Daniel Snyder, the former owner of the Washington Commanders owns a luxurious mansion designed to look like a French castle. The mansion is very fancy with a view of the Potomac River. Snyder is trying to sell his mansion and unexpectedly he has listed it at a lesser price as compared to its original price.
It’s quite intriguing that he suddenly reduced the price of his mansion. Let’s find out the reason behind the sudden reduction in the price of this castle like mansion.
Daniel Snyder’s Maryland estate now $14 million cheaper
Daniel Snyder’s mansion is a 30,000-square-foot property that was worth $49 million. It was one of the most expensive listings in Washington, D.C. But in an unexpected turn, the former Commander’s owner has reduced the price of it.
The château-inspired mansion is now $14.1 million cheaper. The current price of it is $34.9 million, now the second most expensive listing.
This piece of art was completed in 2004. It was built by architect John Ike and interior designer Geoffrey Bradfield and Horizon Builders. The house has a 24-foot limestone fireplace and a double-height living room that gives a river view. The balcony, dining room, and library also provide beautiful water views.
According to the listing the mansion has everything including a breakfast solarium, gym, spa, office, a club room, bar, wine cellar, and home theatre. It has five-bedroom suites and a two-bedroom guest house. The guest house is no less than luxurious with a spiral staircase, kitchen, six-car garage, and a manager’s house.
Moreover, this extraordinary mansion is surrounded by English gardens and beautiful lawns. Now that this extravagant property is $14 million cheaper it’s a great opportunity for anyone who wants to buy this property.
Snyder slapped with $60 million fine by NFL month earlier
Rumors are that Daniel Snyder‘s decision to reduce the listing price of his mansion has something to do with the $60 million fine he has to pay to the NFL.
A few months back it was reported that the former Commander’s owner was accused by a woman of sexual misconduct. His former employer also accused his team of improperly withholding approximately $11 million that had to be shared with the other teams in the NFL.
First Snyder denied all these allegations but after the investigation, it was proved that all these allegations were true. Therefore, the NFL fined Daniel Snyder $60 Million.
Maybe that is the reason why Snyder has reduced the listing price of his mansion because he is in dire need of money. Whatever the reason, the next buyer of the château-inspired residence will be very lucky to buy this beautiful property at such a cheaper price.
