Evermay Owners Sell Georgetown House At Slight Discount: Figure 1
3128 P Street NW

The Georgetown real estate portfolio of the couple that owns two of the city’s most expensive homes just got a little smaller.

Sachiko Kuno and Ryuji Ueno, the biotech tycoons who purchased Evermay and Halcyon House last year, recently sold the other home they own in DC’s toniest neighborhood. A six-bedroom Federal townhouse that the couple owned at 3128 P Street NW (map) was listed for $3.695 million on October 12. It sold on Monday for $3.25 million. The four-level home has a double living room with dual fireplaces, a huge master suite, an in-law suite with a second kitchen and a two-car garage with a driveway.

Over the past 18 months, Kuno and Ueno made headlines for purchasing the two most expensive homes in the city for more than 50 percent off their original list prices.

UrbanTurf broke news of the first purchase when they bought the Georgetown estate Evermay in July 2011 for $22 million, down from an original asking price of $49 million. In recent years, the home at 1623 28th Street NW (map) had been used for exclusive parties and fundraisers, and was rumored to be on Oprah’s short list when she was DC house hunting.

However, the couple was not done. A few months later, the husband and wife team snapped up Halcyon House, the new most expensive home on the market, for $11 million. The house, located at 3400-3410 Prospect Street NW (map), was originally listed a few years ago for $30 million, and the price subsequently dropped a few times.

It seems fitting that since they got two of DC’s most expensive homes for well below their asking prices that the buyer of this home should get a discount as well.

    The P Street property had great bones, but was a true fixer-upper. It was advertised in the listing as being sold "AS IS", so not surprising they didn't get full asking price. Given that they bought Evermay and Halcyon House at more than slight discounts, I think they'll be alright.
