Although I'm not in the market for a new home, it never hurts to look, right? I've lived in Northern Virginia for almost 12 years, so staying in the Washington DC area makes sense. Obviously, I would want something bigger than where I currently live. My child and Ziggy could always use extra space. A man cave, particularly one with stadium seating would be fantastic. A yard is a must. A home near nature would be rather unique in this urban/suburban area and would be a nice bonus. You know, let's go crazy. I want to live in a house where I never use the same bathroom twice in the same day. I also want to be able to host friends and family. Perhaps a place where I can invite the entire Pittsburgh Penguins roster over for dinner.
Well, I found the perfect place in nearby McLean, Virginia.
This 10-bedroom, 15-bathroom single family home is 10,350 square feet. I think I can make that work. The lot is just under 100,000 square feet. I have no idea how this equates to acres, but I'm going to guess that it's more than 1 acre. The only drawback is that the house is on the market for $45 million. I feel like I can negotiate this price down, but it may still be slightly out of my price range.
