While some members of Congress are content to shack up in group homes or live in basements, Sen. Claire McCaskill apparently has a higher standard of living.

The Missouri Democrat’s two-bedroom condo unit at 400 Massachusetts Ave., NW just went on the market for $749,750, and judging from the property listing, it’s a pretty sweet place. She and her husband, Joseph Shepard, bought the place in 2007 for $699,000. In the photos, it’s showhouse-perfect, done in tasteful modern monochromes, with few personal touches (hey, nice wine bar!).

McCaskill told local real estate blog DC Urban Turf last month that her condo is something of a party pad: “Our living space is bright and open, and feels intimate for a few but has the capacity to seat many for parties,” she says.

McCaskill, who was just re-elected last year, will have to find new digs for herself — and those soirees.
