For Sale: Bob McDonnell’s Wyndham home could be yours — for the right price
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — The Glen Allen home of disgraced former governor and first lady Bob and Maureen McDonnell is on the market. Their nearly 6,000-square-foot house at 5913 Leabrook Way went on the market on Wednesday and is listed at $944,000. It backs up to the sixth fairway of the Dominion Club golf course in Wyndham’s Cherry Hill neighborhood. Catherine Noonan of Long & Foster is the listing agent. Henrico County records show the McDonnells purchased the property in 2006 for $835,000. A recent county assessment valued the property at $813,800.
The two-level home was built in 1997 and has six bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms. It has two first-floor bedrooms, one of which has an attached bathroom with wheelchair accessibility. There are master bedrooms on both floors.
Noonan said the home has features put in by the original owner, who had a child with a disability. The home is designed with no steps at its entrance, a ramp to a rear deck, as well as other design adjustments like lower light switches and wider doors.
“This home would fit a variety of lifestyles,” she said. “If someone needed to have a lot of first-floor living, or had a parent that needed to have their private area on the first floor, or someone that just wanted to age in place and know they didn’t have to do steps.”
Noonan said she sold the house to the McDonnells in 2006 and has maintained an ongoing relationship.
