Live like a President! Part of the estate that inspired George Washington to declare he'd 'rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world' up for sale for $25m (but it's still a fixer-upper in need of major repair)
A spectacular 16.5-acre estate originally part of George Washington's famed Mount Vernon is up for sale
The property is named River View Estate after its 383 feet of uninterrupted vistas of the Potomac River
The estate boasts a 6,000-square foot manor home, 2,000-square foot guest house, four-car garage, carriage house and staff quarters
However the Sotheby's listing warns that it is 'poised for modern renovations'
