The White House chief of staff now has a white house of his own.
Being part of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet certainly has its benefits. And for new Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, that includes the opportunity to snap up a prime piece of Washington, DC, real estate. That’s why Reince just purchased a five-bed, five-and-a-half-bath home in picturesque, nearby Alexandria, VA, for $1.249 million. Although his longtime home is a three-bed, two-bath house back in Kenosha, WI, which he bought back in 2003 for $262,900, it looks as if Reince wanted an upgrade from his Wisconsin digs to a place a tad closer to the nation’s capital.
Measuring in at 6,194 square feet, the craftsman-style home is located on a sprawling 1-acre lot with an expansive yard, great for his two children. Built in 2016, the home embraces modern amenities while maintaining a cozy, welcoming environment. A cascading staircase in the foyer streams upward to the second level, while an upgraded gourmet kitchen with a casual dining area is ideal for a busy family. There’s also a formal dining room, an office with large, bright windows, and a comfortable family room with a stone fireplace. The fully finished basement has a rec room, as well as a bedroom and full bath for a guest or au pair.
Reince certainly isn’t the only new White House employee who snagged some prime Washington, DC, property in anticipation of a new gig: Last month, Dr. Ben Carson, the new secretary of Housing and Urban Development, dropped $1.22 million on a Colonial estate in Vienna, VA. And back in January, first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, rented out a $5.295 million mansion in DC’s Kalorama neighborhood — coincidentally the same area where former President Barack Obama and his family have been living since his term ended.
