Former Airbnb party house in Dupont Circle drops price, asks $3.49M

Koi pond, British telephone booth, and more included

In February 2018, this former Airbnb party house was listed for sale for $3.9 million. It has now dropped in price to $3,499,999. When the Dupont Circle single-family home first landed on the market in August 2016, its price totaled $4.5 million before being split into two separate units, one asking $2.5 million and the other asking $2 million, only a few months later.

In May 2015, D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine had to shut this Airbnb party pad down and fine its owner $8,000. Known as the “Celebrity House Hunter Mansion,” this Dupont Circle residence was once a popular destination, booked for $1,200 per night with six bedrooms and five bathrooms. What ended up causing this rental to cost the owner so much in fines was that the host operated the rental without a proper business license. That’s not all. Police had been called to this Airbnb party house more than 100 times in a matter of one year.

Inside, there is an 18-foot-tall waterfall in the entry, a koi pond, and an elevator that looks like a British telephone booth. Other luxurious features include a heated saltwater pool on the rooftop and a climate-controlled, two-car garage. There are a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms inside.
