inch cabinets, granite counters, upgraded appliances and an adjacent breakfast area.

The master suite has a sitting area, crown moldings, a large walk-in closet and a bath with a tub and separate shower. Each full bath has ceramic tile flooring, and the homes also have gas heat, two-zone air conditioning, a security system and a structured wiring package.

The 11 models each have four bedrooms and three or four full baths and a powder room, with 2,960 to 4,780 finished square feet. Base prices range from $841,975 to $936,975. Buyers can customize with sunrooms, greenhouses, skylights, whirlpool tubs, expanded kitchens and additional fireplaces.

The Langley model, with 3,760 square feet, is priced from $893,975. This home features a dramatic main level with a two-story foyer, a central “butterfly”-pattern split staircase opening to both the foyer and the family room, and a two-story family room with three walls of windows and a fireplace.

Arched openings link the formal living room and the formal dining room to the foyer.

In one corner of the main level is a private study with an adjacent powder room. On the opposite side of the home are the open center-island kitchen and breakfast area, which includes a desk and a walk-in pantry, plus access to the rear stairs.

Nearby are a laundry room and several closets.

Buyers can add a morning room with three walls of windows and skylights off the breakfast area to expand the casual living space of this home.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite features a double-door entrance into the sitting room, a bedroom, three walk-in closets, a dressing area and a bath with a cathedral ceiling, an oval tub with a picture window next to it, and a separate shower.
