Property resides within an established neighborhood near schools, shopping, and is within walking distance of the Centreville Historic District. Located near the crossroads of Interstate 66, and Routes 28 & 29, it offers convenient commuter access and is 12 miles from Dulles International Airport. This property is truly unique. It feels like parkland with open space, surrounded by tall trees. Just beyond the old stable lies a pathway, draped in canopy of luscious greenery and deep roots with a story. The parcels back to a linear park with a woodland trail, known as The Covered Way, which connects the remnants of 3 significant Civil War era fortifications. A ridge runs through Centreville that provides a plateau overlooking the surrounding valleys. This topography was eminently suitable for the monitoring of troop movements, a key factor that led to the construction of the massive Civil War fortifications by Confederate forces at the start of the conflict in 1861. A year later, Union soldiers overtook these fortifications and held the grounds through the end of the Civil War. The Covered Way is a now a walking path, a place to reflect and perhaps envision how soldiers depended on the earthwork fortifications as protection from enemy fire when traveling between forts.
