The Rosedale Farmhouse in Cleveland Park, which was built in the 1730s, is thought to be the longest-standing home in Washington.

The original stone cottage was expanded into a farmhouse in 1794. The house was restored in 2002, and sits on a half-acre of land in the Rosedale Conservancy.

“You can see history in this house,” said Marin Hagen of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “It’s been preserved beautifully.”

The 5,200-square-foot home has four bedrooms, 10 fireplaces and a swimming pool with views to the National Cathedral. It is on the market for $5.3 million.
