You Can Be Bob Woodward’s Next-Door Neighbor—for $4.9 Million

The historic property currently on the market has seven bedrooms.

Do you harbor fantasies of borrowing a cup of sugar from Watergate sleuth Bob Woodward? Do you have $5 million to spare? If so, here’s your chance. A mansion on Q Street in Georgetown, adjacent to the Woodward home, is on the market. It was built in 1868 by DC’s first “governor,” Henry Cooke, as part of a 19th-century complex known as Cooke’s Row. Cooke lived in the R Street mansion that was home to Katharine Graham until her death, and now belongs to Mark Ein.*

If the $4.995 million asking price for 3023 Q Street is just too high, its conjoined twin, 3021 Q, is also on the market, for $4.2 million.

Worth noting: 3023 (with seven bedrooms, five full baths, and a garage) has been on the market for a little while, and in that time, according to the Georgetown Metropolitan, the price has gone not down but UP—by about $245,000. The Realtor is Cathie Gill. According to that office, no offers have yet been received.
