In 1950, Judge George M. Giammittorio, formerly of the Circuit Court of Alexandria, realized his vision of a luxurious estate with elements of formal European-style design. The mansion, at 2416 Ridge Road Dr. in Alexandria, has been owned by only two families in its more than six decades of existence and is listed for sale at $2.095 million.

One of Alexandria’s oldest magnolia trees is part of the gardens that surround the house. More than 100 varieties of birds, including bald eagles, have been seen on the 1.33-acre property, which has two brick patios and a built-in brick barbecue.

The Colonial-style house has numerous spaces for entertaining formally and casually, including a screened porch and a sunroom with a mahogany ceiling. The kitchen includes four ovens, a large island, a breakfast room, a Palladian window and a fireplace. Adjacent to the kitchen is a family room with another fireplace. Both rooms have large windows framing garden views and together the rooms provide an expansive space for entertaining.
