Dream of living the lavish life of a political power broker?
Claire and Frank Underwood's home could be yours. Jared Block of Alex Cooper
That dream is now within arm’s reach: The
Baltimore, Maryland house, best known as Frank and Claire Underwood’s home in the hit Netflix series “House of Cards,” is scheduled for public auction. The home includes sophisticated wood molding and trim. Jared Block of Alex Cooper From the moment you walk in, the home gives off a regal vibe. Jared Block of Alex Cooper
The brick Victorian is fully restored and features 12-foot ceilings, five fireplaces and a dining room with a butler’s pantry, according to the listing.

There’s also a rear patio with a grill and a detached two-car garage — perfect for drivers of visiting heads of state who need a spot to idle during important state dinners.
The kitchen opens up into a living area, creating a comfortable and spacious great room. Jared Block of Alex Cooper
The home’s exterior was featured prominently throughout “House of Cards” as the Underwood residence during the first four seasons of the show.

Avid fans of the show know, the Underwoods have since found a new clubhouse for their conspiring:
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. This is just one of the home's four bedrooms. Jared Block of Alex Cooper
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom house is scheduled for auction next month, with starting bids at $500,000 (around 20 percent more than the $400,000 annual salary of the real-life
President of the United States). The master bathroom includes lots of marble. Jared Block of Alex Cooper
It comes with a security system with cameras and a DVR — you know, in case you enlist someone to
throw a brick through your window. For a city home, there's lots of outdoor space. Jared Block of Alex Cooper
