Troxell Manor-a 1920’s Tudor Revival. The beautiful manor house on 3.6+ acres features a 1920’s craftsmanship that is no longer available today. Troxell Manor is perfectly sited and set back from Georgetown Pike. The 2.5 story stucco, stone, and half-timbered home gives off a charm not available in most homes and promises a grand, yet cozy interior within.
The front door is a classic Tudor plank oak door which leads into a two-story Great Hall. The Great Hall is ideal for a living room or entertaining area with the overhead gallery displaying artwork. This room features three Tudor arched entryways leading to the living room on the left, the dining room on the right, and the rear hall under the staircase. The fully oak-paneled living room has 10-foot beamed ceilings, intricate crown molding, and a large rustic fieldstone fireplace. The room offers views to the front and back gardens through two sets of five casement windows. To the right of the grand foyer is the dining room, which features another floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace and swinging door to the kitchen.
Another heavy Tudor door opens the rear of the home to the back garden, tennis court and garden shed. The garden shed, originally a stable, is ideal for storage and adds additional old-world charm to the yard. The tennis court was renovated in 2007 with a Har-Tru ClayTech surface which is highly resilient and rapidly returns to playability in all types of weather.The garden is a mix of flat and rolling lawn with mature trees which provide screening from neighboring properties. A pool can easily be accommodated in several different parts of the garden. An extra buffer of land between the privately-owned gravel Bulls Neck Road and Potomac Knolls protects the property to the west and creates even more privacy.
