A turn-key, classic Va estate in Keswick Hunt Country, the Annandale tract was acquired in 1804 by Revolutionary War veteran Sgt. Reuben Boston, who constructed a 2-story brick home w/ hipped roof, combining elements of the Federal & Neoclassical styles popular at the time. The property later passed to his son, & his son's children, remaining in the Boston family until 1871. Reuben's daughter named the property Annandale, for the town in Scotland from which her husband's clan emigrated. Tradition relates that there was a hospital at Annandale during the Civil War. The front elevation was altered to Georgian in the early 20th c. Under easement: approved expansion plans available.
