Evermay Estate on the Market for $49 Million
Comments () | Published September 29, 2008
Although real estate agents love to throw around the phrase “one of a kind,” properties rarely live up to that description. Evermay, which hit the market this morning for $49 million, fits the bill.

The two-and-one-half story brick mansion sits on three-and-a-half acres in the heart of Georgetown. British architect Nicholas King, who helped Pierre L’Enfant design Washington, created the Federal style mansion in 1801. Last sold in 1923 to diplomat Lammot Belin, it’s now rented out for special events like wedding receptions and corporate parties.

If the estate goes for the asking price, it would shatter the record for the most expensive home sale in DC—in 2007, another Georgetown mansion, the Bowie-Sevier house, broke the previous record by $10 million when media entrepreneur Robert Albritton bought it for $24 million.  

Considering the economy, we expect this one to sit on the market for quite a while.
