Real Estate Week: The Most Expensive House

This week GM is out of town, so he’s taken the opportunity to run through some of the homes on the market in Georgetown and flag some that catch his eye.

Yesterday GM took a look at the tiniest home on the market. Today he looks at the most expensive (and probably largest): 3400 Prospect. When you’re in this territory, though, an address alone doesn’t suffice. You need a name for your house, and in this case the name is Halcyon House.

Halcyon House Is Slashing Prices

There’s a bumper crop of historic Georgetown mansions for sale right now. GM’s talked about Evermay before, but hasn’t discussed the other landmark property on the market: Halcyon House (once you’re a landmark property you get silly names like that). It went on the market around the same time as Evermay, but for $30 million to Evermay’s $49 million.

Well that difference just got even bigger. On March 26, the asking price of Halcyon House was cut all the way “down” to $19 million. That’s a 37% drop. 

It’s not clear how many potential buyers that will entice. Are there really that many people out there that won’t spend $30 million on a house, but would spend $19 million? Maybe there’s some wealthy magnate that got out when the time was right and knows a steal when he sees one.

The next question: will Evermay follow?
