  • I would not pay a penny over 6,994,999.99 for that dump!
    Beautiful finishes with a nice mix of classical and modern styles. But why all the carpet?

    • My guess based on the furniture and carpet is that the current owners are on the elderly side.

    • +1 on all the carpet. Not a fan at this price range. Plus, I prefer informal private grounds. Hard pass.

  • The plaid pink bathroom made me lol

  • Love the grounds, the kitchen and the fact that there are so many fireplaces. My only quibble is that the bathtub is in the tiny bathroom, which is an odd choice. But if I had a $7M budget for a house, I could probably afford to rip out one of the showers and put in the soaking tub of my dreams.

    it says there are 2 residences. where are the photos of the 2nd residence? i’m rather underwhelmed for $6.995, honestly. according to redfin it sold in 2005 for $3.25.

    • This took me a while to figure out — it looks like the large house on the left is 3512, and 3514 is the smaller house on the right that has a main floor mostly taken up by a garage.
      It’s a little confusing/misleading for them to refer to it as an “attached garage”… it’s attached if you’re in 3514, but not attached if you’re in 3512.
      And what is that little outbuilding at the back of the garden? The kid in me thinks it might make the best playhouse ever.

    • The second residence if for Mrs. Patmore, Daisey, Carson et al.

  • Nice, but that tile in the kitchen and one bath could induce a seizure!

    The house looks nice enough, but good grief is that the most boring decor I’ve seen in a while. The plaid bathroom was a surprise!

  • Now that’s some house porn!

  • I kinda love the plaid pink bathroom and this house in general. Such a classic and traditional look in contrast to all the modern/steel people load into homes these days.

    I want this SO MUCH.

  • A quick google determined that the owner is the Co-Global Head of the Investment Management Division and serves on the Management Committee at Goldman Sachs & Co. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1985 and became a partner in 1990. Tim is a Trustee of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and chairman of the Finance Committee. He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Museum of American History; a member of the Board of Directors of Georgetown University and chairman of the Committee on Medical Center Affairs; a member of the Board of Overseers of the Weill Cornell Medical College and Graduate School of Medical Sciences and chairman of the Business Finance Committee.

  • If I had that much to spend on a house I would get something nice.

  • Those airplane contrails in the backyard picture are a reminder that it can be pretty noisy living under the approach path for National Airport.

  • It’s funny that for all it’s character, the place has the same kind of boring tile in bathrooms as most flips (perhaps higher end, but the same effect) and like a lot of flips, they’ve turned attic space into awkward extra rooms.
