A Washington, DC, mansion belonging to Moeen Qureshi — former interim Prime Minister of Pakistan and a former vice president of the World Bank — is back on the market.

The home, which Qureshi originally purchased as two separate properties and combined into one, has been on and off the market at various listing prices for years. This time, it’s listing for $8 million.

It has eight bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, and three half-baths, in addition to staff quarters that house another three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

In addition to his work with the World Bank, Qureshi also co-founded private-equity firm EMP Global and served in various leadership roles in the International Monetary Fund over a span of 10 years.

Stewart Coleman, Edward Poutier, Amanda Mitchell, and Douglas Blocker of Coldwell Banker have the listing.

The Mediterranean-style home is situated on a half-acre lot not far from Embassy Row in Washington, DC.

 

The S-shaped staircase, marble floors, and chandeliers make for a dramatic entrance.

 

The 11,478-square-foot home was built in 1927 and renovated in 2001.

 

It has 11 bedrooms in total, if you count both the main house and staff quarters.

 

The kitchen is large, complete with a butler’s pantry, granite counters, and two Sub-Zero refrigerators.

 

This breakfast room is filled with pleasant light.

 

The home has many amenities that the listing photos do not show, like a wine cellar, exercise room, and wet bar. An elevator provides access to the home’s various floors. Residents can lounge by this fireplace, one of three in the home.

 

A large dining room is perfect for more formal occasions.

 

“This property is a quintessential DC residence,” listing agent Edward Poutier said. “The estate is ideal for family or diplomatic use and can transition easily to support any function, from formal to casual.”

 

The library has built-in maple bookcases. “Many of the neighbors in this community are well-known diplomats and world leaders, ensuring the highest standards of maintenance and quality in the neighborhood,” listing agent Stewart Coleman said.

 

The pool area has some beautiful landscaping. It also has a pool room with its own bathroom and refrigerator.
