Alexander Haig's house on McLean's storied Gold Coast has entered the market now that both Haig and his wife Patricia are deceased. Three levels of Georgian style architecture overlook the Potomac—including a master bedroom that runs the length of the house—in this 5 bed, 9 bath home. The one-acre lot has a separate apartment above the three car garage, as well as more living quarters for staff in the main house where there is also a sauna, gym, two kitchens, and eight fireplaces. Not far away is the US residence of Saudi Arabia's Prince Bandar Bin Sultan as well as a home that previously belonged to Senator Edward Kennedy (that is in the crosshairs of a developer with a $45 million design in mind). This is one of the rare private homes that have a flag pole, now sporting the Stars and Stripes, natch.
