In Virginia, White House counsel Fred Fielding and his wife, Maria, sold this five-bedroom, six-bath Colonial in Arlington’s Country Club Hills for $1.8 million. The house has embassy-size entertaining rooms. Before joining the Bush administration in January, Fielding was a senior partner at Wiley Rein (formerly Wiley Rein & Fielding).

In DC, conservative pundit and radio host Laura Ingraham sold a three-bedroom, four-bath Colonial rowhouse on 28th Street in Woodley Park for $1.3 million. Built in 1922, the renovated home has an in-law suite, two kitchens, and a skylit master bedroom. Before launching The Laura Ingraham Show in 2001—which is broadcast on 340 radio stations nationwide—Ingraham went to the University of Virginia School of Law, clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and worked as a white-collar criminal defense attorney for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.
