Charming Victorian farmhouse-style homes like this one can be found in Vienna. A wraparound porch welcomes visitors, and the front door is framed by blue shuttered windows. The light blue HardiePlank exterior is 10 years old.

This distinctive dwelling also features an attached log cabin brought from the Shenandoah Valley and built during George IIIís day—circa 1785. The property also provides the modern luxury of a heated swimming pool.

The entrance hall of the Victorian home displays refinished hardwood floors that continue throughout most of the main level, including the living and dining rooms on both sides of the foyer. All three areas also have crown molding.

The living room features a fireplace with a brick surround, built-in bookshelves and full-length windows. The dining room offers chair rail, a built-in corner china cabinet, a chandelier that conveys and a bay window with a window seat facing the side porch. Both rooms take advantage of the wooded views that are also seen throughout the house.

Behind the dining room, the updated kitchen displays cherry cabinets, a central island, and a desk with a wine rack, shelves and cabinets. The upscale appliances include a four-burner Viking gas range and Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer.

A tiled breakfast area rests beneath a slanted, skylit ceiling. A wall of windows is here and a glass door opens onto the blue stone patio, which features a wisteria-covered pergola.

Adjoining the breakfast area, the lower level of the historic log cabin forms the family room. A beamed ceiling and stone fireplace enhance the rugged 18th-century farmhouse atmosphere. A wall of full-length wood-framed windows is also found here, as well as doors leading to the deck, where steps descend to the pool.

An office or bedroom is also on this level. Sliding-glass doors open onto the deck, and the space adjoins the powder room behind the entrance hall stairway.

Upstairs, the rear master bedroom consists of the log cabinís second floor and includes a stone fireplace. The adjoining office provides a built-in desk with cabinets, while the master bath features a jetted tub, a separate corner shower and dual sinks with granite counters. Another rear bedroom boasts an adjoining bath. Two front bedrooms share a bath; one bedroom provides a built-in desk and the other includes a bookcase.

The stairs also lead to the lower level, where a sliding-glass door opens to the pool area. Both the side-loading two-car garage and the side porch adjoin the first-floor mudroom and the breakfast area beyond.

The Great Falls Village Centre with a Safeway is three miles away. The public schools are Colvin Run Elementary, Cooper Middle and Langley High.
