King Street Station is a sophisticated and chic new addition to Leesburg’s historic area. The neighborhood was conceived by the award-winning Knutson Companies, which specializes in the construction of luxury homes with sophisticated urban style in walkable neighborhoods. The Leesburg Planning Council was enthusiastic about the King Street Station project, appreciating its positive efforts to revitalize historic downtown Leesburg.
King Street Station is a 7100 square foot, multi-family residential, commercial, and recreational area community. The community is located on Leesburg’s South King Street and is home to 64 single-floor condos; as of May 2020, 65 percent of these condos have been sold. Remaining condos are still up for grabs, and prices range from $325,000 to $799,000.
Condos are available with either one or two bedrooms and one or two baths; the smallest units comprise 749 square feet, while the largest units run up to 1818 square feet. Each unit boasts 10-foot high ceilings, and five-inch hardwood flooring is used in the main living areas. To create a comfortable vibe, Shaw carpet is used for the bedrooms and dens. The unit kitchens are also fully upgraded with stellar Whirlpool appliances, Kohler Simplice brushed-nickel faucets, beautiful granite countertops, and a convenient microwave drawer. For resident convenience, one outdoor parking space is assigned per one-bedroom residence, while two-bedroom residents have access to a private garage and outdoor parking spaces. Model units are available to view by appointment only.
According to Leesburg Staff, King Street Station is anticipated to add approximately 20 school-age children, which will place minimal pressure on the Loudoun County School System. Current districting shows children will be attending Catoctin Elementary School, J. Lupton Simpson Middle School, and Loudoun County High School.
King Street Station is in a fantastic location just steps away from the popular Washington and Old Dominion Trail, historic Church Street, and Town Branch Stream. It’s also within walking distance of the courthouse and the town center. This location offers easy access to favorite Leesburg hangouts, from restaurants to shopping to historic sites!
King Street Station truly provides all the comforts of urban living. The community’s design plans include a pedestrian plaza, terraces, and lawn for the use of downtown residents. Improvements to Town Branch Stream are also planned, including excavation, the addition of stone borders, improved water pumping, and wildflower plantings.
In response to an idea proposed by a local high school student back in 2017, the Leesburg Commission on Public Art sent out a call for artist’s submissions for historically themed murals on both sides of nearby South King Street Bridge. This bridge spans the Town Branch Stream adjacent to the W&OD Trail and will become a bonus feature for the entire Leesburg community. The train theme chosen for the mural project represents the role the railroad has played in town manufacturing and trade since the railroad’s arrival in Leesburg in 1860. The mural, funded by the Friends of Leesburg Public Art, is currently underway, and installation is expected within coming months.
Shaded by large trees, bordered by paved sidewalks, and just steps away from the kind of resources that heighten the convenience of urban living, King Street Station is a paradise. South King Street presents a pleasing blend of many older, classically elegant homes in a variety of styles.
Just across the street from the King Street Station site is Georgetown Park, a well-groomed half-acre space with picnic tables under the shade of beautiful trees. Olde Izaak Walton Park is a historic 21-acre wooded nature refuge less than a mile away from King Street Station. This park features a fishable 3.5-acre pond fed by a stream that attracts fascinating woodland birds. Visitors to the park can also enjoy strolling along a walking trail and taking their dogs to play in a large fenced dog park.
Loudoun County’s population has tripled in size in the last 20 years and is expected to top 400,000 over the next four years. This tremendous growth continues to attract prominent builders with dynamic and creative ideas for new types of housing; the goal is to revitalize, enhance, and meet the needs of Leesburg’s modern population.
The King Street Station community enjoys convenient access to tons of urban excitement! Residents can browse Leesburg’s art galleries or visit a variety of entertainment venues; they can also meet friends for a hot drink at local coffee shops or try a selection of beer at various breweries. Of course, there are plenty of amazing restaurants to try, not to mention grocery and drug stores located close by for convenience.
