Yes, Article III Groupie realizes that this "news" was reported last week, concerning a real estate transaction that took place last year. But A3G has been extremely busy, preparing for her upcoming move to Washington, D.C. (where she will be joining the appellate practice of a large law firm; she's had it up to here with "trial work," a.k.a. document review). So if she's a little behind the times, please -- cut her some slack!
Seller: The family of William Rehnquist
Details : The 16th chief justice of the United States and his wife, Natalie, bought their North Arlington home near Marymount University in 1983 for $207,500, according to public records. He continued living there after her death eight years later, and it was in this three-bedroom, three-bath brick townhouse that Rehnquist himself succumbed to thyroid cancer Sept. 3. His daughter, Janet , a Washington attorney, handled its sale shortly before Thanksgiving.
A3G can add one more detail (which she feels it raises no security issue to mention, since Chief Justice Rehnquist has passed away and his family has sold the house): the Rehnquist residence was located at 2329 N. Glebe Road, Arlington, Virginia.
Speaking of Supreme residences, Washingtonian Magazine -- perhaps inspired by UTR Cribs? -- ran an article in its December 2005 issue entitled "At Home with the Supremes." In this fascinating piece, the magazine offered photographs, descriptions, assessed values, and market values for the houses of all nine current Supreme Court justices (plus the possible next justice, Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr.).
Unfortunately, this mouthwatering article isn't available online. And you don't want to borrow A3G's copy, since the pages are stuck together (no, not with hair gel; that's dried-up drool). But if you can locate your own hard copy of the December 2005 Washingtonian, turn to page 92, for an article that gives new meaning to the term "real estate porn." Scrumptious!
