Va. mansion resembling White House to be sold at auction

McLEAN, Va. (AP) — A northern Virginia mansion that resembles the White House is going up for auction.

The Federal-style mansion was built in 1989 and has a rounded portico similar to the one on the southern facade of the White House.

WTOP-FM (http://tinyurl.com/jd7wqes) reports that the 12,500-square-foot, six-bedroom home goes on auction next month.

Jeff Stein, a partner with real estate auction firm Tranzon Fox, says he expects opening bids in the $3 million range. He calls it the "White House on Georgetown Pike."

The home is not the only one in the neighborhood inspired by the White House. A five-minute drive away, there's an even more faithful imitation of the executive mansion, with replicas of the Oval Office, Truman Balcony and Lincoln Bedroom.
