What a Nice House Costs in the Nation’s Capital

From a Washingtonian magazine story by Marisa M. Kashino headlined “These DC Celebrities Bought and Sold Houses in 2020”:

Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon (and the richest person in the world), bought in Kalorama for $5,000,000

In January, the billionaire scooped up the brick mansion across the street from the former Textile Museum that he’s spent years transforming into his lavish DC compound (nicknamed the Amazon Embassy). This humbler home has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a wine cellar, a roof deck—and a direct line of sight to the old Textile Museum, which we’d wager was a big reason Bezos wanted it.

Scott Van Pelt, ESPN sportscaster, bought in Bethesda for $4,250,000.

The ESPN star snapped up this 11,500-square-foot Colonial-style mansion near Congressional Country Club (with a pool and separate pool house, naturally) in April.

Tucker Carlson, Fox News host, sold in Kent for $3,950,000.

Carlson’s 9,000-square-foot mansion (complete with a pool, home gym, and outdoor sauna) attracted anti-racist protesters in 2018. Carlson unloaded it in July and bought a $3 million spread on a tiny Florida island.

Jamie Weinstein, National Review podcaster, and Michelle Fields, former Breitbart reporter, bought in Massachusetts Avenue Heights for $2,550,000.

The right-wing-media power couple bought a five-bedroom, six-bathroom Colonial in June.

Michele Norris, former cohost of All Things Considered and director of the Race Card Project, and husband Broderick Johnson, a lawyer at Covington & Burling and former Obama White House official, sold in Chevy Chase DC for $1,395,000.

The couple’s 4,200-square-foot Colonial, on a corner lot near Rock Creek Park, sold in February.
