About This Old House

Incredible Location! This home is in the Herndon Historic District . . . one block from Town Center with its shops and restaurants. Herndon is undergoing a period of tremendous investment. Construction is beginning on an expanded Town Center that will include mixed use buildings built around a 18,000 sq ft. art center. It is close to the DC Metro Silver Line which takes commuters into Tyson’s Corner and Washington DC. It is minutes from the Dulles Airport. Read about Herndon Town Center here.

The House:
A stately American Foursquare on .64 acres, It features over 2700 sq ft of (above grade) living space +Basement + Attic +2,400 sq ft Barn/Garage. Notable for its solid brick construction and impressive front porch, the house exemplifies early 20th Century craftsmanship. Unusually large rooms and high ceilings make the traditional floor plan feel surprisingly modern and spacious. Wide, half-turn staircases, with broad landings provide easy access to the second floor, the attic, and the basement. This safety feature makes the home easy to navigate for people and pets of all ages. HW floors throughout the 1st and 2nd floors, updated kitchen, 4BRs, 2BTHs. Abundant closet space throughout. A light-filled attic could be finished to create a 4th level. The raised foundation allows generous light into the basement windows and protects the main floor from the elements. Original windows and doors are present throughout the house. . Beautiful stain glass windows add color to the dining room, family room and foyer. The private backyard has a new patio and landscaping. The entire house has been repainted. The interior walls are primed in light gray and are ready for a new owner’s vision. Pictures of the formal living room prior to painting give a sense of the size and versatility of the space. All rooms are larger than they appear in the unfurnished photos. It is a short walk to the community center, art center, library, senior center, shops, restaurants, public transportation, parks and the W&O trail.

In the early 20th Century, the house was owned by the town doctor. He ran a thriving practice out of a small office located off the foyer. This office space with its private entrance/exit to the porch remains part of the house today. In the 1980s and 1990s the house served as the residence and business for an antique dealer who specialized in antique lighting. A number of antique fixtures remain from this period including two wonderful light posts which line the driveway. The antique dealer also built a 2400 sq ft. barn/garage to store their antiques and truck. This 2 story accessory building has separate gas and electric meters and the current owners used it for Art and Hobby space. There is a large parking area in front of the garages. Great for visiting family and large parties.

Current owner is relocating due to a job opportunity and is sad to leave such an amazing home and community.
