Buyers have a second chance to buy one of Arlington’s most infamous homes, known as Pershing Manor. ARLnow reported that the property, located at 3120 N. Pershing Drive, initially sold at auction in December 2016 for $2.2 million, but the deed was never transferred.

The mansion is now being auctioned off online between March 3 through 10. While Arlington County assessed the property for $4 million, the opening bid is $750,000.

Some of the reasons why the roughly 13,700-square-foot is assessed so high is because of its luxurious features, including its theater room, indoor heated pool and stone waterfall, and potential for being used as a bed and breakfast.

The property has been criticized by locals for its ostentatiousness. In 2005, The Washington Post reported that neighbors described the then-planned mansion as "absurd."

The previous owner of the home was Yogi Dumera, the restaurateur behind Delhi Dhaba and Arlington Rooftop Bar and Grill. The original asking price for the listing in June 2014 was $3,995,900. The price was later chopped to $1,999,999 in September 2016.
