City Paper is not for tourists
Two days ago, I blogged about a fun, unexpected little discovery: A condo in Georgetown had sold for $7.295 million, a likely record-breaker.
Since then, I’ve sent around e-mails to condo marketers and real estate agents asking if they knew of any deal that topped that. So far, no revelatory info, though one person threw in this line “that was a very interesting situation – private sale.”
So now, we must address the next logical question: Who just made bank? The unit that sold is PH2D. The current property owner registered with the city is Jamie Darvish, not a familiar name to me. But Washingtonian picked up on it when he bought the place in April 2006.
Car mogul Jamie Darvish bought a four-bedroom, six-bathroom penthouse apartment at the Ritz-Carlton in Georgetown for $4.5 million. The apartment listed for $6 million and has a master bedroom with a wall of windows overlooking the Potomac as well as a private terrace. Darvish, whose father, John Darvish, founded Darcars Automotive Group, is general manager of his family’s company.
Of course, the next logical question is who just paid bank? I hope to god it is Oprah. But so far, the info’s not public.
