This expansive, graceful Tudor home located at 2728 32nd Street NW in Massachusetts Avenue Heights features roughly 8,350 square feet of living space, six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and seven fireplaces. The grounds boast a 42-by-20-foot swimming pool and cabana, two lawns and a pond, and a few terraces. The home is now priced at $6.2 million.

Originally built in the 1930s, it was once owned by Arthur S. Henning, a former D.C. bureau chief for the Chicago Daily Tribune who was involved in that paper’s decision to publish the infamous “Dewey Defeats Truman” front-page headline in 1948. It is near several embassies and ambassadors’ residences as well as Observatory Circle and the vice president’s house. A wine cellar, catering kitchen, stainless steel appliances, and beamed ceilings are in the home.

There are also two half-bathrooms, a two-car garage, and a long driveway. The home, which last sold in 2016 for $5,250,000, sits on a nearly half-acre lot. HRL Partners at Washington Fine Properties—comprising of Robert Hryniewicki, Adam T. Rackliffe, and Christopher R. Leary—is the listing team. Investor and publisher Frank H. Pearl also once owned the house.
