Many politicians have been housed in this Georgetown single-family home. Now, for those who are interested in listings with history, this over 200-year-old property is up for grabs for $2,795,000. With four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, this renovated home comes with five fireplaces, an updated kitchen, and a private courtyard.
While the listing indicates that the property once served as a chimney factory, The Washington Post reports that it may have also served as a saloon and a gathering place for holy rollers. At one point, this property was three houses, constructed between 1804 and 1808 and later combined in circa 1920.
Previous tenants and owners of this home include Morris R. Clark, who served as special assistant to the attorney general, Jean Delattre-Seguy, who was a patent attorney who headed the France Forever movement in WWII, and also John P. McCloy, who worked in the administrations of seven presidents, as reported by The Washington Post. Allegedly, plans for D-Day were also hashed out in the home’s wood-paneled library.
Other big names attached to this property include James P. Hendrick, who was deputy assistant secretary of the Treasury Department, and Senator Charles P. Percy, whose daughter heads WETA.
The listing agent is Russell Firestone of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
