'AS IS' ESTATE SALE DO NOT ENTER PROPERTY WITHOUT LISTING AGENT
A rare opportunity to restore a residence inspired by George Washington's house in Mt Vernon. The home was built in 1932 and sits on 2.37 acres of land close to the George Washington Parkway and Rt. 123 in McLean, Virginia. Only minutes from downtown Washington.
Ranleigh Manor was originally a dairy farm dated back to 1840, and was a Union Army camp site during the civil war. In 1920 the modest farmhouse was transformed by the architectural firm of Warren & Watmore of New York to the Georgian colonial style of George Washington's Mt Vernon by Randolph Leigh. During World War II Ranleigh was the home of Field Marshall Lord Wilson and Lady Wilson and then to Herbert Brownell of Eisenhower's cabinet and still later to the eminent diplomat Chester Bowles.
In 1977 Ranleigh was purchased and enlarged. The addition is accessible via the solarium and includes a small one bedroom apartment above the garage and a separate in-law suite with bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, sitting area.
