Since the early 19th century, the village of Langley has served as a prominent crossroads in the history of Northern Virginia. Overlooking this historic neighborhood, Maple Hill remains the largest and most important undeveloped estate site in this prestigious region.Langley was the ideal stopping point for farmers and merchants traveling to and from Georgetown dating back to the 18th Century. Today, it remains home to a number of important historical structures, including the Mackall House which was built in 1858 and which is now the home of the Country Day School. Just around the corner, Hickory Hill, a former home of the Kennedy family, dates to just after the Civil War and remains one of the region~s most extraordinary residences.Encompassing over 3.75 acres and two separate lots in prestigious Langley Farms, neighboring Maple Hill rivals the finest estate site in the Metropolitan area. A private, gated entrance introduces the estate. Passing through the gates, the natural topography reveals a long, gentle slope leading up to multiple flat and gracious building sites, all of which afford tremendous privacy. Majestic, specimen trees punctuate the estate, including the namesake Sugar Maple tree located just off the crest of the hill. On the southern and western side of the parcels, a bucolic streambed flows into Turkey Run and eventually to the Potomac River. Seventy year old stone paths, laid by hand, allow for commodious walks along the perimeter of the site which is designated as a Virginia Bird Sanctuary.In addition to extraordinary natural amenities, the location of Maple Hill is unparalleled. The convenient amenities of McLean are just minutes away, and downtown Washington, DC and Tysons Corner are equally convenient. All of the region~s major airports are accessible in less than 25 minutes. Some of the area~s finest schools and parks are also just steps away.To set the tone for the countless opportunities afforded by this extraordinary estate site, a complete set of architectural plans for a picturesque gatehouse and guest lodge designed by a nationally-recognized architectural firm and interior design team are included with the offering.Available for only the second time in over 70 years, Maple Hill is the most extraordinary opportunity for a world-class estate in the heart of the region~s most prestigious neighborhood.
