A prime piece of Leesburg real estate is on the market. The asking price for the 142-acre Westpark Golf Club property has not been disclosed in the sale’s marketing material. Located off the intersection of Clubhouse Drive and South King Street, the property was the former site of a 144-room hotel closed in the late 1980s and was later  demolished. An 18-hole public golf course, driving range, and clubhouse with pro shop continue to operate Most of the property is zoned for low-density residential development, with one 8-acre parcel zoned for commercial use. If developed under by-right zoning, the property could accommodate up to 27 estate-size residential lots. Permitted commercial uses include up to a 247-room hotel, a corporate campus or training facility, an assisted living facility, or a retail center under 100,000 square feet. Other commercial uses may be allowed with  special exception approval from the town. According to Chris Reynolds, the listing agent for the property, the owner, Leesburg Westpark Hotel Associates LC, is hoping to sell the land to one buyer, rather than divide it up. One potential challenge in developing land is that a stream runs right through the middle of the property. But Reynolds said that means it is likely that the future landowner would likely preserve some open spaces and trees. Reynolds said there has been "strong interest" from both national and regional prospective buyers. The property owners are only disclosing the asking price to qualified buyers, he said. The Westpark Golf Club continues to be open for business during the sale.   krodriguez@loudounnow.com
