There have been strange occurrences of things like the bathroom window being raised, the toilet flushing and steam coming from the bathtub. There are also strange sounds that come from the basement. Whenever storage is put in the basement, in the morning it is ruined and ransacked. This was the house of the late relatives of the Gore family. The marble in the house always cracks, and then the cracks disappear the next day but return later. The butler has been seen walking down the steps and around the property.

-More information-
This mansion was built in 1930 by millionaire Samuel Martin. In 1936, Franklin D. Roosevelt rented Marwood for use as the summer White House. Later John F. Kennedy`s parents leased the Mansion and lived there until 1939. In 1942, H. Grady Gore bought Marwood. Today the Mansion now belongs to Chris Rogers who founded the telecommunications company that is now Nextel.

The zip code is 20854. The house was built in 1926 and I had the opportunity to tour the house prior to Mr Rogers renovation, you could feel the history. The strange thing for me was that when I was on the 3rd floor, where the servants rooms were, I found old black and white pictures of people by the pool and one of them looked like ME! I wish I had taken those pictures !!!!!!!!!!!

An Ethiopian Doctor named Dr Yonas Zegeye was the one who bought it before Rogers. Xegeye completely renovated it from scratch. The place was a disaster before Dr Zegeye an Ethiopian neurosurgeon completely modernized the mansion. He deserves total credit for bringing this mansion back. Not Rogers.

Dr Zegeye's "renovation" was appalling!

Marwood has recently (1/11) become the home to Washington Wizards & Washington Capitols owner, Ted Leonsis. Did the Rogers' sell due to it's "haunted" status?? Mr Leonsis sold a Palm Beach property and traded his Va home to the Rogers (along with cash I'm guessing) for Marwood. The deal is estimated at $20 million! And worth every penny I might add . Hopefully his interior decorating will be more in keeping with the "flavor" of the nearly 15,000 square foot mansion !   Boo!
