Former home of vice president goes to the auction block
The five-bedroom home once owned by former Vice President Dan Quayle and his wife Marilyn will be auctioned on Sept. 16. The event is one of several held in Virginia recently by various firms to auction off high-dollar and historic properties.
During President George H.W. Bush’s term, the Quayle family lived at 1013 Union Church Road, a 4,500-square-house located on a secluded 1.8-acre corner lot.
After Quayle purchased the house, he added a great room with glass walls and an in-ground pool.
The residence was recently listed at $1.5 million. It will be available for public bidding at a live event on the property with an opening bid of $850,000.
The home sits just over a mile off Route 7, 2.5 miles from Wolf Trap, 15 minutes from I-495 at Tysons Corner and 30 minutes from the U.S Capitol.
Interested buyers and spectators can tour the home during open houses on Saturday, Aug. 29, and Saturday, Sept. 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. To participate in the auction, buyers must bring funds for a deposit of 10 percent of the purchase price.
