Ex-Washington Commanders Billionaire Owner Daniel Snyder Donates Mega-Mansion to Charity

Potomac, Maryland, United States

Billionaire Daniel Snyder is making headlines after he and his wife, Tanya, have decided to pull their 30,000 square foot French-inspired château from the market and instead donate it to the American Cancer Society. Mansion Global reported the donation, revealing that Snyder had purchased part of the property in 2001 for $8.64 million and spent years assembling an estate close to 10 acres – all overlooking the Potomac River. Built in 2004 by Horizon Builders, the expansive residence was designed by architect John Ike with interiors by interior designer Geoffrey Bradfield. Interior features include five bedrooms, 13.5 bathrooms, a tow-story reception hall, chef’s kitchen, and home theatre. Snyder, former owner of the Washington Commanders, put the property on the market in early-February 2023 for $49 million, making it the most expensive home in the state at the time, before dropping to $34.9 million in August of that same year. Realtor shared a statement from the American Cancer Society, “The transformative gift comes in the form of real estate in Maryland currently listed for sale for $34.9 million. Proceeds from the gift will be unrestricted and used to further ACS’s mission.” Snyder purchased the Washington Commanders along with Jack Kent Cooke Stadium for $800 million in 1999 – the most expensive transaction in sporting history at the time. He sold the Washington Commanders in 2023 for $6.05 billion – the highest price ever for a sports team.
