The old Safeway space in the Broadlands Village Center is getting a pretty major facelift in preparation for a new gym. Heavy equipment was on hand this week for demo at the future LA Fitness location, expected to be completed in time for everyone's New Year resolutions.
I’m game! We have been looking for a fun mini golf course since Woody’s closed down on Rte 7 a few years back. That place really knew how to run with a theme!
theburn.com The 1757 Golf Club is considering an 18-hole putt putt course.
With all the July 4th festivities, it was easy to miss the grand opening of Il Cappero Lansdowne last week. Early reviews are good and I'm looking forward to checking them out in Lansdowne Town Center soon.
The corner near the Greenway and the Demott Dr on the south west side of the Greenway in Broadlands, Virginia and near the future Silver Line Metro Ashburn Station will have new residential options (townhomes and apartment rentals) as well as office space and a new home for the future expansion of George Mason University
loudountimes.com Loudoun's Board of Supervisors in late June gave the final OK to a mixed-use project targeted for the future Ashburn Metrorail Station.

magazine.realtor You don’t need seven figures in your bank account to buy a house in certain seaside locales.
A couple of new spots are coming to the Goose Creek area of Ashburn.
Later this summer Velocity Wings is opening a carryout location based in Social House Kitchen & Tap - Ashburn in the Goose Creek Village Center.
If you have been watching the area, you have seen the new apartment buildings going up at the corner of Belmont Ridge and Sycolin Rd. The ground level of those buildings, know as The Heights at Goose Creek Village, will include a co-working space called The Ashburn Collective where there will also be a coffee and wine bar.
Can't wait to see what else they put in there. What would you like to see?
A new Sheetz gas station looks ready to open in Sterling, off Nokes Blvd just up the road from Dulles Town Center Mall. I wonder if their prices will be as good as the Sheetz down on Route 50. I plan to stop and see next time I am across the street at Magnolia's Natural Nail Care Clinic.
One of my favorite things about what I do is being able to help neighbors. We live in a wonderful community and I wanted to share a way you can help me to give back and support others.
Loudoun Abused Women's Shelter (LAWS) has provided emergency shelter, counseling, advocacy, support groups, legal services and support to victims of domestic and sexual violence completely free of charge for over 30 years. Through the end of this year, LAWS is collecting used/old cell phones and tablets to recycle and raise funds. Smart Phone Recycling, will recycle the phones and send all proceeds directly to LAWS.
Donating your used cell phone or tablet is a great way to support their cause so clean out those drawers. Let me know when you have things ready and I will give you my address for you to drop off at your convenience (or I can even pick them up from you!).
I always say the real estate market is very local and not all homes are going to sell the same (condos, townhomes, single family, acreage, etc).
In May the notably small decline in the number of active listings in Loudoun County was the result of an increase in the number of active listings of condos. While the number of active listings of condos in Loudoun County increased 16.8 percent year-over-year, the number of active listings of detached homes and townhomes both declined.
Today is National Martini Day! What is your favorite neighborhood place to enjoy a cocktail?

So many fun things happening this month in Downtown Leesburg! Senor Ramon Taqueria opened their new location on King St.
If you would rather shop than eat (really, why not do both!!), check out Sunflower Shack LLC's new shop. You may know them from the old location off Market St just as you drove into Leesburg. A great spot for old fashioned candies and novelties.
New to Loudoun, and King St., is Brick and Mortar a shop filled with unique items and great ideas for gifts.
Have to give credit for the photo to the fabulous folks at Leesburg Vintner

Great info on what to do with old chemicals and paint you need to get out of your house. Thanks Lisa and The Organizing Mentors!
This is a great week to check around the house for hazardous waste like insecticides, spray paint, batteries, automotive chemicals, and some cleaning supplies. Spend a few minutes in the garage, the shed, under the sink, in the basement -- anywhere you store things that cannot safely be thrown in the trash, then take them to the Hazardous Household Waste Collection:

Road extensions and new homes part of development coming to Leesburg.
Tuscarora Village: Construction plans for Phase I of Tuscarora Village were approved last week. Phase I includes 97 townhomes and 92 two-over-two units. In addition, work on the Trailview Blvd extension to Battlefield Parkway is proceeding, as seen from the aerial shot below. Stanley Martin anticipates opening the road by the end of this year.
Work sessions and planning commission meetings are happening this week in Leesburg for the second version of a proposed Downtown development. Planned for space across Church St from the Loudoun County Courthouse, the proposed buildings would include both office space and residential rental units.
I love seeing the continued growth and diversification of the shops and dining downtown. Having residents nearby to frequent those places is important and I am curious to see what impact something like this will have, as well as the King Street Station Luxury Condos which are already under construction. I certainly wouldn't mind being walking distance to King Street Oyster Bar, Delirium Cafe Leesburg, 27 South Interiors and The Wine Kitchen!
loudounnow.com More rental apartments and class-A office space could be coming to downtown Leesburg if the developers behind the Church & Market project receive the approvals they need. The Church & Market project is a reincarnation of sorts of the former Courthouse Square project, which was to encompas
Clean water is likely something you don't think about every day - and you really don't need to with Loudoun Water on the job. They just opened a new treatment center to help them meet the growing demand and make use of their access to the Potomac River.
I got a tour of their facility in Ashburn, off Loudoun County Parkway a couple of years ago and it really is a neat place. At the time they did educational tours in case anyone is looking for a scout or school trip idea.
loudountimes.com Loudoun Water has opened one of the most advanced water treatment plants in the commonwealth to help treat and tap water from the Potomac River to meet local demand. This

wlast.org The fourteenth annual Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour will be held the weekend of June 1 & 2, 2019. Many Western Loudoun VA artists will open their studios for exhibition and sale of their work. The annual tour is free and open to the public.
The Walmart Leesburg new store opened this week near the Lowe's Home Improvement, right off Battlefield Parkway. This will replace the old store location on the North side of Rte 7.
This is also the future home of At Home and Ion International Training Center.
The new Bungalow Alehouse - Ashburn opened last night, near the Ihop and Fuddruckers at the corner of Waxpool and Ashburn Village Blvd.
Like the sister restaurant Bungalow Lakehouse, it features a nice sized outdoor bar and seating area. For those who want to hang inside, there are pool tables, dart boards and of course plenty of beers and ales on tap.
I'm glad to see something fill the former Bertucci's space so soon. If you check them out, let me know what you think!
Do you know the first step when buying a home? Hint - it is NOT going to look at homes!
simplifyingthemarket.com In today’s real estate market, low inventory dominates the conversation in many areas of the country. It can often be frustrating to be a first-time homebuyer if you aren’t prepared. In a realtor.com article entitled, “How to Find Your Dream Home—Without Losing Your Mind,” the author highl...

Great news for Ashburn & Broadlands! When the Beaverdarm Reservoir reopens for recreational use, it will be bigger and better than ever!
loudountimes.com The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday night approved development plans for a public park at Beaverdam Reservoir and an adjoining property.
Sounds like something new is headed to One Loudoun this summer. I think The Lost Fox sounds very Loudoun appropriate given our history of races and hunts 😀

My clients scooped up this great Ashburn townhouse just a day after it went on market and I was able to negotiate the perfect timing to keep them from having to move into temporary housing or store their belongings. Love it when a plan comes together!
