This 1906 New England River Home is located on the coveted east side of the George Washington Parkway in a country setting. Originally built as a summer cottage sitting on the banks of the Potomac River, it was moved in the 1930s to its current location. As the family grew over the years, the home was expanded multiple times. Currently sitting on a tranquil .76-acre parcel with idyllic lawn and river views, its just 20 minutes to downtown DC and 5 minutes to Old Town. This captivating home is a timeless gem that has been recently renovated blending classic charm with modern comfort. The owners have cherished their family home and are now offering it to others who will have the same passion.

Approaching the property, you’re greeted by a picturesque setting and lush green landscaping with mature trees framing the residence.
