3005 45th Street NW
DC had to wait longer than usual for a new uber high-priced DC home to hit the market, but that wait ended on Friday.
An eight-bedroom, 15,000 square-foot estate in Wesley Heights hit the market for $18 million, making it the second most expensive home to be publicly listed for sale in the District.
The stone home at 3005 45th Street NW (map) was built in 1927 on a half acre of land that features trappings including a 50-foot heated pool, a pool/guest house and even a putting green. The interior of the home is large enough that there are formal entertaining areas including a formal dining room and conservatory as well as more relaxed spaces like a large family room.
The eight bedrooms are peppered around the upper levels of the home, the largest of those being a master suite with an enormous dressing room. Throughout the home are five fireplaces, a catering kitchen, an exercise room, a wine cellar and a theatre set-up on the lower level. The house, which is listed with Chuck Holzwarth of Washington Fine Properties, also comes with two garages for up to three cars.
