Joseph Hirshhorn, the founder of Washington, D.C.’s Hirshhorn Museum, once housed his massive collection of paintings and sculptures from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in this Kalorama single-family home. Another previous owner was George Washington University President Stephen Trachtenberg.

It first landed on the market with its over 8,000 square feet of space in September 2016. At the time, it asked $6.25 million. Since its recent price chop, it now is on the market for $5.9 million with eight bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms to spare.

Constructed in 1924, the listing still features original fireplace mantels as well as a scenic chinoiserie wallpaper, built-ins, and crown molding. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and an island with a built-in dishwasher and breakfast bar.
