Billionaire Argentine businessman Carlos Bulgheroni has confirmed through his agent that he and his wife, Natalia, are the buyers of one of Georgetown’s most luxurious properties, a corner mansion at 3053 P Street. They paid $7 million for the nine-bedroom, seven-bath home, which comes with a garden, a pool, ample parking, and a garage. It initially went on the market with an asking price in the range of $12 million. The seller was Dr. William Haseltine, a founder and the former chairman of Human Genome Sciences of Rockville, Maryland.

Bulgheroni, who has homes also in Buenos Aires and Rome, is considered one of Argentina’s richest men. His family founded the Bridas Corporation, the largest privately owned oil and gas exploration company in Argentina. Bulgheroni works with his brother, Alejandro. Forbes puts their combined net worth at $5.5 billion.

In Washington Bulgheroni is a trustee of the Center for Strategic and International Studies and is a past co-chairman of the International Committee of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, on which he still serves. While the Bulgheronis come to Washington from time to time for business, they are moving here on a longer-term basis while one of their young children is treated at Children’s Hospital.

The sale of the house was handled by Mark McFadden of Washington Fine Properties.
