DC Has A New Second Most Expensive Home For Sale: Figure 1

Earlier this summer, luxury real estate headlines were made when DC’s most expensive home, Evermay, sold for less than half of its original asking price of $49 million. It appears that the slashing of eight-figure price tags might be becoming a trend.

2933-2943 Benton Place NW (map) is back up for sale for $12 million, about half of what the home was asking when it hit the market for $21 million back in 2006. Still, at its reduced price, the ten-bedroom, 11-bath mansion is now the second most expensive residential property for sale within the city borders.

The property sits tucked away off Embassy Row near Rock Creek Park. Originally built in 1927, it was completely renovated in 2001. The most expensive home on the market in the city right now is Halcyon House, available for $15 million.

    This is a tough one to price, but I think 12 is fair to start. At first I thought it was even a little underpriced, but then I looked carefully at the posted photos and some of the finishes are not as high end as the should be. Someone buying the place who has that kind of money is going to spend a bit upgrading the "nice" details to spectacular details and perhaps more in keeping with the historic architecture. Personally for that amount I would want something fabulous in Georgetown or Dupont.

    Beautiful bones. You half to get past the ghastly window treatments and I'm definitely not a fan of the decor/furnishings. I would love to bring in some drama,
