Real Estate: Bret Baier Home Listed for a Record $32 Million
By October 23, 2023 0 922•
Fox News’ Bret Baier and his wife Amy (who currently serves as chair of the Children’s National Hospital Foundation Board) have listed their home for a record $32 million dollars. If it ends up going for that price, it is set to become the most expensive residential sale in Washington, D.C., history.
The home is a sprawling 16,250-square-foot estate that sits majestically on one-and-a-half acres. There are five bedrooms, seven full baths and two half-baths. The home, finished just last year, includes a home gym, cinema, and spa, a golf simulator, 56-foot-long heated pool, a living room with a floor-to-ceiling wine display, and many more luxurious additions.
The home’s design was inspired by the Chateau du Grand-Lucé in France. You’ll notice interior designer Thomas Pheasant’s attention to detail, and the work of developer Michael Banks, architect David Jones, and landscape architect Richard Arentz.
Arentz wanted the landscaping to be just as important as the home, and it’s easy to see how his installations of mature plantings from around the U.S. give off a sense of privacy and calmness. Amongst the gardens, you’ll find a private chipping and putting green too.
The home is gated for privacy and has an indoor sports court for the Baiers’ athletic teenage sons.
The dining room can seat 14 guests, as the Baiers loved to entertain people on both sides of the political aisle. The couple have purchased a home for $37 million in Palm Beach, Florida, earlier this year. They’re currently looking to buy a more modest home in D.C.
The listing agent for the home is Daniel Heider of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. The property is located at 2400 Foxhall Rd. NW.
