Saudi Arabia is scooping up large swaths of land in Northern Virginia, just a stone's throw away from the nation's capital, according to local reports.

"The Saudi government now owns five adjacent properties on the grandiose corridor in McLean that is home to high-profile, pricey estates and bucolic views of the Potomac River, according to government assessment records," Washington Business Journal reported.

The Saudi government is said to have purchased a series of adjacent homes "occupying about a half-mile stretch" near Chain Bridge Road in Northern Virginia, according to the report.
