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.
