Seller: Anne Sinclair
Price: $3.3 million
Details: The gracious Federal-style townhouse in Georgetown where disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his now-estranged broadcaster wife lived for four years has finally sold after 20 months on the market — but for far less than the $5.2 million they originally asked, and far less than the $4 million they originally paid. Unclear why the historic property near Rock Creek Park (three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, two fireplaces) lingered so long on the market; some observers noted that the lovely swimming pool out back might not compensate for the lack of parking. Public records indicate the new owner is Deborah Winsor, widow of Bank of Georgetown founder Curtin Winsor, who appears to be doing some minor downsizing: Her landmark 200-year-old mansion on the far side of Wisconsin Avenue (previously owned by mid-century social titans David and Evangeline Bruce and newspaper heiress Clara Bingham) recently went on the market for almost $9 million and is said to be under contract.
