Chew declined to give us the buyer’s name because the transaction hasn’t been finalized. But it’s safe to say he or she was willing to plunk down close to the sticker price.
“You wouldn’t take a huge drop in price when something is new on the market. It’s got to be a fairly good price,” said Chew, adding quickly, “but that’s just speculation.” Kalorama homes typically go for $2 to $10 million, depending on their size. Rummy’s former 5,000-square-foot abode, with its seven bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, pool and a mini greenhouse, falls pretty squarely in the middle of the market in terms of price.
“It’s certainly not in the highest range by a long shot,” Chew said.
