After John Carlson signed an eight-year contract extension with the Washington Capitals, his wife Gina admitted that the couple had secretly purchased a new property in the DC-area just a few weeks prior.
The six-bedroom home, which they closed on in March, is close by to their current house in Chevy Chase, MD.
The Carlson’s new house is a three-story American Foursquare home that was built in 1916. According to public records, the house has six bedrooms, four full and two half bathrooms, and sits on .8 acres. The backyard features a full-sized tennis court. You can see more pictures of the property here.
This was the first time this property has been on the market in 46 years, after the current owner decided to sell and move into an assisted living facility.
The Carlson’s are currently renovating the house to create their dream home to raise their two boys, Lucca and Rudy.
Gina grew up in the Chevy Chase area and her family still lives close by. In an Instagram caption in June, Gina was emotional about staying in DC.
Home is where (a few months ago) we secretly hoped we’d be staying in dc & bought land to build the southern home & big front porch we’ve always dreamed of having together.
Carlson held his day with the Stanley Cup in nearby Bethesda. He also made a stop at a neighborhood barbecue in Chevy Chase, MD, en-route to the rest of the day’s celebrations.
