Driving Directions

First time on the market in 35 years, this important, historic house will amaze you. Built in 1789 by Lawrence Hooff, Sr., this distinguished brick townhouse was once home to George Washington's nephew and heir to the Mount Vernon Estate, Bushrod Washington, who served as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and presumably used the two front rooms as his law offices and the upper levels as the family living quarters. Today, this fine 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath residence embodies the historic beauty of yesteryear with modern conveniences including generously proportioned rooms, original hardwood floors, 12 over 12 windows, exquisite built-ins, off-street parking, and a wonderful private patio. This timeless home greets you with an airy entrance hall boasting 10' ceilings graced by an elegant hand carved archway. Entertaining is effortless in the spacious library featuring a wood burning fireplace, oversized windows, and custom bookshelves. A stately dining room with French doors overlooking the courtyard is a lovely setting for gatherings. It is believed that President George Washington dined here with his nephew. And in recent years President Bill Clinton dined here. Prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen enriched by a dramatic exposed brick wall and beamed ceiling. Set conveniently off the kitchen is a handsome family room featuring paneling from a barn in southern Virginia built in 1800, a fireplace and a glass door opens to the outdoors. A powder room is off the front hall to accommodate guests. Above the library sits a second-floor parlor showcasing the unparalleled craftsmanship of long ago. It is a vision of beauty with its arched entrance doorway and original glass fanlight, tall windows, fireplace, and built-in cabinetry setting the perfect tone for formal entertaining. A charming primary bedroom featuring original paneling and millwork, fireplace, and heart of pine floors provides an elegant respite. Additional second floor highlights include a light-filled guest suite, updated marble bath, and a large cedar closet. The third level includes 2 sunny bedrooms, a full bath and desk space. Surrounded by old brick walls, the delightful patio is adorned with a mature magnolia tree, roses, holly, and an espaliered pyracantha offering the perfect setting for al fresco dining. One off-street parking space for this property is located beyond the gate.
