Invisible from the street and set on two and a quarter acres of woodland with American Elms, fig trees, pine, magnolia, wisteria and dogwood, this one of a kind property is a true sanctuary away from the bustle of modern Alexandria. With four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the low-slung main house, designed in 1939 by Frank Lloyd Wright-trained architect, Charles Callander, remains nearly unchanged from 1940.
Designed for entertaining, the home features a variety of gathering spaces, inside and out, including a screened in porch built around a giant sycamore tree, a second story balcony overlooking the large expansive yard, and outdoor access from all main level rooms to brick seating areas and a covered patio.
A separate 1,700 square foot two-story guest house overlooking a large swimming pool was designed by another Wright apprentice, Jone Thurmond, and compliments the design of the Main House with similar architectural details inside and out.
