Tom and Katie might be moving a little closer to his new business partner, the Washington Redskins' owner Dan Snyder. According to sources at the DC Examiner, "the pair is putting the final ink on a contract for a $22 million behemoth of a home in Upperville, Va." Here's more:
The property is listed through Armfield, Miller & Ripley Fine Properties in Middleburg. Its Web site reveals that the 1,100-acre Loudoun County property is “available for only the second time in 75 years” and “amenities include a variety of barns, ancillary residences, seven ponds, a training track, orchard and lovely formal gardens.”
The Web site indicates that it is “under contract.” Agent Anita Sisney would not comment directly on the sale, or on the identity of the buyer. When we asked if she could confirm the sale, she said, “The buyer would like to keep his privacy, and it’s not going to come from me.”
The tract of land, described by one source as the “biggest property ever” has quite a pedigree. It was originally owned by the family of famous Washington-based landscape painter and Civil War veteran Lucien Whiting Powell.
Will the pair relocate to the east coast as a married couple? In these pics Katie looks like she is in deep discussions with her mystery companion on a very important matter. Is this woman a wedding planner, perhaps? Lots and lots more pics of Katie, so read more
