Description

SIGNIFICANT $100K PRICE ADJUSTMENT. Rarely available. Almost 3 acres of cleared fenced flat land offering mature trees and SPACE TO BREATHE. Private, secluded lot for exceptional family living where history meets the 21st century. Room for a pool. 1213 Towlston Road is a bucolic 2.4+ acre estate convenient to Tysons, DC and Dulles airport, but worlds away. Steeped in Virginia history, the original 5,568 acres known as Towlston Manor was owned by several members of the Fairfax family and was visited several times by George andMartha Washington. The original 4 room structure built c. 1786 has been authentically maintained. In the 1930's the home and land were purchased by C .J.S. "Jack" and Ethel Durham who devotedly restored the one and one-half story clapboarded house. Ethel was an expert horticulturalist and today the property reflects the careful attention of its past owners, as stately trees shade the expansive grounds and flank the open field. In 1997 Towlston Grange was sold to its current owners who worked with architect Susan Pierce of Commonwealth Home Design to create an award winning design which honored the integrity of the original structure and successfully aesthetically assimilated a large addition to provide for today's way of life. Although many of the original details of the home remain, including pine plank flooring and stone chimney, modern updates feature an open floor plan which incorporates an expansive kitchen, family room with fireplace, and breakfast room. Surrounding French doors bring in light while providing immediate access to outdoor living Virginians enjoy practically year round. With six bedrooms on the upper level, this home truly accommodates friends and family alike. In 2013 the former "potting shed" was completely reconstructed and modernized for use as a HOME OFFICE, artist's studio, yoga/workout studio or teen hangout. Roughed in for a full bath, this detached cottage could also provide private guest quarters. This private, pastoral setting is centrally located near a myriad of dining and shopping options in Tysons, world class performance venue at Wolftrap, and access to major arteries and transportation by air, road or rail. Towlston Grange is a truly unique opportunity to own a piece of history while enjoying the comfort and conveniences of the modern world. Full history can be found in Documents.
