Abstract: Colin Powell was not only a four-star general who served for decades in the Army, but also a trailblazer who served in three of the highest positions in the U.S. government.

Powell served as the first black national security adviser under Ronald Reagan, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under George H.W. Bush, and secretary of state under George W. Bush.


Powell died in October 2021 at the age of 84.


And now, his former home in McLean, Virginia, which is just 10 miles from the nation's capital, has changed hands.


The home was listed on Oct. 26 for $3.125 million and sold the following day. Sale price of $2.8 million


The six-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom mansion is part of the luxury enclave known as Ballantrae Farms.


The stately brick home sits on a one-acre lot.


Beyond the circular driveway, a majestic porch graces the double front doors.


An impressive foyer connects to a living room with fireplace, a paneled library with wet bar, and a family room with a second fireplace.


A dining room, a kitchen with an island, a laundry area, two powder rooms, and a sunroom are also part of this home.


All bedrooms are upstairs, along with four renovated bathrooms.


The master bedroom has its own sitting area and a fireplace.


A hot tub and sauna complete the lower level.


The yard is beautifully landscaped and there is a pool and a three car garage.


The home is located just minutes from downtown McLean and the George Washington Memorial Parkway.


Powell, a Vietnam War veteran who was awarded two Presidential Medals of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal, is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.


Powell's family sold the Washington-area home to a private buyer, according to news reports.
