And take in a Refreshingly Different View

Cool Breezes on the hilltop provide relief form the summer heat and tempt you to relax while taking in the expansive view. From the top you can see Maryland, Ft. Belvoir and the forested oasis of Huntley Meadows Park. In years past, the mostly treeless landscape provided views of the Potomac River, Mount Vernon and Woodlawn Plantation.

Freely Explore the rooms of this house. No ropes or barriers stand in your way. The rooms are unfurnished, so you can closely observe the elegant architectural details. Two special rooms offer an extraordinary view into the homes "bones," exquisitely displaying original rafters, bricks and plaster.
