I don’t often do this, but when there’s a particularly noteworthy house on the market, I’ll try to bring it to your attention. Today’s one of those days.

R. Donahue Peebles, real estate mogul and almost-2010 mayoral candidate, is selling his house. His six-bed, eight-bath, 9,710-square-foot house. Here’s what you’d get for $6,995,000 up in Woodland-Normanstone, according to a listing posted to Estately within the past day:

According to city records, Peebles bought the house in 2007 for $5,900,000. Not a bad rate of return. Except that he was previously trying to sell it for $7,495,000. Let’s see if anyone bites this time around.
