New, 1 comment

Two kitchens, an outdoor pool, and a library are included

In Massachusetts Avenue Heights, this roughly 12,000-square-foot mansion just landed on the market with enough space for formal entertaining, two kitchens, and a brand new celeb in the District.

The current owner of this home is the former acting Prime Minister of Pakistan and the former senior official at the World Bank, Mooen A. Qureshi. The neighborhood that this listing is located on is also home to several famed multimillionaires. The late Herbert Haft once lived next door to this listing, and Vernon Jordan Jr., a leading figure in the Civil Rights Movement and close advisor to President Bill Clinton, lives on the same block.

In 2011, this residence gained some notoriety for its $12 million ask, making it the second-highest residential listing price in prior Washington history, according to Washington Business Journal. Two years earlier, it was priced at $18.5 million, which was $16 million higher than what the owners at the time bought it for in 2000.

Until 2001, the property was actually two residences and was later converted into one main one, totaling 11 bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms. On the Coldwell Banker listing, it states that the number of bedrooms and bathrooms has since changed to seven bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and three-and-a-half half bathrooms.
