Since her inauguration, Vice President Kamala Harris has been living in the Blair House, across the street from the White House, while the United States Naval Observatory, the vice president’s traditional home, undergoes renovations. Now, Ms. Harris’s former home in Washington, DC, a condo in the Westlight complex in the West End, is up for sale, according to the local multiple listing and property registration service.
The property, which went on the market Monday for $ 1.995 million, will be the second property Harris has sold since taking office. His San Francisco apartment, located in the SOMA neighborhood of California City, sold in March for $ 860,000, far more than the $ 489,000 he paid for it in 2004, records show. Harris paid about $ 1.775 million for the Washington, DC apartment in 2017, records show.
A Harris spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The roughly 1,700-square-foot apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a study, according to the listing. The unit has natural oak hardwood floors, a spa-like bathroom with teak shower floors, and a kitchen with a custom island and Italian cabinets. The building has a large rooftop barbecue deck, a private club room, a 25-meter heated rooftop pool, and a fitness center, per listing.
Mei-Mei Venners, Westlight’s director of sales, declined to comment on the owner, but said Westlight is “the edifice of power and politics in DC.” He also noted that the building was particularly suitable for Covid because it has a HEPA-grade air filtration system.
