Our nation’s capital is a curious place.

Its landscape—political or otherwise—is unique and a world all its own. Monuments, grand plazas, and Presidential motorcades blend seamlessly with Colonial row houses, colorful political discourse and the gaggle of visitors from all over the world.

All those variables make Washington, D.C. the perfect home for David Gregory, political correspondent and former host of NBC’s “Meet The Press.” Though he’s no longer the show’s moderator, he’s decided to stick around in the District.

Earlier this year, he and his wife purchased a new home, and their previous longtime residence is up for sale. Now listed at $2.695 million and presented by Thompson Roby of Long & Foster, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom home has been on the market since May.

Built in 1935, the home is located in one of Washington’s most prestigious neighborhoods, not far from Georgetown.

Gregory and his family updated and added space the home to include a world-class kitchen with sleek contemporary cabinetry, chef-grade appliances and an expansive center island, as well as banquette seating and skylights that allow sunlight to pour inside.

The bathrooms have been renovated to include beautiful stone materials and lots of glass, creating spaces simultaneously low-maintenance and sublimely elegant.

Outside, there are spacious patios set amongst mature trees and lush landscaping that, in the spring, are alive with color. Azaleas, the true “Southern belle” of flora, set the home ablaze with vibrant pinks, purples and reds.

A classically designed Colonial home, this is a place that is tasteful and in no way ostentatious—it’s modern and efficient.

A fixture in Washington, D.C. for years, David Gregory was a correspondent for “The Today Show,” and in addition to his stint on “Meet The Press,” Gregory was NBC’s Chief White House Correspondent from 2001-2008.

He is married to former Fannie Mae executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary Beth Wilkinson; they have three children.
