Federal CIO living in style with new designer home

How does a top White House official live? We know now about one of them: Steven VanRoekel, U.S. CIO, just bought a home for $6.9 million, designed by a prominent East Coast architect.

The Washington Post reports that the former Microsoft executive's six-bedroom home sits on 1.3 acres and has a pool, a separate outdoor dining room and several gardens. VanRoekel and his wife Carrie made the house purchase May 1. (To be clear, we're not suggesting VanRoekel, who had a lengthy career in Microsoft's upper ranks prior to his government service, bought the home on his government salary.)

Located close to Embassy Row and Rock Creek Park, the home was designed by architect John Russell Pope, whose most famous work in the early 1900s include the National Archives and Records Administration building, the Jefferson Memorial and the West Building of the National Gallery of Art.
