6404 Washington Blvd.
Arlington, VA | $1,449,900
Unique opportunity to own “Memory House”, which is a landmark in Arlington, VA. It is a 1890s Victorian Queen Anne, Painted Lady, as seen in Bed and Breakfast magazine as well as Unique Inns of Virginia. The home is a rare and beautiful find and hasn’t been up on the market for 17 years. It sits high off of Washington Boulevard on a double lot that is two blocks from the Metro. The home has 3221 sq ft. and been restored over the years to maintain the authenticity of 19th century architecture. The home retains much of its original architecture including built in china cabinets; lighting fixtures both original and reproduction; historic style wallpaper from Bradbury & Bradbury; reproduction Wilton carpet; heart pine flooring; steam heat with ornate radiators; Unico air conditioning; working transoms over the doors; and 10 foot ceilings throughout the home. The house, as formerly used, provided for 2 bedrooms and 2 bath master suites on the main level, 3 bedrooms and 1 bath on the upper level ( 2 of the upper bedrooms have individual sinks in the rooms), and 2 kitchens one on each level, which is ideal for entertaining or to accommodate guests. The basement is unfinished but is very usable work space and features a French drain system. The .29 acre property was open for the Virginia House and Garden Tour in 2006 to showcase the home and the meticulously landscaped yard and to see one of Arlington’s notable trees … a beautiful flowering Horse-chestnut tree. There is an amazing feature that is truly unbelievable and one of a kind that has been preserved in the home that shows the original, pencil caricature pictures from the original builders. If you love Victoriana and convenience of living 12 miles to DC, this is the perfect place to call home or to open its doors as a Airbnb. If you would like to explore this unique property, just call for a private showing!

“Making It Happen”
Long and Foster Real Estate
Middleburg, VA | $4,425,000
Stonyhurst is an iconic Virginia stone manor house. Its renovation garnered two awards from the American Institute of Architecture. Meanwhile, Rosemary R. Howe Interiors, also of Washington D.C., was brought in to faithfully redesign the inside in such a way as to retain the character of this lovely old house, while infusing it with twenty first century convenience. What we see today is a delightful American colonial revival country manor house, in pristine condition, centered on a large parcel of rolling land within a much sought after part of Virginia, yet within easy reach of the nation’s capital. Stonyhurst is well suited for both equestrian pursuits and outdoors activities, as a principal residence or weekend escape. Middleburg is the fox hunting capital of America.
