Adrienne Arsht, billionaire banker and donor to many an artsy cause, has decided she doesn’t need a third multimillion-dollar residence in Washington D.C. after all. Last week, she listed a 10-year-old, six-bedroom estate near American University—complete with 12-seat tiered theater, two-story library, 14-car circular driveway, staff quarters, and two reflecting pools—for $7.95 million. It’s a bit of an upgrade; she bought the place last August for only $6.625 million from a couple that had just finished building a house on the Chesapeake. Being a widow in her late 60s, it’s unclear what she’d need all the bedrooms for, besides some serious entertaining.

But no worries! Arsht still has a condo at 1155 23rd Street NW, which she bought last March for $1.9 million (Democratic Senators Harry Reid and Frank Lautenberg also have pieds a terre in the complex). In May, she picked up a 7-bedroom house at 2850 Woodland Drive NW—actually, the deed shows that Bruce Dunnan signed it over to her for $10. And of course, she still has her home base in Miami, a waterfront pad that looks from above like something you’d never want to leave.
