Mount Vernon, VA Homes For Sale
Mention Mount Vernon homes for sale and most people usually think of stately columned manors. It’s an image we retain both from childhood history books and the reality of present day real estate listings. Yes, this historic community in the southern part of Alexandria, Virginia is known for palatial mansions overlooking the Potomac River. And yes, the town was named for the plantation that was once owned by George Washington—the nation’s first president.
The original estate still stands and is open to the public daily. Built by Washington over a 20-year period from 1758 to 1778, the Palladian structure with its sweeping veranda was the president’s country home until his death, and remained in his family for generations.
