The McLean home owned by former Vice President Dan Quayle and his wife, Marilyn, will be sold at auction, according to Virginia Business.
Quayle bought the 4,500-square-foot house located at 1013 Union Church Road for about $125,000 in 1977 after being elected to Congress, according to a 1988 story in the Washington Post(The article has some good tidbits on the Quayle’s neighborly qualities).
Quayle added a glass-walled great room and an in-ground pool, according to Virginia Business. It has an updated kitchen, perhaps space for increased potato storage.
The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom Colonial is situated on a 1.84-acre corner lot. It was recently listed at $1.45 million, but bidding will begin at $850,000 at the Sept. 16 auction.
