In a town built on politics, a home with a political history always draws attention. The former Congressman from Georgia, William Stuckey, and his wife Ethelynn listed their Spring Valley stone manor for a cool $6.25M last summer but it re-entered the listings yesterday for $5.8M. Stuckey (of the eponymous nut and candy empire) and his wife have been the lords of this manor for 45 years after buying the regal property from John T. Connor, the Commerce Secretary under President Johnson. While the exterior may evoke conquests on horseback, the interior was revamped back in 2006. With plenty of grounds and plenty of the space, the home is perfect for living and entertaining. The Stuckeys have been known to have more than 100 people at a time for Christmas parties. And for those with wild imaginations, the home's turret would be the perfect setting for epic Medieval battles. Last summer when the house first went on the market the real estate wonks at WSJ dissected the listing on their webshow. Click through for the discussion.
