Former Sen. Claire McCaskill is selling her posh penthouse in Washington, DC. The two-term senator from Missouri lost her re-election bid in 2018 and is now ready to leave her downtown digs. So her two-bed, 2.5-bath condo located just a few blocks from the White House is currently available for $3.2 million
The asking price is a decent bump from the $2.7 million she and husband Joseph Shepard paid for the place in 2014.
The condo has earned the endorsement of its listing agent. “Over 1,700 square feet opens onto your own spectacular sky terrace, which provides seamless indoor-outdoor living,” says agent Judi Seiden. “The sky terrace has a fire pit and gas grill. Let the parties begin!”
Inside, the bright and open layout includes floor-to-ceiling glass walls. The open kitchen—with light wood cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances—features a small island with bar seating.
Adjacent to the kitchen, you’ll find a dining area that looks out to the deck. Modern golden light fixtures adorn the ceilings. The palette of the well-lit apartment features serene tones of white and gray.
There’s a large living room, high ceilings throughout, and wide-plank white oak floors. Most of the rooms, including the bedrooms, offer easy access to the 1,000-square-foot deck. The deck (or sky terrace) provides room for lounging and dining.
The unit comes with two-car garage parking and additional storage. The building boasts homeowner amenities, including a gym, pool, and access to high-end shopping and dining within the mixed-use development, as well as proximity to DC power.
Residents receive discounts at some shops, spas, pet services, and local museums.
McCaskill, 65, served in the Senate from 2007 through 2019. During her time in office, the Missouri native was one of the wealthiest members of Congress, with assets held mainly by her developer husband, according to a list compiled by Roll Call in 2018. McCaskill is currently an analyst for MSNBC and NBC.
