Price Cutter: The Deep Throat Edition: Figure 1
Webster House

The price to own a piece of history just got a little cheaper.

At the end of April, UrbanTurf reported that the studio that Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward lived in as he was investigating the Watergate scandal had hit the market for $215,000. The price on the Dupont Circle unit recently dropped to $200,000.

Fans of All the President’s Men and Watergate fanatics will remember that when Deep Throat (Mark Felt) wanted to meet with Woodward about the Watergate scandal, he would circle page 20 in Woodward’s New York Times and then draw hands of a clock in the lower part of the page to signal what time they should meet in a Rosslyn parking garage. If Woodward wanted to meet with Felt, he would put a flag in a flower pot on the balcony of his apartment, the 500 square-foot unit that is now on the market.

The Webster House studio is not in quite as good a shape as when Woodward lived there (it is now a shell in need of work), which may explain the price reduction. However, if the price gets much lower, UrbanTurf just may have to buy it and start looking for some real estate scandals to investigate.
