Peter Laviolette’s Ballston Home Is On The Market
Ever wanted to live in the same home as one of the winningest coaches in NHL history? Now is your chance.
The Ballston home of former Washington Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette hit the market on Thursday. The 7-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom residence comes in at 5,267 square feet and commands an asking price of $2.695 million.
Located at 608 N Vermont Street, the home is roughly a five minute walk to the MedStar Capitals Iceplex and a 7-mile drive to Capital One Arena in Chinatown.
The home, built in 2018, was “almost complete” when Laviolette and his wife, Kristen, moved in back in 2020, realtor Danielle Johnson told ARLnow’s Jo DeVoe. But the couple opted for a handful of improvements, such as the addition of an electric security gate, an indoor/outdoor security system and an extension to the driveway, Johnson said.
“So even though the house was unbelievable when they bought it, they put a lot of their own money into it with upgrades,” Johnson said. “The Laviolettes left before they were really ready or hoping to, but that’s hockey.”
Laviolette guided the Capitals to the playoffs in his first two seasons after being hired in 2020, but after the team missed the playoffs for the first time since 2014, Laviolette and the team mutually partied ways last month.
A public open house will be held on Saturday from 1-3 p.m. By 2:30 on Thursday afternoon, the property’s Redfin listing had been viewed nearly 2,300 times.
