1901 24th Street NW
Kalorama has become the epicenter for political real estate in DC in recent months.
UrbanTurf recently learned that former Obama advisor Steve Rattner has listed his five-bedroom Kalorama home for $7.9 million. Rattner was dubbed the Car Czar in 2009 after being tapped by President Obama to lead the effort to revitalize and restructure the automobile industry. He and wife Maureen White’s ownership of the home ran parallel with Obama’s two-term presidency; they purchased the 6,900 square-foot mansion on 24th Street NW in May 2009 and are selling it eight years later.
The home, listed with Patrick Chauvin of Compass, was renovated by New York-based architecture firm Ferguson & Shamamian and features a number of grand rooms and commercial-grade appliances meant for large-scale entertaining. Chauvin declined to comment to UrbanTurf.
The new listing represents the latest in a series of political comings and goings in Kalorama over the last year. In May, it was revealed that the Obama family would rent a home in the neighborhood starting in late-January. And earlier this month, Washingtonian reported that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner would live in a home on Tracy Place during Donald Trump’s presidency.
