3134 Ellicott Street NW

DC’s highest-priced homes usually sit on the market for months and take several price reductions to attract a buyer. That was not the case with 3134 Ellicott Street NW.

The massive estate off Connecticut Avenue joined the ranks of the priciest homes for sale in the District in mid-March when it was listed by Washington Fine Properties for $10 million. The home went under contract yesterday.

Tucked away in Forest Hills (map), we noted that the six-bedroom home might bring to mind Michael Corleone’s Lake Tahoe house when we wrote about a few weeks ago.

After undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation in recent years, the home’s centerpiece is now a 34-foot-by-20-foot great room that leads out to a terrace and pond. In addition to a wine cellar, sauna, exercise room, and a very large pool, there is also a two-bedroom guesthouse and a three-car garage.

There are still contingencies as part of the sale that need to be met before the sales goes to closing, but if things go smoothly, it will be a very fast transaction given the sales price.

    Yesterday, 4-6 this was "sale pending" today it is "off market" at Zillow. Glad I looked at it yesterday. WOW for a price increase. 4 years ago it sold for 4.25 million now at 10 million with no upgrades. That's an INCREDIBLE return on your money.
