18187 LINCOLN ROAD, PURCELLVILLE, VA 20132
A historic gem, the former 1908 W.E. Nichols General Store is located in the bucolic Quaker village of Lincoln, the heart of the Goose Creek Historic District, the first rural historic district in Virginia. This impeccably maintained Private Residence is a focal point in the village which bears a remarkable resemblance to the settlement that evolved nearly three centuries ago. Situated on a half-acre corner lot in a park-like setting, this truly unique home is thoughtfully updated with modern electrical, plumbing and HVAC (dual zones) while maintaining its original architectural details and character.
The large front porch is ideal for visiting neighbors, relaxing and enjoying the community’s 4th of July parade, trick-or-treating and caroling. Step into the enclosed porch (ceiling fans/heater) and feel the charm of the original features alive today! Inside you are greeted with soaring 11 foot ceilings, heart pine floors throughout and enormous windows filling spacious rooms with natural light. The front 1908 general store room, now a spacious family room, still has the original 17’ store counter, custom built-in shelves with stenciled drawers, detailed millwork, Eastlake hardware, beadboard walls, all carefully updated with modern day conveniences. The expansive, yet intimate dining area connects the family room to a modern day, sun-filled kitchen with updated white cabinets, gleaming wood counters, new quartz countertop center island and a picturesque window overlooking the woods. Off the kitchen is a beautifully updated, spacious full bathroom and a multi-purpose room that can be used as a den, guest room, in-law suite or more. High-speed Comcast internet and a separate entrance, first floor bonus room with half bath provide ideal work from home capabilities.
Upstairs floor to ceiling windows flood the space with natural light and treetop views. In addition to bedrooms, you’ll find a kitchenette, walk in closet, bright and updated full bath and two bonus rooms. This home’s versatile floor plan offers ample space and includes 8 large, flexible rooms for multiple living areas, gym, in-law suites, home offices, etc. Many recent updates include new roof/gutters, exterior and interior paint, front porch restoration, kitchen and bathroom upgrades, laundry room install, furnace, well pump, patio installation, whole house water filtration and more.
The beautifully landscaped yard, a certified and registered National Audubon Society’s “Audubon at Home Wildlife Sanctuary”, is filled with Virginia native plants, wildlife habitat, raised garden beds, and a lovely side patio perfect for outdoor entertaining. At the start of the historic Lincoln Loop walking tour, this home is within walking distance to Lincoln Elementary, the post office, Abernathy & Spencer nursery. Purcellville dining and shopping amenities without town taxes or water bills, minutes from W&OD Trail, Appalachian Trail and many Western Loudoun wineries and breweries to explore.
