What a difference a few months makes.
Since the implosion and bankruptcy filing of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX in November, its founder Sam Bankman-Fried has experienced some dramatic life changes—as have those closest to him.
A prime example? The listing of a townhouse in Washington, DC, that was purchased in April 2022 by Guardians Against Pandemics, a nonprofit group partly funded by Bankman-Fried and run by his brother, Gabe. The asking price is $3,289,000—the exact sum that was paid for the place less than a year ago.
The posh 4,100-square-foot home was reportedly purchased to serve as a DC base for the FTX crew to wine and dine the political elite. But now it’s time to cut losses, which is why the four-bedroom, 4.5-bath brick home—just a stone’s throw from the U.S. Capitol—is up for grabs.
According to the listing, the “Victorian brownstone” was built in 2017 and features modern flourishes. There are four gas fireplaces, Bosch and Wolf kitchen appliances, a spacious pantry, an elevator, and a wine fridge.
The cozy dining room features a fireplace and a glass-front cabinet to display dishes.
All of the bedrooms are en suite, including the main-floor primary, which comes with its own washer and dryer and double walk-in closets.
One of the bedrooms includes a loft bookshelf in a nifty circular cutout.
Two terraces will accommodate parties aplenty, while the home’s location is ideal for anyone with frequent business in the nation’s capital.
