NYT Columnist David Brooks' Cleveland Park Home Finds a Buyer: Figure 1

David Brooks listed his Cleveland Park home for $4.495 million last week, and it took just 48 hours for a buyer to scoop it up.

Brooks, a New York Times columnist, PBS NewsHour regular, and a cultural and political commentator, purchased the house for $3.95 million in July 2012. A little more than a year later, rumors that he and wife Sarah were getting a divorce were reported in The Washington Post’s Reliable Source column. That report was later called into question by Gawker, who noted that Brooks’ Facebook profile still labeled him “Married.” It no longer does.

The couple moved into the Cleveland Park house from their longtime home in Bethesda, which sold for $1.6 million, in 2012.

The six-bedroom, 4.5-bath home is on Ordway Street off Wisconsin Avenue NW (map), and has been renovated to a luxurious standard. The master bedroom has a view of the National Cathedral, and the basement includes a wine cellar.

Listed last Thursday, it took all of two days before the home was under contract to an eager buyer.

Here are more details on the property:

  • Full Listing: 3600 Ordway Street NW (map)
  • List Price: $4.495 million
  • Bedrooms: 6
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Year Built: 1911
  • Listing Agent: Margot Wilson, Washington Fine Properties
