Welcome to 104 Blaisdell in historic Falmouth VA. Nicely located so close to Downtown Fredericksburg, Mary Washington Hospital and Mary Washington College, this home has a lot to offer. Just a mile from 95 and the new HOV lanes, and offering the the privacy and serenity of a wooded homesite on the River. This unique Rappahannock River property has watched history unfold over the last 200 years on the foothills of this historic river. With over 5000' of living space, 104 Blaisdell was built in 1990 and is one of the most exquisite estate properties on the banks of the Rappahannock. At the base of the river, just below the Blaisdell Estate, are the remains of The Embrey Dam, constructed in the 1800's until meeting its demise in 2004. With some of the remnants still in place, this area of the Rappahannock is known as the John W. Warner Rapids. Senator Warner successfully secured $10,000,000 for the removal of the Embrey Dam at no cost to the local governments. Forever a place in history, Blaisdell has the benefit of amazing views of the Rappahannock River from atop this unique estate home site.
