Own a Piece of Fairfax County History: A Historic Home with Endless Potential

Overview
Step back in time and become the proud owner of a remarkable piece of Fairfax County history. This unique property, set on 3.94 acres, is a testament to America's rich past, offering a blend of historic charm and modern potential.

Historical Significance
Original Log Home (1730s): The foundation of this estate began with the construction of a large for its time log two story home in the 1730s, capturing the early colonial spirit.
Main Home (1856): The centerpiece of the property is the main house, built in 1856. This structure offers seven bedrooms, wide plank floors, and five fireplaces, showcasing the architectural styles of the mid-19th century.
Renovation (1966): A thoughtful renovation in 1966 preserved many original features while updating the home for modern living.

Property Features
Foundation of an Old Tavern: On the grounds, there exists an old foundation believed to have once been a tavern. This adds a layer of mystery and historical intrigue, suggesting the property's role in the Dranesville community's social and commercial life.
Additional Structures: The estate includes a large barn and a smokehouse, further enhancing its historical value and utility.

Historical Context
Battle of Dranesville: Situated on the western edge of this Civil War battle, the property is steeped in military history. During this conflict, Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart's cavalry clashed with Union Brigadier General E.O.C. Ord's forces near the present-day intersection of Georgetown Pike and Leesburg Pike. The home's occupants likely witnessed these events, adding to the narrative richness of the estate. According to a local historian, the family was believed to have hidden in the basement as mini balls and possibly cannon shot struck the home.
Potential National Historic Registry Listing: While not currently on the National Historic Registry, the home if combined in a joint application with the adjoining property has significant potential for such a designation once restored to its original form. This status could offer preservation incentives and further cement the property's place in American history.

Potential Uses
Private Residence: Ideal for a family passionate about preserving history, this home offers a unique living experience surrounded by heritage and character.
Bed and Breakfast: With its historical allure and ample space, the property could be transformed into a charming bed and breakfast, attracting guests interested in experiencing a piece of the past.
Historical Research and Education: Partnering with local historical societies or educational institutions could provide opportunities for tours, reenactments, and other educational activities.

Future Discoveries
We are currently collaborating with the Fairfax County Historical Committee to uncover more stories and details about the property's past. This ongoing research promises to reveal additional fascinating insights, further enhancing the estate's historical value. One such recent discovery for those who grew up in the area is that the local T.V. personality, Ranger Hal, from the 1950's and 60's had owned the home next door.

Conclusion
This Fairfax County home is more than just a property; it is a portal to the past, offering a unique opportunity to own and preserve a significant piece of American history. Whether as a private residence or a public venture, this estate holds the promise of many more stories to be told and memories to be made.
