Built in 1905

Elmwood represents a unique opportunity to own a rambling estate and historic residence inside the Capital Beltway.
The property includes a grand farmhouse, built in 1905, with an attached wing constructed in 1879. Together they form a seven-bedroom home, tied together with generous wrap-around porches and patios for entertaining. A four-room log cabin and other outbuildings are situated in their original historic locations near the main house. Two additional lots, each 1 acre, have been added to the original property bringing the total acreage to 8.02. Bedroom on main level with wheel-in shower
A mile from McLean's central business district, the residence is set back from Old Dominion Drive, accessed by a curving 700+ foot private driveway. The grounds feature significant mature hardwoods, pines, azaleas, and a formally landscaped entrance courtyard with fountain.
Distinguished television journalist Roger Mudd and his wife acquired the property in 1972 and through significant restoration, made Elmwood their family home for almost fifty years.
Originally part of the Fairfax Land grant, "Elmwood" has been a working farm and family estate since the early 18th century. The original house was built in 1850 by Spencer Mottrom Ball but was destroyed during the Civil War. After the War, Ball's son William Selwyn ("Selly") returned to Elmwood, building the log "Bachelor's Hall" in 1876 and a larger house in 1879.
In 1900, John McLean, owner of the Washington Post, was granted a charter to build The Washington and Old Dominion railroad from Rosslyn to Great Falls. McLean bought rights of way along what would eventually become Old Dominion Drive, and the Ball family Family sold access through Elmwood; the stop there was then called "Ball's Hill." The surrounding public roads - including Ball's Hill Road, Mottrom Drive and others - capture some of the property's history.
