Martha Peterson has been flipping homes for more than 20 years, but when she came upon this century-old home in Old Town, she knew she wanted to keep it in the family. Once owned by George Washington (a pied -a-terre to his Mount Vernon estate 10 miles away, if you will), the house had been converted into apartments and fallen into disrepair over the years. Peterson and her son, Chase Whitley (a recent college grad who officially joined his mom’s business with this project), worked closely with historians at Mount Vernon to return it to its former glory. But, don’t look for stuffy interpretations of the founding father here. “We had a lot of fun with the history of the house, but we wanted to make it approachable,” says Peterson. “I would say it’s the cleanest, newest version of itself from what it was 100 years ago.” For more information, or to book a stay, visit thegeorgeofoldtown.com.
