Kimsey, who passed away in March 2016, built the 25,000 square-foot, six-bedroom home in 1999. Interesting features include four kitchens (at least one used for entertaining), a guest garage that can fit thirty cars, a wine room that doubles as a humidor and a massage room off the master suite.
Kimsey's estate isn't the only AOL home making luxury real estate headlines in the region. AOL co-founder Steve Case listed his home, dubbed Merrywood, last year for $49.5 million. The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that the Northern Virginia estate has found a buyer.
