Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has a contract to sell his multimillion-dollar home in Kalorama, less than a month after former Clinton Press Secretary Joe Lockhart sold his home in the same posh neighborhood for $3.1 million.
The seven-bedroom home on Kalorama Road NW, owned by a limited liability corporation controlled by Rumsfeld, went under contract last week after being listed for sale by Washington Fine Properties earlier this month for nearly $4.5 million. A WFP spokeswoman declined to discuss details of the contract or the identity of the buyer.
Kalorama LLC, the corporation listed as the owner, bought the home in February 2001 for $3.3 million, according to the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue. Rumsfeld served as President George W. Bush’s defense secretary from January 2001 to December 2006.
