Eleven bedroom houses are not a regular thing in DC, especially not rowhouses.

Apparently, the home had undergone a bit of a transformation from its five bedroom self since last on the market in 2002. With three full levels above grade and a basement, in total around 3000 square feet, there was a lot of room to play with.

Commenters to the original GDoN post noted that it could possibly be put into good use by a cult or perhaps a bordello.

In any case, this house is really big, and close to Metro, hence the final sale price, which suggests robust competition.

The listing agent for this transaction was Kendall Splawn with Compass (per disclosure above, the same brokerage as the writer). Maxwell Rabin, with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, represented the Purchaser.
