One of Dupont’s Six Sisters finds a buyer

Barry Karas and Bruce Green have purchased one of Dupont Circle’s famed Six Sisters for $1.05 million.

The stately row homes on 16th Street NW got their name because of their Victorian-inspired architecture. There originally were 12 sisters until half of them were razed to build the church next door.

After years of living in Los Angeles, Karas, 67, moved to the District nearly a year ago and rented a place across the street from his new home. The former actor and bundler for the Obama campaign fell in love with the city’s architecture.

“I was open for anything, but I always had a romantic sense that I would live in a townhouse,” Karas said. “I love the architecture in D.C. I love all the townhouses. I want to do a book on the rooftops of D.C. I find them magical. They really are very, very special.”

The three-bedroom, two-bath, 2,760-square-foot row house has two fireplaces, two decks and parking for two cars. Stanton Schnepp and Michael Marriott of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the seller. Brian Smith of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Stanton Schnepp represented the buyer. He represented the seller.
