The 3,800-square foot colonial formerly owned by Robyn and Juan Dixon — the divorced couple that acts like anything but on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” — just hit the open market after being foreclosed on in 2015.
Juan, a former Washington Wizards player and current coach at his alma mater the University of Maryland, and Robyn, a publicist, bought the three-bedroom Silver Spring home in 2002 for $725,000. Nearly 14 years later their dream house, located in the upscale Hampshire Green golf course community just outside the Beltway, is now on the market for $715,000.
“It’s priced to sell,” said our source in the local real estate community. In the halcyon days of the housing market homes in the area — big, estate-style affairs made for entertaining and sitting on leafy one-acre lots — could sell in the million-dollar range. These days not so much.
The Dixons’ financial trouble — they both filed for bankruptcy in 2013 — has been a central plot point on “Housewives,” charting the couple’s joint climb out of bankruptcy. Despite divorcing in 2012, the former high school sweethearts still live under the same roof and sleep in the same bed.
In a recent interview with OK Magazine, Robyn said she was “bank on track” but not yet fully recovered.
“It’s not perfect. It’s not where I want it,” she said. “We are still dealing with repercussions from everything that’s happened to us.”
