Kellyanne Conway, former campaign manager for now-U.S. President Donald Trump, may soon be neighbors with the woman she helped defeat.
A luxurious home in an exclusive Washington D.C. neighborhood was recently purchased, and rumors indicate the buyer could be Conway, according to the Washingtonian.
The Washingtonian cites only an unnamed real estate source, who was not involved with the sale, who believes Conway to be the buyer of the 8-bedroom, 10-full bath mansion. The former acting prime minister of Pakistan, Moeenuddin Ahmad Qureshi, previously owned the mansion. Qureshi died last year.
The home sits on a secluded street in a relatively private area, and has been sold multiple times in the past few years, once listed for nearly $20 million. The area is easily accessible for Secret Service operations, and it’s no surprise that many diplomats and Washington elites have chosen the neighborhood.
The community of Massachusetts Avenue Heights is sought after by politicians and diplomats for its maze of dead end streets and a dedicated police patrol. One real-estate broker who lives in the area described the neighborhood as quiet.
“There’s really no sense of community per se,” broker John Taylor told The New York Times in 2000.
One notable resident of the neighborhood: Hillary Clinton.
Hillary and husband Bill Clinton bought their home in the exclusive Massachusetts Avenue Heights neighborhood in 2000, in the waning months of Bill’s presidency and shortly after Hillary was victorious in a New York Senate race. The house lists seven and a half bathrooms and boasts 5,500 square feet, according to The Times.
As for Conway, she and her husband disclosed assets worth as much as $39.3 million, making the home within reach, according to the Washingtonian. The home is almost triple the square feet of the Clinton home at nearly 15,000.
The Washingtonian approached the seller of the home to reveal the buyer, but he declined to say due to confidentiality agreements.
Conway serves as counselor to the president, and has made several appearances on television on President Trump’s behalf. Some have speculated that Conway is no longer present in many of the meetings Trump has, and remains “cut out” of the White House loop, according to The Washington Post.
“She’s in none of the key meetings,” said MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. “She’s just saying things, just to get in front of the TV set and prove her relevance because behind the scenes … she’s not in these meetings.”
The mansion, valued at $8 million, went under contract April 2.
