Brookland’s “White House” Is For Sale

If you’re going to buy a house in the District, might as well really embrace the whole “DC” thing, huh? This white-columned saltbox-style house in Brookland really takes the prize for best interpretation of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave—without going overboard. (Looking for some thing even more similar to the White House? Like, say a replica that’s coated in marble? Then this McLean house is for you.)

The price for this little piece of Americana paradise is far above the median for that neighborhood, but the place really is gigantic, with fully appointed baths, and a sprawling yard. The hardwood floors appear to be in excellent shape, and central air has already been installed. (Poor Truman suffered through that reno in the real White House.)

Wanna take a look for yourself? There’s an open house this Sunday, May 22, from 1-4 p.m.
