Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder is selling his home. The 15-acre property, which faces the Potomac River northwest of Washington, D.C., is going for $49 million.

The property is being listed by TTR Sotheby’s International, by agents Heather Corey and Michael Rankin. It was last sold in 2001 for $8,640,000, according to online property records. Yearly property taxes are $192,631, according to information provided by Sotheby’s.

But that’s not why you’re here. You’re here to see photos of the inside and learn more about the house.

The property once belonged to Hussein bin Talal, the former king of Jordan, and his wife, Queen Noor Al-Hussein. King Hussein died in 1999.

After the property was acquired, Snyder bought six adjacent parcels of land, according to Sotheby’s. The home has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and four half bathrooms, and comes in at 30,000 square feet.

The mansion itself sits on a slope about a half-mile back from the road and behind a gated entry. The entrance features a 24-foot limestone fireplace.

The main level of the home includes the “formal and public entertaining space,” according to Sotheby’s, along with a dining room, library, breakfast solarium, gym, spa lounge, office and a commercial grade kitchen. The second floor of the mansion has four private bedroom suites.

And the third floor, according to Sotheby’s, is dedicated to the primary suite, which includes floor-to-ceiling windows and a private terrace overlooking the Potomac River and an office with a marble fireplace and built-in bookshelves.

Also inside, on the lower level: a mahogany-paneled club room, a wine cellar and a home theater that was installed in 2017.

That’s not to mention the outdoor pool, the guest house, a gate house and a staff house.

In 2004, Snyder got permission from the National Park Service to cut down more than 100 mature trees on federally protected land just off the property. There was a whistleblower, alleged retaliation and eventually, a settlement.
