Weeks after winning his first statewide election, Maryland attorney general Doug Gansler and his wife, Laura Leedy Gansler, traded up. After collecting $1.2 million for a four-bedroom, four-bath Colonial in Chevy Chase’s Ridgewood Village neighborhood, the couple spent $1.3 million on a five-bedroom Colonial in Bethesda’s Bradley Hills Grove. The new house, near Burning Tree Country Club and Holton-Arms School, sits on a half acre and has a swimming pool, marble foyer, and two-car garage.
Before being elected to his new post in November, Gansler was Montgomery County’s chief prosecutor. Laura Gansler, a lawyer and writer, cowrote Class Action, a nonfiction book about a sexual-harassment case that was adapted into the film North Coutry with Charlize Theron.
