Facebook Co-founder Chris Hughes Purchases DC Home
Add another bold-faced name to those who own a home in DC's Kalorama neighborhood.
UrbanTurf recently learned that Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes and husband Sean Eldridge purchased a home in the Northwest DC neighborhood this spring for just under $8 million.

Marin Hagen of Coldwell Banker who represented Hughes and Eldridge in the transaction told UrbanTurf that the couple's primary home remains in New York, but they wanted a home in DC as they are often in town to see friends and for work commitments.
The renovated six-bedroom home maintains a number of aspects from when it was built in the early 20th century, but also has a large chef's kitchen with high-end appliances, an owner's suite with a fireplace, a large media room, a full-sized gym, and a rear garden and terrace with a fire pit, grill and fountain.
Hughes and Eldridge's home purchase adds to Kalorama's growing reputation as DC's home to the glitterati. In 2017, President Barack Obama rented then purchased a home in Kalorama, and that same year, Jeff Bezos purchased the former Textile Museum on S Street NW and set about on a mammoth renovation. During their short time in DC, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner also rented a home in the neighborhood between Connecticut Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue NW.
