Once in a great while a property comes along that is so welcoming & comfortable, with such attention to detail, that it is mesmerizing. Wirtland circa 1850 is just such a property; understated in its unique opulence while at the same time being delightfully elegant. Original heart pine floors, doors, moldings, medallions, walnut staircase, lavish fireplace surrounds, windows & more make Wirtland an absolute treasure! Completed about 1850, Wirtland (a Gothic Revival Style Villa) was built by Dr. William Wirt, a medical doctor & son of a former Attorney General of the United States, (William Wirt 1772-1824) who served under both James Monroe & John Quincy Adams. A recurring theme throughout the interior & exterior is a series of Gothic arches that begin at the covered front portico & echo throughout. This stately mansion features two main living levels with a fabulous walk-out basement that is currently used for living & entertaining family & friends. A full attic on the 3rd floor level offers the opportunity for additional space. At its heart, Wirtland is a true country estate, a retreat, where the best of country living can be appreciated, reveled in & enjoyed.
