This historic six-bedroom Cleveland Park home, built in 1899, sports seven fireplaces and two original Jefferson windows. For sale “as is” by the owners, the house is “well-preserved,” a description that applies to the cracks in the atrium walls as well as other old-school touches. The kitchen showcases shit-brown linoleum flooring and Formica countertops—no problem for private-chef-employing homebuyers. The fourth level is perfect for all your recreational activities, once you remove the Austin Powers– style blue shag carpeting and strip the peeling wallpaper. Preliminary 2006 taxable assessment: $1,232,800.—Constantine Caloudas
