The estate of Barbara Suzanne Caldwell and George Kenneth Brobeck has sold their residence at 4921 Rockwood Parkway, NW in Spring Valley for $3.3 million. Mrs. Brobeck, who died last autumn, was raised in Washington, D.C., and attended the National Cathedral School and George Washington University and was a member of the Sulgrave and Chevy Chase clubs. Her husband, to whom she was married for 58 years, died in 2006. Their former home is located not far from where Meet the Press host Tim Russert lived with his wife, Maureen, until his untimely death in June. The stately six-bedroom, six bath Tudor-style dwelling was built in 1931 and features an impressive living room with a beamed ceiling, fireplace and leaded-glass windows. The formal dining room has a tray ceiling, hardwood floors, wall sconces and a stone alcove showcasing a fountain. French doors open to a screened porch beyond which lies a flagstone patio and stone walkway leading to the rear garden and a heated two-car garage. William F. X. Moody and Robert Hryniewicki of Washington Fine Properties listed the 4,800-square-foot, four-story abode for $3,695,000. Nancy Taylor Bubes of Washington Fine Properties represented buyer Charles D. Nottingham, who is chairman of the Surface Transportation Board.
