Just in time for the holidays, this gated estate will be fully completed next month. Since the early 19th century, the village of Langley has been an important crossroads linking the City of Washington to Virginia and points west. Federal Hill was part of the expansive Langley Estate named by Thomas Lee for his ancestral estate in England. Today, the next great chapter of this historic estate is being written. With a keen eye on its important heritage, Federal Hill is a new estate residence which reflects classic architectural lines and timeless materials of stone, copper and slate. Inside, the residence features the most modern and luxurious amenities fitting a world-class estate residence. Positioned on a prominent hilltop, Federal Hall commands views in all directions.
