The Grounds of Airwell

The original 19th century property, located on the outskirts of the small, quaint town of Purcellville, consists of nearly 5 acres of giant, old trees and beautifully landscaped gardens with a variety of colors, textures, and hideaways. The focal point of the side yard is the large fountain surrounded by beautiful red roses and white lilies. In the spring, the magnificent, pink dogwood tree, sprawling magnolia tree, and several flowering cherry treess are a sight to see. The grounds provide the perfect place to unwind with a great book, lounge in the hammock, or enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Airwell, Circa 1860

In addition to being the home of renowned landcape artist Lucien Powell, the setting of Airwell along the Snickersville Turnpike is significant to our nation's history.   While still a land surveyor, George Washington traveled on this road over Snickers Gap. Many Civil War skirmishes took place along the turnpike as well.  In fact, it is said that soldiers camped right on our property, and recently we unearthed a half cannonball as evidence.
 
 The Greek Revival style main house is a unique gem with two stone porches, two grand entryways, 5 working fireplaces, hardwood floors, a cozy library, and original crystal chandeliers.  On weekends, guests are welcome in the elegant main house to relax by the fireplace in the library or spacious, comfortable living room.
