Public: Once in multiple generations does a waterfront estate like River View become available for purchase. Sited on 16.5 acres of George Washington’s original Mount Vernon estate, a visit to River View reminds us of why Washington boldly proclaimed, “I had rather be on my farm than emperor of the world.” This one-of-a-kind property, and it’s sublime aspect, uniquely had the power to calm the mind of America’s founding father. Now, fully reconstituted, rebuilt and modernized, it is likely that President Washington would approve of this 21st century version of River View. Enter the estate via an impressive long stone-lined driveway and approach the newly built American Federal style residence masterfully designed with river views and natural light through out. Terraces with water views are accessed by nearly every room in the house and invite quiet moments for fresh air, contemplation, private dinners or birdwatching. Equally perfect for hosting hundreds of guests for special events. Designed by architect Jim Rill and constructed by West Wing Builders, special amenities include a large home gym with radius windows overlooking the Potomac, with adjacent spa area that includes an indoor resistance pool, spa, steam room and sauna. The gaming room has a full bar, pool table, 2 TV’s, hand crafted stone walls and also views of the river. The 15 seat movie theater allows for comfortable and safe screenings of the latest films. A large wood paneled reception room leads to a circular room with exceptional views of both the river and the gardens. The estate includes 400 feet of water frontage, a 3 bedroom 3 bath 2,600 square foot guest house, a fully reconstituted carriage house with 4 car spaces and a studio apartment, a waterfront dock and reproduction of english colonial boxwood and rose gardens (inspired by old blueprints found on the property). Existing tree groves have been improved to create your own private and lovely wooded areas. Throughout the 16.5 acres you will find that the all-new infrastructure is as impressive as is the beauty. The entire property is fully integrated with forward-thinking technology that integrates every aspect of the estate. Eco-sustainability has been considered in every aspect: Geothermal heating, extensive state-of-the-art well water management, 150 KW full-property back-up generators, security systems, utilities, information, entertainment systems are all controlled by a central bank of computers. This is not your typical “Smart House”; it is a “Brilliant House”. Superior geotechnical stabilization was completed along the shoreline and under the house foundation location. 140 auger cast piles were installed along the water edged of the property to prevent future erosion. 15 caissons, each 42″ wide and dug 40 feet deep, were installed under the main house foundation; extraordinary infrastructure by anyone’s standards. This significant waterfront property is located just 10 miles from the Nation’s Capitol via the tree-lined George Washington Memorial Parkway, and is easily accessible to the regions three airports that service both private and commercial aviation. It offers an unrivaled natural sanctuary, yet is just minutes from the dining, cultural and educational offerings of Old Town Alexandria, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. Note: Listing includes 3 parcels(16.5 acres) : Lot A, Tax ID 1022 01 0022E, Lot B, Tax ID 1022 01 0022F, Lot C, Tax ID 1022 01 0022G. Please see all 3 parcels for total taxes and assessed values.
