A brick-and-limestone mansion in Washington, D.C. has closed for $18 million, making it the district’s most expensive home sale of 2015, according to the listing agents and real estate records.

The 20,000-square-foot home in the Forest Hills neighborhood has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and five half baths, according to the Wall Street Journal. There is also an elevator and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.

The nearly one-acre property is comprised of three lots and includes formal and informal English gardens, a pool, a basketball court and fountains.

The seller was Samuel Lehrman, founder of retail development company Lehrco, according to public records. Mr. Lehrman’s family co-founded the Giant Food supermarket chain.

Listing agent Nancy Itteilag of Long & Foster Real Estate declined to identify the new owner, who paid in cash, but said he was an international buyer. The home was publicly listed for $22 million in April with co-listing agent Kathleen Coumou.

The previous record sale in D.C. was in April 2014 when the Williams-Addison house at 1645 31st St. NW sold for $16.1 million. [WSJ]  TRD
