Living in the mansion of a well-known figure just got a little more affordable. This Kalorama single-family home has lowered its price to $5.3 million. Joseph Hirshhorn, the founder of the Hirshhorn Museum, once housed his massive collection of paintings and sculptures from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in this residence. Another previous owner was George Washington University President Stephen Trachtenberg.

When it first landed on the market in September 2016, it asked $6.25 million. It then lowered to $5.9 million in February 2017. With eight bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms, this listing was constructed in 1924 and 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. The square footage totals more than 8,000.
