Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are house-hunting in Washington, DC — but not as quickly as commerce secretary nominee Wilbur Ross, who already bought a $12 million mansion near the vice president’s residence.
Sources say Ivanka and her husband are looking in Ross’ neighborhood as well as Georgetown, and might be seeing the same houses Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, is eyeing. Luxury Listings NY reported Wednesday that Ivanka had put her Trump Park Avenue apartment on the market for $4.1 million.
The French-château-style manse that Ross and his wife, Hilary Geary, bought sits on an acre across the street from Penny Pritzker, the current commerce secretary. So if Wilbur needs to borrow a cup of sugar, Pritzker can also give him the scoop on the dealings at his new office.
The house’s seller, DC philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, handed over “his and her” sets of keys to Ross and Geary last weekend at David and Julia Koch’s holiday party at the Mark hotel.
