It can take upward of $1 billion to run for president of the United States and make it to the White House. But why do that when you can spend $2.65 million on a replica of the executive mansion? If you've ever wanted to live in the White House, now's your chance - sort of.

A White House replica is on the market in McLean, but it will cost you. The 7-bedroom 9-bathroom 13,000 sq. ft. home is currently listed on Zillow for $2,650,000.

As reported by Fox 5, the home includes marble flooring, 11-foot ceilings, an Oval Office replica, a gourmet kitchen with a breakfast area, a formal dining room, a library and more all on 1.61 acres of land.

The home was built in 1995 by a Vietnam refugee as a way to pay homage to the United States.

Van Nguyen, a Vietnamese refugee who’d escaped the Vietnam war, had purchased the nearly 1.6-acre lot in 1986 for $160,000, property records show. He then built and completed the residence by 1995 as a way to honor his gratitude for America, New York Post reported.

By 2011, the home was ready to hit the market. The real estate agent representing the buyer even attempted to reach out to Donald Trump himself to see if he was interested in buying the property first since he was considering a 2012 presidential run at the time.

But Trump never responded.

The home was first listed for $4 million officially in 2012, but without any offers, it tried its luck on the rental market.

In 2018, it was unfortunately forced into bank foreclosure.

Overall, it took seven years to create the replica house: two years for historical architect Robert Burns to scale down the blueprints of the original White House, three years to build and an additional two years after the family moved in to finish the detailing work.

The Post has reached out to Pennye Green-Latimer of Long & Foster Bethesda Gateway, who holds the listing, for comment.
