    Description

    When you are working with a unique property, such as this, there are no comparable sales. Therefore, you do the best you can, and you start high. We've dropped the price a couple of times in the last few month, and are doing so again today. This one is a significant reduction. This unique property - 'The Rest' complete with an 1800's Colonial mansion, a guesthouse, a gazebo, pergola, a grape arbour, playhouse, porte cochere, passive pond, and the original millstone from Jones Mill - sits on just shy of half an acre and is only .2 miles to the Tenleytown metro. Perfect for a bed & breakfast, with 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths.... 2016 and 2018 District of Columbia changes to regulations regarding residential zoning, there is now legislation allowing historic properties to be used for lodgings. (These regulations are now in the Documents section.) Of course, anyone considering this should follow all due diligence required and consult with both legal and zoning authorities as needed. This property - one of the oldest houses in DC - has been owned only by 3 families since the 1700's. This is the first time it has been on the market in 46 years. The Rest is a perfect home and retreat. The land is fully fenced, private, with trees, bird baths, room to run and play, room to plant flowers and to garden. Inside there's an alcove, sitting rooms, and a guesthouse (with a kitchen) that could be an office, used as a school room, a studio, a place to do yoga, or for family and friend visits. Outside on warm days, there are the 37 feet of wraparound porch to enjoy, the gazebo for visits with friends, and the pergola for yoga or reading. Inside are spacious rooms, high ceilings, wavy blown glass windows, built-in cabinets, built-in bookcases, an alcove between the first and second floor, original hardwood floors, colonial hand-hewn massive beams held in place with wooden pegs, 8 fireplaces (some now ornamental) and a tower. From the tower the Washington Monument can be seen, and during the war of 1812, Dolley Madison is rumoured to have stood there and watched the White House burning. There are also rumours of this property being a part of the underground railroad. If you visit during an open house, or with an agent, ask to see the stairs accessible from the kitchen porch that open into the stone foundation basement. Or, as written above, you can live on the property and possibly open a beautiful bed and breakfast.
