The Barnet Sanders house is a unique farmhouse located in Great Falls, VA. Its history spans over an entire century, with sections from as early as 1872. The home was originally built as a log cabin, but it has since been expanded to include more space. There are several one-of-a-kind characteristics, such as original log siding, a country-style kitchen, and original brick walkways. 

The home is located on 1.91 acres of beautiful land. In addition to the 3-story farmhouse, the property includes a reconstructed pool house, which was once used as a chicken coop. It's been fully renovated to offer even more living space with a sizable living area, bedroom, and full bathroom. Right outside, the in-ground swimming pool adds even more unique charm to the property. 

The exterior also features gorgeous fauna throughout the property. Various trees and open land provide a country feel. Despite being so close to DC, Great Falls is a quiet and pastoral area. It has one-of-a-kind character with rolling hills, estates, farmhouses, colonial and craftsman style homes. Unlike anywhere else in Northern Virginia, Great Falls is truly a special place to live. It offers the country life and the city life, making it a distinct area that gives residents the best of both worlds. It’s ideal for those that enjoy village life while also having close access to everything in the region. 

The property is also close to Great Falls Park, a beautiful destination that features trails along the Potomac River that lead into the Mather Gorge. The falls has an interesting history, dating back from 10,500 BC. In the 18th and 19th century, part of it was used as a canal to transport resources. In 1966, the National Park Service acquired nearly 800 acres of land of what is now recognized as Great Falls Park.

326 Walker Rd, Great Falls, VA is currently under contract after being listed by HBC Group’s Karen Briscoe. This extraordinary home features 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and has distinctive characteristics throughout, including original materials and a wrap-around porch with views of the land. The Barnet Sanders House is a special piece of history that tells a significant story of its presence in Great Falls, VA.
