The tour includes a mix of historic, traditional and contemporary homes ranging from a home built in the 1750s with ties to the Revolution and used as a hospital during the Civil War, to a contemporary Japanese-influenced home built on a hillside with terraced gardens, a pool and patio that are perfect for entertaining. The tour includes private gardens with water features, sculptures, outdoor lighting and sound systems, inviting stone pathways and landscapes with mature trees including the oldest and largest sycamore tree in Fairfax County. Enjoy exploring three centuries of homes and gardens in Northern Virginia.
