This one is 14K sf, dripping in marble and just across Potomac River from the original
Want to live at the White House but don’t fancy all the handshaking and speechmaking? There is a house for you in McLean, Virginia.
A 1995-built replica of the original hit the market for $2.7 million, according to Mansion Global. The mansion’s address, 1111 Towlston Road, is no 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue though it does have a certain charm.
The three-story home mirrors President Biden’s official residence — at least its facade — which has a neoclassical design. The white marble and white-walled interiors deviate from the real White House’s interiors, although there is an oval office with a balcony.
There is also a sauna, five fireplaces and a three-car garage. The property totals about 1.6 acres and includes a gated entrance.
Owned by U.S. Bank, it’s not even the only home in McLean with a distinctly White House-derived design. A 12,500-square-foot home built in 1989 sold at auction in 2016, according to the report.
