January 09, 2023

We've got something you should add to your 2023 vision board: This historic Massachusetts Avenue Heights manor that's for sale for $9,750,000. The home was once owned by former Tennessee senator Bill Frist, as well as the former US ambassador to Switzerland True Davis, Jr., and it's been featured in Bon Appetit and Home & Design. It's listed by Robert Hyrniewicki, Adam Rackliffe, Christopher Leary, and Micah Smith of HRL Partners at Washington Fine Properties. Built in 1927 and renovated in 2012, the home has six bedrooms, five baths, two powder rooms, and 10,350 square feet of space. Plus, it sits on three lots totaling almost an acre of land. Inside, you'll find nine-foot ceilings, custom millwork, an elevator, a library, a chef's kitchen, a game room, an exercise room, and wine storage. (Oh, and all the stone floors in the house are heated - vision board!) Outside, the property has a swimming pool, a pool house, a croquet court, and a two-car garage with space for an additional 10 cars.
