Abstract: A brick home in Farnham, Virginia, recently became the oldest property of the week.

The four-bedroom Indian Banks estate sits prominently on 17 acres of land.


A cousin of George Washington is said to have lived here, and the initials of the first U.S. president are carved into one of the bricks.


Other antique treasures on the market this week include a home relocated to North Carolina, a Georgian beauty on Cape Cod, and an inexpensive mid-aisle colonial in Connecticut.
