The cabin to make other cabin's jealous!

All the charm and character that you could imagine with all the conveniences of a premiere N. Bethesda location. The home includes five fireplaces and wide pine floors aged to a priceless patina. It also includes a log cabin that was home to Josiah Henson; slave, minister, abolitionist, lecturer, author and model for "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe. The property has been featured in the Washington Post and several local publications. The grounds include over an acre of lush gardens close to Metro (train) stops; shops; restaurants; and White Flint Mall, a small part of a 3,697 acre land grant recorded in 1694. The existing home sits at the forefront of the prestigious Luxmanor subdivision. It dates back to the later part of the 18th century. By 1850 it was the manor home of a 500 acre farm owned by Isaac Riley and cared for by Josiah Henson. In 1920, Morton Luchs (famed developer and partner of Shannon & Luchs Real Estate) acquired the farm in the name of the Luxmanor Corporation, then sold the house and cabin to William and Levina Bolten, who reportedly hired White House architect Lorenzo Winslow to perform a tasteful and correct remodeling in order to retain the antique charm. Marcel and Hildegard Mallet-Prevost acquired the property in 1963. Mrs. Mallet-Prevost recently passed (at 100 yrs. old) while still living in the tranquility of this peaceful hideaway amidst the burgeoning N. Bethesda real estate market.
