Long before the Willowin Farm community was developed by Weatherburne homes, the location was known as Northfork and Greggsville. Greggsville was the site of the first Post Office of the lower Loudoun Valley and was named for John Gregg, who tried to get the Virginia Legislature to establish a town at Greggsville around 1830, but he was unsuccessful. However, a store and post office were built and Alford Wright was named the first Postmaster. Greggsville was the very first post office in Loudoun Valley between Routes 7 and 50.
In 2002, Weatherburne homes bought the Willowin Farm located on approximately 300 acres between North Fork and Greggsville Roads. The Farm was subdivided into about 25 lots that range between 10 and 15 acres. Reserving 20 acres for the 1960’s built home, barns and large pond that still remain. Weatherburne is a high end builder with an eye for detail. The home styles are colonial with traditional floor plans. Weatherburne’s signature shingle shake roofs with tin on porch roof is easy to spot, if you know what to look for. The homes range from 3,300 to 6,000 square feet on two levels. Most have finished basements. Built in the heart of Loudoun and Middleburg fox hunting territory, these modern hunt country estates fit nicely into the landscape and history of Northfork and Greggsville.
Located just 5 miles from Purcellville, Willowin feels a world away but it’s very convenient to schools, shopping and Routes 7 and 15.
My current listing at 19676 Greggsville Road features 3 fully finished levels, 5 bedrooms, 10+ acres, a barn with hayloft, a grass riding arena and both an attached a detached garage.
