Doug Gansler Trades Up

Gansler bought this house in Bethesda…

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.

…and sold this one in Chevy Chase.

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.
