DC's priciest home for sale has found a buyer.
The 12,200 square-foot former ambassadorial residence for the Swedish government at 3900 Nebraska Avenue NW (map) went under contract on Thursday; it hit the market just about a month ago for $19.5 million. Listing agent Cara Pearlman of Compass tells UrbanTurf that the listing received 12 offers and that there is a study period as part of the winning contract that will wrap up in a few weeks.
The seven-bedroom home sits on seven acres and is in need of renovations, but features a commercial grade kitchen, formal library and ballroom as well as a greenhouse and lighted tennis court on the grounds.
The Wall Street Journal reported in October that the property was being sold because Sweden wants a modern residence in a more central DC location. Since 1950, the residence along Nebraska Avenue has been home to 12 Swedish ambassadors.
