Lansdowne: Fine Wine, Dining Await the Renter in This Upscale Community
Lansdowne (aka “Lansdowne on the Potomac”) is a small unincorporated community in Loudoun County, Va.
Technically, it’s part of historic Leesburg, which, as of July 1, 2009, had a population of 40,927 people. (Of course, the Lansdowne area has far fewer residents). For people that follow population demographics, you’ll know that Loudoun County has been one of the nation’s fastest-growing counties in the last decade. Renting an apartment in Lansdowne, you’re about 30 miles from downtown Washington, D.C., a doable morning commute if you can get up early … and we suggest you do so as early as possible.

Lansdowne is known for the Lansdowne Resort, a luxurious spot for people to be pampered. You’ve got your spa; you’ve got your massage; you’ve got your golf; you’ve got your food; you’ve got your drink. You’ve also got your attractive, 40ish-looking lovers on the website saying come hither.
You also better have the greenbacks to stay here. Assuming you move to Lansdowne and you’re, say, a teacher, I can’t imagine a better place to be a pool boy or towel girl during the summer.
Lansdowne may also be famous as home to the National Conference Center, which bills itself as “one of the largest and most comprehensive conference centers in the nation.” That’s impressive.
As Lansdowne is in Leesburg, renters also have that town proper just to the northwest of them and all the amenities so afforded, including Leesburg Historic District, a farmers’ market, Ida Lee Park, Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets and of course: WINE!

Known as DC’s Wine Country, Leesburg and the surrounding area have plenty of wineries. If you dig further into that tricked-out website of theirs, you’ll see the place is horse country, too. Giddy-up.
But where this classy plaza really shines is in its veritable smorgasbord of restaurants. Your tummy gets to choose from the likes of Noku Japanese Grill & Sushi, Emilio’s Brick Oven Pizza and Grill, Mariachi Restaurant and Burapa Thai Classic Restaurant. Just so you don’t think me some kind of food snob, the place also has a Subway. Who doesn’t want to eat fresh?
