Evermay, the Georgetown residence that made headlines as the priciest home to sell in DC in 2011, may soon no longer be a residence at all.
Curbed DC is reporting that the new owners — pharmaceutical magnates Dr. Sachiko Kuno and Dr. Ryuji Ueno — have requested a zoning change to turn the property from a residence into the headquarters of a non-profit. If approved, employees would work from the grand mansion, which would also become a venue for events.

In May, Evermay found a buyer for about $22 million, substantially less than when it was originally listed for $49 million in October 2008. Dr. Kuno and Dr. Ueno also went under contract on Halcyon House, the second most expensive residential property in DC in 2011, in November.
