3102 18th Street NW
For the past few years, UrbanTurf has been following the story of a Mount Pleasant home that has been on and off the market since 2008, with asking prices fluctuating between $850,000 and $1.05 million.
The five-bedroom, 2,663-square-foot rowhouse has an intriguing past. Located at 3102 18th Street NW, it served as the location of secretive, swanky parties thrown by Carlos Allen, an amateur rapper and one-time mayoral candidate in DC. The parties were hosted by a party outfit dubbed the Hush Galleria Social Club, and brought a club-like vibe to the quiet neighborhood.
Allen also made headlines in 2009, when he allegedly joined the Salahis at a White House state dinner — uninvited.
The owner has been eager to sell for awhile; the home was first listed in April 2008. It was on and off the market for the next three years with no luck finding a buyer, and was delisted in February 2011.
Now that Mount Pleasant’s housing market is heating up, perhaps the owner thought it was a good time to try their luck again. After two years off the market, the home was listed on July 12th for $969,000, found a buyer six days later and closed for $1.015 million earlier this month. No word on if the new owner will host secret parties or crash presidential ones.
