A rare chance to own a piece of George Washington's Historic Waterfront Estate! Located on the original Mansion House Farm of Mount Vernon, this spectacular home features three stories of glass overlooking the Potomac River! One-occupant home on .87 acre lot, literally a few hundred yards from George Washington's Mt Vernon Estate. Yes, the property needs some updating, but just look at the breathtaking views from virtually all rooms. Over 6200 sqft of finished space on 3 levels. Huge rooms with a wonderful circular layout for entertaining or simply enjoying the Potomac River. The expansive River views begin as you cross the threshold into the 2-story grand Foyer with curved staircase. Straight ahead is the Dining Room with its wall of glass, and you go right or left from there to the Living Room Overlook or the Kitchen Overlook. Four doors take you out to the balcony, where you can have your breakfast or your evening repast.

Six or seven bedrooms, including main level with full bath. Four upstairs, one main, one lower, one used as a River Observatory. The Primary and Secondary Bedrooms upstairs have their own private Balconies.

In the back yard, there are two circular Patios overlooking the River that have been the scene of many a Family Gathering, including Weddings. It is simply a spectacular location for entertaining! To the left of the Patios, the family had always thought of adding a Pool.

There are few locations on the Potomac in Fairfax County that are truly Waterfront. Several communities have large buffers between the houses/lots and the River. The Belle Rive lots go right to the water; several have private Docks. This home has a perfect location for a Dock on its right/southeastern corner. Alternately, a quarter mile away is Mansion House Yacht Club (and Pool)

The Estate needs some updating - primarily Kitchen and Baths. It has hardwoods on the main level; carpet upstairs. Three-zone HVAC (heat pumps), & a second Kitchen downstairs. Natural gas is available on the street.

For an idea of value/opportunity, 4001 Belle Rive Terrace sold in March for $3,200,000. Riverfront as well, and nicely remodeled in 2017. Their basement is underground, versus ours with full River views from the walkout Lower Level. It had only 2,865 sqft on the main and upper levels vs this house at 4,522. The per-square-foot price for 4001 BRT was $1,235. Ours is half - $659 per sqft. 3901 BRT IS MUCH MORE HOUSE AT HALF THE PRICE PER SQFT!!! Plenty of room to make changes and still be well below recent waterfront comps.

We are happy to do a FaceTime tour of the house with you any time!
