This Georgetown mansion built by George Mason's nephew drops price, asks $7M

Its price has dropped from $11 million when it first landed on the market in 2014

Apparently, history isn't enough to help this Georgetown mansion sell. This home was constructed in c. 1798 by George Mason's nephew, John Thomson Mason with bricks imported from England. It landed on the market in June 2014 for a whopping $11 million. Since then, it has languished with multiple price chops dropping it down to the current $7.75 million.

The residence spans approximately 6,400 square feet with nine bedrooms and nine-and-a-half bathrooms. According to the listing, the home has a long history of hosting Senators and Presidents. Inside, there are multiple fireplaces, stainless steel appliances, and an elevator.

When this listing was featured on Curbed National in June 2014, a commenter said, "This house has no character. Every room is generic. The bathrooms are the same old thing from Restoration Hardware. The staging is banal." Do you feel the same? Let Curbed know in the comments.
