Georgetown Mansion Will Hit the Market for $16.8 Million

First there was Evermay. Then there was Halcyon House. Now another Georgetown residence will hit the market and become one of the most expensive homes on the market in the city.

A renovated and expanded version of the historic property known as the Williams-Addison House will soon be listed for $16.8 million, UrbanTurf has learned.

The property at 1645 31st Street NW (map) was significantly renovated and expanded over the past 18 months by Capital City Real Estate, architect Dale Overmyer and interior designer Kelley Proxmire. The 10,000 square-foot, six-bedroom home sits on a 31,982 square-foot lot, one of the largest private lots in Georgetown.

The finished product is “made for entertaining”, according to sources, with an expansive main floor and a lower level with a media room, wine cellar and a catering kitchen. The home’s master suite includes a private study and a fireplace.

For those that have been closely following the residential real estate beat in the city for the past several years, this is the home previously owned by former Washington Post executive Marc Teren. It was the subject of controversy in the neighborhood based initially on the fact that Teren wanted to build another house on the property, and then because it was an eyesore of start and stop renovations for several years.
