In October 2016, this eight-bedroom, 11-and-a-half-bathroom mansion in Kent landed on the market for $20 million. At the time, it was the most expensive home for sale in Washington, D.C. That ranking hasn’t changed. Actually, it’s probably secured that position for the next few months and maybe remainder of the year as the price has been upped by an additional $2 million.
Listing agent Marc Fleisher of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty told UrbanTurf that the reason for the raise in price was because of the addition of interior and landscaping features as well as the ongoing construction of the residence.
This home was formerly owned by Peggy Cooper Cafritz, a saloniste, arts patron, and former president of the Board of Education. The listing is located on a 35,000-square-foot lot with a wine cellar, library, and media room. In the kitchen, there is an island with a built-in sink and stainless steel appliances. Throughout, there is recessed lighting and multiple fireplaces.
UrbanTurf further reported that in 2012 there were plans to subdivide the lot in order to construct several homes. For whatever unreported reason, those plans fell through.
