Most of us know about George Mason from his famous words; “That all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent natural Rights… among which are the Enjoyment of Life and Liberty, with the Means of acquiring and possessing Property, and pursuing and obtaining Happiness and Safety.”
Gunston Hall is located just a few miles from another historic home which you can buy.
One of the historic homes you can buy is Bel Air Plantation in Woodbridge VA. Currently offered by TTR Sothebys International Realty for $1,100,000. At the entrance to the drive to the property is a Prince William County historical marker providing a small glimpse of the background of the property. Built in 1740 by Major Charles Ewel the current property encompasses 25 acres.
Besides being built in a similar Georgian style, both Gunston Hall and Bel Air Plantation were frequented by George Washington on his travels up throughout Virginia. You can legitimately say “George Washington Slept Here” if you buy this home.
Speaking of George Washington, no Mount Vernon isn’t for sale, but you could move into a condo at the recently converted George Washington Club. Listed by Long & Foster, Inc the 3 BR/2.5 BA condo is one of four condos in the converted 1700’s property. The George Washington Club is located just outside of Old Town Alexandria.
These are just a couple of the historical homes currently listed for sale in Fairfax and Prince William County, VA.
