The estate which is situated on over 16 acres of land, was last purchased by the former CEO of Lockheed Martin, Robert Stevens, and his wife, Michelle Stevens, in 2014 for $18.6 million.
Known as the River View Estate, the main house spans 16,000 square feet and is made up of seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms and features 400 feet of water frontage overlooking the Potomac River. It also comes with a three-bedroom, three-bath 2,600 square foot guest house.
It is also said to be part of the original 1,800 acres America’s founding father purchased in 1760, according to the American Horticultural Society, which still owns a portion of the original property, now a historic landmark that serves as a museum.
Mansion Global reported that the sale closed on Oct. 29 for $48 million, and included $2 million worth of furniture and personal property.
The home remained in Washington’s family until 1859 and has only changed hands a total of four times since then. Initially hitting the market in Sept. 2020 for $60 million, the home has seen modern renovations in the last century.
Special amenities include a home gym with radius windows overlooking the Potomac, an adjacent spa area with a sauna and steam room and an indoor resistance pool, according to the listing. There is also a movie theatre, a reception room that leads to views of the gardens, and a game room with a full bar and a pool table.
