Huntsman cuts price of Virginia mansion after Senate approves his ambassadorship

Now that’s his ambassadorship to Russia is official, Jon Huntsman is apparently eager to unload his Virginia mansion, reportedly slashing the price to $3.6 million.

The estate in McLean owned by the former Utah governor had been listed for $4.2 million when it hit the market last year, according to

The seven-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath abode covers more than 8,850 square feet. The listing promises “old world charm meets newest in design trends.”


“Each bedroom meets world-class standards including a huge master suite,” the listing states.

The property also has a bit of a political history — Huntsman, a 2012 GOP presidential candidate, reportedly bought the digs from late Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) for $3.1 million in 2014.

The Senate last week easily approved President Trump’s choice of Huntsman as the next ambassador for Moscow.
