Paula Broadwell holds a drink in the kitchen of her brother's house in Washington, Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012. Broadwell is CIA Director David Petraeus' biographer, with whom he had an affair that led to his abrupt resignation last Friday. It was Broadwell's threatening emails to Jill Kelley, a Florida woman who is a Petraeus family friend, that led to the FBI's discovery of communications between Broadwell and Petraeus indicating they were having an affair.

What you might not know: the house itself is gorgeous.

Here's a Zillow.com listing showing it last sold for $2 million in June, 2010. It has seven bedrooms and 5.5 baths, and sits on a 12,400 square foot lot in D.C.'s Mount Pleasant neighborhood.

Check out the photos -- you won't see Broadwell drinking wine in them, but one does feature an awfully cute little dog (another features a slightly less adorable scarecrow):

The house is not only beautiful. It's also historically significant, from before Broadwell took refuge there: As DCist noted, it was previously owned by Mount Pleasant's first black family, the Deanes, whose purchase of the house violated a restrictive covenant. Broadwell's brother now owns the house.

And now back to the media stakeout, as well as some other notable, delicious and discreet spots around Mount Pleasant:
