The nine-bedroom mansion along Embassy Row that found a buyer last week won't have a new resident. 

The listing at 2221 30th Street NW (map) sold last week to the country of Ireland for $12.25 million. The 15,000 square-foot residence, listed for $16.5 million, will serve as the Irish ambassador's official residence, but that won't exactly be a new use; Ireland has already been renting the home since last August. 

The listing, which was custom built in 2008 and has a number of large scale rooms for entertaining, was sold by philanthropist Adrienne Arsht who is no stranger to high-priced homes in the District. Arsht purchased the first home of Chevy Chase for $10 million in 2020, and sold a waterfront estate in Miami for over $100 million in 2022
