Washington, DC
$ 25,000 Beds 8 Baths 6.5 Virtual Tour

Recently restored and renovated former Ambassador's Home on Embassy Row. A home rich in both American & International history, placed on over a 1/2 acre of land - what a wonderful home to live in and entertain lavishly, especially upon the return of normal times. Originally built in 1934 by an American Ambassador to Germany & Great Britain, under two U.S. Presidents (Harding & Coolidge) after serving in Congress. Rarely available: an 8 Bedroom, 8 Bath (5 Full & 3 Half), 8 fireplace, multi-million dollar renovation on Embassy Row, located next to the former Embassy of Iran and the Embassy of South Africa; directly across the street from the Embassies of Brazil & Bolivia, and only two (2) blocks from the Embassy of Great Britain & the U.S. Naval Observatory. It's the perfect home to enjoy friends and family during this time, or easily entertain a 'reasonable' number of guests with plenty of room for safe, social distancing; and a couple hundred or so, once safer times return. Enjoy the gorgeous pool. Be sure to click the link to see the 3D Matterport Virtual Tour, a must for a home almost 17,000 sq. ft. The home is restored & it also has a highly efficient, Commercial Grade HVAC Chiller, over 90% of the lights are LED (inside & out), and well insulated. The kitchen has high end, custom made walnut veneer cabinets & natural quartz counters. The bathrooms have Carrara & white marble counters, with the Owner's Bathroom providing marble counters and flooring along with an incredible sauna. Pre-wired for Verizon & Comcast; ask about the local area network (LAN) set up throughout the house. All information deemed reliable, but not guaranteed.
