Fessenden House, one of the most expensive homes to hit the market in DC in 2015, sold for $18 million at the end of December. The home was listed for $22 million in March and went under contract in September to an undisclosed international buyer.
Listed by Nancy Itteliag of Long and Foster Real Estate and its affiliate Christie’s, the palatial seven-bedroom home at 3107 Fessenden Street NW (map) was owned by Samuel Lehrman, whose family co-founded Giant supermarket. Lehrman acquired the three adjacent lots that the home sits on in the early 1990s and built the sprawling estate on the acre of purchased land.
The 20,000 square-foot home was modeled after 18th century English and Scottish architecture. In addition to grand rooms for entertaining, the home has a pool, a poolhouse, a wine cellar and tasting room, as well as private quarters for staff.
