330 E Main St, Purcellville
Come see this charming historic home! Land includes almost an acre (.88) of flat beautiful landscaping with a fully-fenced backyard, boxwood garden, stone patios, and room for a pool. Easily walk to restaurants, coffee, bakery, W&OD trail, library, and more. Enjoy the town parades from your front porch! The home features hardwoods throughout including original hardwoods with three fireplaces. Plenty of parking and an outbuilding for storage. The original home was built in 1847 by the town blacksmith and wheelwright (Asa Janney) with additions in the 1930s and 2000. It’s not on the historic registry so you can update the home your way.
Admire its beautiful charm as you step inside from the front porch and into the living room, where the warmth of oak hardwood floors, fresh paint, and a wood-burning fireplace greet you.
Grab your favorite book from the built-in shelves in the library and get cozy by the second wood-burning fireplace.
Intimate dinners can be hosted in the formal dining room that is centrally located between private and public spaces.
Pull out your favorite recipe and enjoy cooking in this open and bright kitchen with both a range and a cooktop! Ample cabinet space is available, including several with glass fronts to provide a space to show off your favorite pieces. A tile backsplash provides a finished look and makes clean up easy. Marble and butcher block countertops are ready for food prep and baking. The refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven have been recently updated.
Adjacent to the kitchen you will find the morning room with built-in seating for casual meals and fantastic views of the back garden and patio–perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or an afternoon of puzzles and games. A pantry and cellar provide plenty of extra storage alongside the laundry area.
A desirable main-level primary bedroom was created for peaceful nights and easy living. An adjacent full bathroom with a dual sink vanity, oversized walk-in shower, and door out to the deck may allow for your own private oasis. This room can also easily become a second family room.
Moving upstairs you will find a bright, sunny loft where you can create a home office or lounge area accented with built-in storage and seating. Three generously sized bedrooms, all with hardwood floors and a full bathroom with an oversized tub/shower combo can be found on this level. If you choose, you can easily take two of the bedrooms and the bathroom to make a second primary suite.
Make your way to the third level where you’ll find original hardwood floors, two more bedrooms, including one with a decorative fireplace and a third full bathroom with tile detail and a freestanding tub/shower.
The warmer temperatures will be beckoning you outside to the wisteria-covered trellis above the stone patio. Follow the path to a second patio with plenty of room for dining and enjoying the mature landscaping. There’s even a secret English boxwood garden. The stunning views will change throughout the seasons. When things cool down, gather around the firepit for storytelling and s’mores. A large shed is ready to house gardening supplies and tools or a workshop.

Dreaming of picture-perfect Purcellville living?
The Asa Moore Janney House at 330 East Main Street is one of Purcellville’s most intact pre-Civil War buildings. Janney, a blacksmith and wheelwright whose shop once stood to the west of the house, built this two-story, frame structure in the late 1840s. A later deed describes it as a “frame house built between two large, field-stone chimneys.”
