Property Description

Less than a mile from the DC Line sits a pristine wilderness area where one enjoys the raw beauty of year-round unobstructed views of the Potomac River. This family legacy property known as "The Hill", is on the market for the first time in over 40 years. What makes this 1.1 acre property so special is its location. It is perched directly above Little Falls, one of the widest points of the Potomac, with upriver views beyond the bend. Daily sightings of eagles, hawks and spectacular sunsets abound. The current home designed by Deigert and Yerkes in 1953 is a classic example of mid-century modern architecture, with walls of glass opening to the River. While only 10 minutes from downtown DC, this property has the power to transport you to a place of serenity and joy, making family celebrations and any form of entertaining a special memory that lasts a life time. This unique offering is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Glen Echo

Glen Echo is a small town, founded in 1904, located between the banks of the Potomac and Bethesda. Its main attraction is Glen Echo Park. Established near the end of the 19th century with the advent of electric rail, the park featured amusement rides and was used to hold “Chautauqua” cultural events. It was also the stage for an important scene during the Civil Rights Movement. Like many of the facilities in and around Washington, Glen Echo was segregated for 63 out of 70 years of its history. The park opened its gates to all in 1961 after a group of college students staged a sit-in protest on the carousel. In 1968 the park closed and was placed under the supervision of the National Park Service in 1971.

Quality of Life:

Glen Echo is a quiet, residential suburb only three miles outside of the District. Unique housing options abound. Glen Echo features everything from small, modern cabins and cottages to pre-Civil War frame houses.
