A Piece of George Washington’s Original Mount Vernon Estate Is for Sale for $60 Million

Gordon Beall for TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

Ever wonder what it’s like to live like the first president? Now’s your chance!

A piece of George Washington’s original Mount Vernon estate in Alexandria, Virginia, is up for sale. The historic property, which spans 16.5 acres on the Potomac River, is up for sale for $60 million — the most expensive listing price the city has ever seen, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Sited on 16.5 acres of George Washington’s original Mount Vernon estate, River View overlooks the Potomac River from a commanding bluff. Today it is for sale for $60 million.

Tobias Lear was famously one of three people at Washington’s deathbed. Today, America’s first president would certainly approve of the updated River View: a 16,000 square foot, seven bedroom house completed just two years ago. Designed by architect Jim Rill and constructed by West Wing Builders, special amenities of the grand
