Former Republican Lobbyist Jack Abramoff must have liked Silver Spring as a place to live. Since moving to the area in the 1980's He has owned 4 houses in Silver Spring. Two in the Woodside Park Neighborhood and 2 in the Burnt Mills Hills Neighborhood.
During the mid 1980's the Abramoffs lived in a house on Woodside Parkway in Woodside Park. In 1994 they sold the house on Woodside Parkway and moved into this brick and slate Colonial house on Alton Parkway, a larger house on a larger lot in the same neighborhood of Woodside Park.
In 1998 Jack and his wife sold the house on Alton Parkway and in 1999 they moved into this luxury contemporary style house, built in 1989. They are still the owners of record of the Burnt Mills house today.
The house is is set back off the road in an awesome private wooded setting in Burnt Mills Hills on almost 3 Acres. You can just make out the top of the house from this picture. In the spring and summer you can't see the house at all from the road.
Jack Abramoff was sentenced to 5 years and 10 months after pleading guilty to fraud and other charges in March of 2006.
