LOL, well only you all can make that decision!! I have to tell you I personally think Leesburg is a great place to live and super nice area - if you are close to the historic district/downtown area. The suburbs are like any other in that they are suburbs and you need to get in your car to get to anything. You can find a darling historic home in Leesburg for a good price. Where is he comuting too? Do you want to have a horse or two? Or live in a suburban planned community with ammenities? If you still want to be close to the "action" but little more space, you can also find some nice buys down GW Parkway in Alexandria; not far from Old Town.
I'll be happy to help you and have spent many years in Leesburg (visiting) and know quite a few people out there. I attend events out there, go to the wineries, horse events, and LOVE the restaurant there called Lightfoot. Call me if you have questions, etc. Happy to tell you what I know.
