Next door to the French ambassador’s residence in Washington, D.C., a vacant plot of land owned by the French government has been listed for $5.6 million, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The three parcels, totaling more than half an acre within the Sheridan-Kalorama Historic District, have been owned––along with the ambassador’s estate––by France since 1936. The residence was designed by Parisian architect Viscount Jules Henri de Sibour and built in 1911.
According to a representative of the French embassy, cited by the L.A. Times, the property is being sold with the intent to create future opportunities for investment.
Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner very recently moved into the wealthy Kalorama neighborhood just down the street from the Obamas and Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos.
The Trump-Kushner family’s 1923-built, colonial-style home was sold for $5.5 million in December. It is unclear whether they have purchased the property or will be renting.
A stately nine-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bathroom mansion nearby is owned by Barack and Michelle Obama, who purchased it last year.
Bezos bought his 10-bedroom mansion last October with cash for $23 million, the Washington Post reported.
The listing at Kalorama Circle is held by Alex Vendetti of Coldwell Banker and the Morrell-Roth team of Compass.
