In April 2017, it was revealed that the Massachusetts Avenue Heights home once owned by former acting Prime Minister of Pakistan and former senior official at the World Bank Mooen A. Qureshi was sold to an anonymous buyer for $7,785,000. Only recently was the name of the buyer revealed by Washington Business Journal. This name is Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump.
According to the Washington Business Journal, Conway purchased the home under the name Antoinette Associates LLC, which is a reference to Conway’s maternal grandmother, whose name was Antoinette.
In 2011, the owner of this listing attempted to break records by placing it on the market for $12 million, making it the second highest residential listing price in prior Washington history. 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. It later returned to the market in May 2016 for $8 million.
At one point, the residence was two properties. In 2001, the property was converted into one with eight bedrooms and 13 bathrooms across approximately 15,000 square feet of space and over an acre of land. Other notable features inside include a library, two kitchens, an elevator, and a pool cabana suite.
