Real Estate: WaPo CEO Buys Home in Georgetown

Washington Post publisher and CEO Will Lewis and his wife Rebecca have bought a home in Georgetown. According to Axios, the couple spent over $7 million on a six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home in Georgetown.

The London-born media exec’s time at the Post (he took over January 2 of this year as publisher and chief executive) has not been without drama, the most recent being a new report from The New York Times that claims Lewis used unethical and fraudulent methods to get information for articles when he worked at the Sunday Times in the early 2000s (read more on this here).

The buzz surrounding Lewis has been constant—executive editor Sally Buzbee resigned amidst reports claiming Lewis tried to conceal stories about his links to a phone hacking scandal during the time he worked at British tabloid publications.

The home sold on May 23 for $7.2 million. The four-story home was built in 1900 and remodeled in 2005. There are also three covered garage spaces, a coveted feature, especially in Georgetown. The home is a traditional, Colonial Williamsburg style house with a wood burning fireplace and a landscaped yard.

There are lots of spacious storage spots and closets, and a lower-level rec room and media area too. The eat-in kitchen is roomy yet cozy, with stainless steel appliances. The total interior living area is 5,254 square feet.

Welcome to Georgetown!
