Your dream home has arrived! After more than 200 years of near continuous use, the federal government has shuttered its doors and placed the U.S. Capitol on the market for the first time! A stunning example of 19th-century neoclassical architecture, this extraordinary residence is in mint condition, as it's barely been used in recent years. With over 600 rooms, and 1.5 million square feet of space, there's plenty of room for entertaining, backyard grilling, and maybe even some compromise.
