The information you posted about the Saudi ambassador's residence off Chain Bridge Road is also described in detail in a new espionage novel, Canvas Sunsets Never Fade, published earlier this year. The book begins with a break-in at the residence you show in the eyeball photos. It also describes the inside of the building, including the secret basement in the northwest side of the structure. I thought this might interest you.
Here is the Amazon link to the book: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/097479340X (author: A. C. Frieden)
The author s website also shows images of the Saudi Embassy and other interesting intelligence locations in D.C., Moscow, Rome, Paris and in Switzerland. It's worth a look.
