Tremendous opportunity to restore an enchanting colonial revival home









Living Area


Lot Size

27269 sq ft



Described as a 2 and a half story colonial revival style two bay frame dwelling with side passage entry and side facing gable roof and two gable roof dormers. The windows are paired and are fitted with 4/1 double hung sash.
Built 1888 by WH Nolan( Nowlan) (who had a local plumbing business)according to tax records although some of the historical data suggests prior to 1880. A structure on this site appears on an 1878 map of the city. This house originally fronted onto Cherry Street and may have once been a part of the Pond Estate. In former times the house may have had a porch all the way around it. **
Recognized by City of Falls Church as a historic property.
The two story frame barn with low gable roof and garage doors was originally built as a plumbers storage house in early to mid 20th century is located in the rear of the dwelling.
Property sustained damage in 1940’s as well as 1976 fire which demolished attic. Attic and other portions of the home were rebuilt. During 1976 the balloon frame structure of the original building was uncovered revealing the outline of the original gable.**

According to conversation with John Boyle in Zoning Administration office in City of Falls Church in February 2018, it appears that this property should be subdivideable if one were to create a pipe stem lot for the second lot and most likely remove the barn which has no exact proof of date. BARN MAY NOT BE REMOVED IF ITS BUILD DATE WAS PRIOR TO 1910. BUYER MUST PROVE DATE BUILT.
