According to Redfin, yesterday the former house of the former mayor—and current DC Councilmember—Marion Barry sold. This was where he and his then-wife Effi lived during his first three terms as mayor (before he served his jail sentence for drug possession etc.) The home was briefly a part of its own controversy over a discounted mortgage. We're pretty sure the backyard basketball hoop is the same one that Barry built for his son when he lived there. The four bed, three bath with 2,040 square feet was asking $469,000, but seems to have gone for $450,000.
