Former United States Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has placed his five-bedroom, brick Colonial-style house in McLean, Va. on the market for $1,075,000.
Now teaching at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Tex., Gonzales, 54, was the U.S.' Attorney General from 2005 until 2007 and prior to that was President George W. Bush's White House Counsel. The Washington Post's Reliable Source columnists appear to have broken the story earlier this week of Gonzales' listing.
Built in 1966, Gonzales' 2,604-square-foot, center hall Colonial-style house has video-monitored entrances and a safe room off the master bedroom, the Post reported. Other features include four baths, hardwood floors throughout, custom built-ins, a security system, two separate living areas, a fully finished walk-out basement, and a kitchen with granite, a gas range and top-of-the-line cabinetry, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.35-acre (15,334-square-foot) lot include in-ground sprinklers and panoramic views, according to listing information.
Gonzales paid $1,050,000 through a trust (of which Timothy Schwartz is the trustee) to purchase the home in June 2005, according to public records.
