The farmhouse built in 1671 is the oldest list of the week

George washington was a wandering man. When we take a look at the oldest homes to hit the market each week on Realtor.com®, there is inevitably a mention of the country’s first president gracing the premises of one of them.

And Washington’s presence left residents with bragging rights that endure centuries later. This week is no different.

The Maockney Manor of Virginia dates from 1671 and takes the title of the oldest house of this week. According to the list, it was once the site of a public hall honored by General Washington and his founding father. Patrick henri.

A little further down the list is Snedecker Farm in New York City, a 69-acre farm dating back to 1740, which too boasts of having welcomed Washington!


Other ancient estates of note include the former Underground Railroad stop known as Wolley Stille and the 160-acre Pleasant Prospect Farm on the market for a whopping $ 15,485,000.
