Property Description


 Built in 1930, this stately Georgian colonial home is beautifully sited on a magnificent two acre River front parcel of land once owned by George Washington.  Just south of the American Horticultural Society, this location offers magnificent waterviews of the sun rising and setting and the moon shining over the river.  With the crystal clear water in the swimming pool reflecting the water on the Potomac, the vista is spectacular.

The house is built to celebrate the views and enhance the privacy of this waterfront estate, offering a grand living room with French doors opening to the gracious porch overlooking the grounds leading down to the water and boat ramp.

The kitchen is a masterpiece with every state of the art appliance, opening to a spacious family room opening to both the porch and terrace leading to the spa and pool below.

The master suite offers a delightful room to relax with views of the River from every angle, as well as a master bath with soaking spa tub and his and her walk in closets and gas fireplace. Off the master suite is a cozy sunroom, perfect for gazing at the River as the moon shines over the house.

The entire top level of this fabulous house is a home office fit for a King with a separate conference area, full bath, numerous built in cabinets and bookcases as well as the River views which might distract even our founding father.

To complete this amazing estate, there is a three car garage as well as an in house apartment, sauna, pool house and separate building for sports equipment and tools.
