Former “Meet The Press” host David Gregory has put his Wesley Heights estate on the market for $2.475 million. The 1935 brick Colonial home in this wealthy residential enclave of DC is a 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom single-family home with 2 car garages. Gregory and his wife, attorney Beth Wilkinson, have recently listed their home. NBC’s “Meet The Press” is the longest-running program in United States history.
One of the first planned communities in the U.S., Wesley Heights is an elegant neighborhood in northwest DC, just south of Tenleytown. It is bordered by New Mexico Avenue on the east, Nebraska Avenue on the north, Battery-Kemble Park on the west, and Glover Parkway on the south. The main roadway passing through Wesley Heights is Foxhall Road. Its neighboring communities are Spring Valley and American University Park. W.C. and A.N. Miller developed Wesley Heights in the 1920’s. The neighborhood in the 1920’s featured a shuttle service to the Wisconsin Avenue streetcar and a community clubhouse.
Gregory and his wife bought the home for $2.45 million in 2005 from the former United States ambassador to Canada Peter Teeley and his wife Victoria Casey. It is located at 4540 Dexter Street, N.W. The home has been updated and expanded. The brick Colonial includes a living room with vaulted ceilings and French doors that lead to a private flagstone patio and rear garden. The backyard includes a children’s playhouse. The living room shares a two-sided gas fireplace with the dining room with Sycamore wood accent walls surrounding the gas fireplace. Famed designer Fabiola Martens designed the kitchen with quartz counters and Porcelanosa floors. The kitchen includes gourmet kitchen appliances. It has a sunroom with 3 walls of windows and 2 skylights that flood the 5,200 square foot home with natural light. The upstairs master suite features 16 windows, built-in bookcases, a sitting room and cathedral ceilings.
