What does Madeleine Albright's house in Georgetown look like?
Before her death in 2022, the former U.S. Secretary of State regularly hosted significant figures from the political scene from all over the world in her Federal-style residence, which is now up for sale for $4 million.
Have you ever wondered what walls would say if they could talk? If the walls of this Washington property, which was long owned by the late former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, could indeed speak, they would surely have many interesting things to say.
Just think of all the dignitaries who visited this famous residence during her more than 50-year stay - from Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, to Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and George Shultz, to name just a few.
Now, almost two years after the politician died of cancer at 84, the 19th-century residence is on the market, as first reported by The Wall Street Journal. Located in the historic part of Georgetown in Washington - and as mentioned, Albright and her husband Joe bought it in 1968 for about $100,000 - this Federal-style house is offered for $4 million through the agency Michael Rankin and Logan MacEthan of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
Built in the early 1850s, the traditional red brick house has four bedrooms and five bathrooms spanning more than 470 square meters of living space with elegant wooden floors, plaster mouldings, and decorative carpentry. The entrance is secured through beautiful turquoise-coloured doors. There's also a spacious terrace with a fountain and garden.
Inside, the double-sided living room painted in a pale-yellow colour has two fireplaces, while the formal dining room leads to a modernly equipped kitchen. On the second floor, there is a library and the main bedroom with a newly renovated marble bathroom with underfloor heating. There's also a garden room, an office, and a basement. There is also a separate two-car garage with a bathroom and storage space.
