“I had rather be on my farm than emperor of the world.”
That’s high praise from the father of our country for this beautiful property in Virginia. This home sold recently for a whopping $48 million, the highest price ever for a residence in Virginia, Maryland or Washington D.C.
A View From Every Room
The 16,000 square foot home has 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. Almost every room in this home has a view of the Potomac River. The terraces, patios and gardens include 400 feet of water frontage and a private dock.
One of a Kind
The 16.5 acres were originally part of the Mount Vernon estate. George Washington purchased 1,800 acres of land along the Potomac in 1760. This property was carved out and established as a private residence in 2015.
Mount Vernon Tours
You can’t tour this new home, but millions visit the Mount Vernon museum which includes the original home built by George Washington a short distance away.
