One of DC's most intriguing properties has found a buyer.
In January, former Washington Wizard Dwight Howard listed the 10,000 square-foot unit that he owns at the Pierce School on Maryland Avenue NE. Earlier this week, the top-floor residence went under contract.
Shortly after signing a contract with the Wizards in 2018, Howard purchased the loft, but put it on the market for $2.475 million after signing with the Los Angeles Lakers last year.
Unit H at the top of the former Pierce School consists of a 5,600 square-foot main loft level and another 4,000 square foot floor above that. The living areas, bedrooms, restaurant-sized kitchen and office are all enormous former classrooms.
On the second level, there are four guest bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a 14-person movie theater (the seats came from the first class section of an old airplane) and an 800 square-foot roof deck.
Howard made a few changes to the unit, based on his occupation among other things. He converted one of the rooms on the top level into an area for after-game massages, and he replaced the seats in the theater with some that are more fitting for his long frame.
