This home is a perfect example of one where history meets the modern world. It is located in Fairfax, Virginia and has been home to Thomas Lord Fairfax (who was better known as a friend of President George Washington) in the mid eighteenth century. This is also one of the oldest privately owned townhouses in Fairfax. The home was built in 1801 by William Yeaton who designed the tombs for George & Martha Washington at Mt. Vernon. The home on Cameron Street is on sale for $5.995M.
Thomas Lord Fairfax along with his family lived at this home from 1830 to 1846. That’s also how this home got its name. The home features on the National Register of Historic Places. The sprawling 10,131 square feet Federal design property has been restored with Adam inspired woodwork, courtesy George Andrew and maintained in an attempt to preserve its history. It has also been appropriately expanded to meet the standards of the twenty-first century.
Federal design elements are reflected throughout the home. Beautiful ornate woodwork, arched doorways, Palladian windows in the dining room and a detailed plaster medallion in the living room –all contribute to the home’s grand and timeless appeal. The five-bedroom home also has a library complete with fireplace, a game room, a beautiful garden with gazebo and a garage and two extra parking spaces. If you’ve always been wanting to live in historic paradise that has countless stories to tell, this home would be just perfect.
