Four months after her death, the Washington, D.C. home of the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein is on the market.
Feinstein’s former home at 3300 Nebraska Ave NW in the Spring Valley neighborhood is being offered for $8.5 million, the Wall Street Journal reported. She and husband Richard Blum, who died a year before Feinstein, purchased the home in 2001 for $5.6 million.
The nearly one-acre property features multiple structures, including a main home built around the 1950s with three bedrooms, a private library, a two-story great room and a sunroom. The estate also includes a pool house, a structure with changing rooms and a carriage house with a top-floor apartment.
Washington Fine Properties’ Ben Roth holds the listing.
Feinstein’s home is coming on the market at what could be a good time. Thomas Anderson of WFP told the Journal that the luxury property market in the nation’s capital often adheres to the election cycle, with rising demand expected as the 2024 election unfolds in November. That could help explain why other properties, including Ireland’s ambassadorial residence, are also coming to market.
Additionally, a few prominent political figures recently sold their homes in the capital. This month, Donald Trump’s one-time Secretary of State Rex Tillerson agreed to sell his home in the Kalorama neighborhood for $6.5 million. Lobbyist Tony Podesta sold his home in the same neighborhood for $8.2 million.
Since Feinstein’s death, legal disputes have emerged regarding her real estate. One involved her home in Stinson Beach on the West Coast, which pitted Feinstein’s daughter against a business associate of her late husband, who had a share in a trust that owned the home transferred to him upon Blum’s death. In November, Katherine sought to dismiss a lawsuit regarding the home after it sold for $9.1 million.
