Will a Foreign Country Spend $26 Million for 15 Dupont Circle?: Figure 1

Recently, we wondered who would be able to buy 15 Dupont Circle, the opulent, four-story, 16-bedroom residence on the circle that entered the market for $26 million, making it the most expensive home for sale in the city.

It is no secret that DC is not a city where the well-heeled drop over $20 million on a home. So, will a foreign government pick up the property? A family from abroad? An organization? We were interested in knowing what UrbanTurf readers thought, so we set up a poll. Below are the results:

Very few readers believe that a local individual or a U.S. organization will plunk down $26 million for the property. The foreign options — either a rich individual buyer or a government/other entity — received the overwhelming majority of the votes. Surprisingly, just about 4% of voters see it as UrbanTurf’s next headquarters.

The property was previously being used as The Washington Club, and has 16 bedrooms, parking for 10 cars and an auditorium, among other features.
