When UrbanTurf wrote about the effect the election would have on the DC real estate market, local market-watcher Andrew Stauch speculated that the luxury home segment — listings priced above $2.5 million — could see increased activity from a Trump presidency.

Well, it appears he may be right.

Commerce secretary nominee Wilbur Ross is under contract on a $12 million estate in Massachusetts Avenue Heights, UrbanTurf has learned. The seven-bedroom Beaux Arts mansion sits on just over an acre of land and has the trappings that one might expect for a home priced in this territory.

In addition to a number of rooms meant for entertaining, there are manicured grounds and terraces that look out on Rock Creek Park, a 12-person theater as well as a library on the lower level, and the house is equipped with a catering kitchen and staff quarters. Listed by Washington Fine Properties, the home has been on the market for a little over a year.

Ross, a banker and investor whose net worth is approximately $2.5 billion, was tapped by president-elect Donald Trump in late November to be commerce secretary. Ross, at least briefly, won’t live too far from his predecessor: current Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker lives just down the block.
