Capitals’ John Carlson Buys $3.4 Million Home in Chevy Chase

The defenseman netted six bedrooms and seven baths.

Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson has bought a $3.365 million home in Chevy Chase. The 5,800-square-foot Colonial features six bedrooms, seven baths, a movie theater, and a heated pool that—unfortunately for Carlson—seems unlikely to ice over in the winter.

The 25-year-old hockey star signed a six-year, $23.8 million contract in 2012, keeping him in Washington through the 2017-18 season. Carlson has emerged as one of the Caps’ most reliable defenders, not missing a game in each of the last five seasons. He also competed with the 2014 US Olympic team in Sochi, Russia.

He and his wife, Gina Nucci, closed on the home in April, 35 days after it hit the market, property records show. The Dorset Avenue house was originally listed at $3.5 million.
