Offered for the first time since its 1973 subdividing, lots 2 and 3 in Cornwell Farm, Great Falls, total 11.54 acres of land including a 1978 residence. These lots are, arguably, two of the finest in this sought after community. Homes in Cornwell Farm range from quaint ramblers to some of the finest houses surrounding Washington D.C. Cornwell Farm has a storied history dating back centuries, to when the Great Falls area was, despite its close proximity to Washington D.C., utterly rural. The earliest chain of title refers to 399 acres being granted to Guy Broadwater by Lord Thomas Fairfax on July 16th, 1731 followed by its sale seven years later for the princely sum of one hundred English pounds to a Mr. Henry Watson. First evidence of the Cornwell name appears on February 4th, 1868, when Mine Ridge Farm, followed shortly thereafter by '200 and about 8 acres' were acquired by Benjamin and Phoebe Cornwell, for $1,600 and $900 respectively. Jumping ahead to a little over 100 years later, a group of concerned local citizens, in the early 1970's, banded together to counter a push to develop, what was by now Cornwell Farm, into a clustered housing development. Ironically, with the support of the potential developer, who was won over by the passion and politeness of the group, which had pleaded with him to allow them to purchase the property and subdivide it in to between five and six acre lots, with strict covenants and restrictions as to what could be built, the 200 acres was saved and survives to this day, and in perpetuity, as a unique horse centric enclave of properties with diverse architectural styles. Today, two of those original five plus acre lots are available to acquire as one transaction from their original owner. Lots 2 and 3 are, arguably, the finest two sites in Cornwell Farm, sitting on the corner of Ad Hoc Road (named after the Ad Hoc committee which we may thank for masterminding the conservation efforts which resulted in what we see today) and Cornwell Farm Drive. The residence, which was built in 1978, sits toward the rear of lot 2, to the west of what was an early connector between Cornwell Farm Drive and Georgetown Pike. It is a prefabricated Canadian Deck House, of semi-contemporary design, featuring large numbers of tall windows, four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Lot 2 also has a lovely 8-stall, center aisle barn with hay loft and wash stall, lovingly built by the owners around 1980 and a tennis court with a gazebo nearby. Lot 3 is all horse pasture, with wood 3-board horse fencing and a run in shed. The covenants and restrictions allow for one residence per lot, which overrides the county's zoning of one dwelling unit per two acres. The covenants include delightful bridle path easements which allow equestrians to reach Great Falls Park and beyond without the need of a horse box!
