Peggy Cooper Cafritz is a saloniste, arts patron, a former president of the Board of Education, and also the current owner of this two-story Dupont Circle penthouse. Now, her home is on the market for $5.5 million. Unfortunately, her massive art collection isn’t included with the sale, but homebuyers and onlookers can see some of her many artworks in the listing photos.
Along with walls of windows and a chrome-tastic kitchen, this listing also offers a private elevator, washer and dryer, and three parking spaces. The new homebuyer will also have access to amenities like a rooftop pool. There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms inside.
According to UrbanTurf, Cafritz purchased this 5,400-square-foot condo five years after a fire ravaged her home in Kent in August 2009. With the fire went much of her collection of contemporary African and African-American art and what The New York Times described as "one of this city’s more lively social hubs." See what replaced her home in this Curbed DC article.
The listing agent of the Dupont Circle penthouse is Hans Wydler of Wydler Brothers Real Estate.
