The $9.5 million Massachusetts Avenue Heights home of Debra Lee, the former chief executive officer of Black Entertainment Television, has found a buyer.
Originally listed for $13.5 million in late 2016, the 11,000 square-foot home went under contract last week. The home was designed by Marshall Moya Design, a local architecture firm that helped design DC's Audi Field and the new Wizards practice facility.
The 10,900 square-foot home has a curved facade that makes it stand out among the more traditional homes of Massachusetts Avenue Heights. The centerpiece is a 20-foot tall great room, but the rest of the house also lives up to its size. The master suite, for example, has a wall of windows that looks out on Rock Creek Park, a fireplace, and an adjoining dressing room.
The home theater
There is a full theater and media room, a wine room, a sauna, a pool and an exercise room. In addition to five outdoor terraces, there is a nine-car garage. Lee has hosted a variety of charity events at the house as well as a $40,000 a plate fundraiser for President Obama.
Lee’s home, listed by Marilyn Charity of Washington Fine Properties, is the most expensive home to go under contract in DC this year. Charity declined comment to UrbanTurf on the sale.
