Haymarket home makes it easier to get into White House

WASHINGTON – It’s becoming increasingly easy to move into the White House.

Yet another residence modeled after 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW was on the market in the D.C. area, this one for almost two-thirds of the original asking price. The 15,000-square-foot mansion in Haymarket, Va., was described on at least one real estate site as a “fixer-upper” with “rehab potential,” reports The Huffington Post.

The original asking price for the foreclosed home was $1,445,000. It went for $865,000.

This White House has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms — slightly fewer than the 16 beds, 35 baths of the original.

But, unfortunately, this knock-off isn’t unique. Other White House look-alikes exist in Charles County, Md. and McLean, Va..
