Beaux-Arts Mansion With Mysterious Backstory Re-Enters MLS

New, 1 comment


This Embassy Row mansion designed by Clarke Waggaman and George Ray may or may not have been an embassy at one point (but it was definitely a House of the Day over on Curbed National). There's this brief Wikipedia entry that suggests it used to be the Embassy of Austria. Then there's a Washington Life article that says it was the residence for the Ambassador of Cyprus. But whatever it used to be it is now a private home that is back on the market for slightly less than before. The five bed, nine bath was built in 1919 but includes a commercial-grade elevator that has direct access from the master bedroom. All four levels of the home have entertaining spaces so it is the perfect place for one big Embassy Row block party. Last year its asking price was $5M, but now it is back on the market for $4,795,000.
