Rare Foggy Bottom Listing

By: Mary Clare Glover

This Foggy Bottom house is on the market for $4.9 million.

For the first time in more than 65 years, The Rose Heard House, a 117-year-old manse next to George Washington University, is for sale. The brick Federal-style house is currently the headquarters of Action on Smoking and Health, an antismoking non-profit. But when the company's lease runs out next year, a new owner will move in. We'll let you know who buys it—and if it goes for the asking price of almost $5 million.
