Surreal estate: Alexander Ovechkin buys McLean mansion

Buyer: Alexander Ovechkin

Price: $4.275 million

Details: The highest-paid man in the NHL has finally bought himself a real mansion. Since 2005, Ovechkin has lived in the brick four-bedroom near Ballston — with his parents and brother as frequent housemates — that he bought for $1.6 million. Unclear how much of the family will move with him to his new pad in McLean — a newly-constructed five-bedroom, 7.5-bath behemoth of 11,000 sq. ft., three times the size of his old place. Marbles floors, circular stairway, mahogany deck, cherry-panelled elevator. And yet you'd still expect Ovie (whose purchase was first reported by Washington Business Journal) to go for something grander: He’s set to make more than $9 million a year for the next decade with the Caps.
