Fort Hunt, VA Homes For Sale

Named for a long-ago Civil War era installation overlooking the Potomac River, the town of Fort Hunt, Virginia is now an affluent community with more than 16,000 residents and some very upscale waterfront homes for sale. Just how nice are these dwellings? How about a massive French Country-style mansion with stunning water views, listing for just a tad under $3 million? And if that listing has been snatched up before you read this, not to worry—there’s plenty of other properties that are just as impressive.

This southern Alexandria community was once part of River Farm which dates back to the mid-1600s. The farm was purchased a century later by none other than George Washington and still stands today as the headquarters for the American Horticulture Society. The fort itself was used during the Spanish-American War, with building later used during WWII. Mansions dating to the 1930s often housed high-ranking military officials. Batteries and other remains are now part of Fort Hunt Park.

Now that we’re done with ancient history, we can move on to the modern day community whose neighbors include Belle Haven to the north and Mount Vernon to the south. You'll find a surprisingly well-stocked inventory of homes for sale here during a time when new listings are generally down in Washington Metro, You won’t find condos for sale here, however—this is all about detached single-family dwellings. 

Prices generally start around $400,000 for a handful of small Ramblers and other cottages. After that the curve starts to steepen, jumping into the mid-to-high six figures and continuing to climb. There is a surprisingly large number of million dollar homes for sale, often custom built and many with river views. As for architectural styles, you’ve got all manner of Colonials, Georgian, French Country, Mediterranean, Tudors and Cape Cods.

With a number of smaller subdivision and neighborhoods within its bounds, Fort Hunt is located south of Belle Haven and north of Mount Vernon.
