Details: In the market for a top-drawer embassy? A public space for your massive art collection? Or do you just need a few more bedrooms? After nearly 90 years as a museum, the former Kalorama home of late forestry mogul/textile collector George Hewitt Myers is ready to be whatever you want it to be. With the collection preparing for new digs at George Washington University next year, the century-old mansion — the main part of which was designed by John Russell Pope of Jefferson Memorial fame — has been listed with Coldwell Banker. Marble floors, rooms paneled in walnut, oak and cedar, a whopping 27,000 square feet of floor space and sweeping gardens on the nearly acre-size lot.
