As we quickly approach the 2015 election and are already preparing to choose a new president in the 2016 election, there are more eyes than ever on the communities surrounding our nation’s capital.
The areas of Virginia and Maryland are home to some of the most classic real estate in the entire country. And whether you are looking to live like POTUS or just a junior Senator from Virginia, you can definitely find a good fit here.
Let’s take a look at five great properties that will have you watching the debates in style this year!
105 Patriots Ridge - $499,000
This two-story traditional home is on the lower end of our presidential budget, but it still packs all of the elite features you are looking for into its 3,338 square feet. It was built in 2007 and contains 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on 0.36 acres in Isle of Wright, Virginia.
The first thing you will notice as you walk into this house is that the entryway staircase will absolutely take your breath away. Aside from that, the hardwood floors throughout, wainscoting in the dining room, and the kitchen countertops add a polished feel to the entire house.
Heading upstairs, the master bathroom is huge. It contains a large soaking tub and a ceramic tile shower with two different showerheads! There is also a walk-in closet and a second level deck!

5522 Warwick Place, $1,598,995
This home in Chevy Chase, Maryland offers a very unique opportunity that involves scrapping the existing policy and starting from scratch. The plan here is to take the existing home that was built in 1951 and completely remove it. Then build a brand new home in its place on this wonderful lot.
If you are looking for a brand new home that can be customized to your exact specifications but is still located in a neighborhood that is rich with history, this is the perfect situation.

So what do you do if you don’t work for the government but still want to feel presidential? Well, you could always buy a white colonial in Bethesda, Maryland that looks a lot like the White House.

With a great fireplace in the living room and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, this home is the perfect combination of old and new styles.
The same holds true when you head upstairs. The classic master bedroom has its own private balcony, and the modern master bathroom has been completely renovated.
Heading outside the house, you will also enjoy exploring all 1.99 acres, which include multiple paths through the woods, as well as a tennis court and in-ground swimming pool.
