Stephanopoulos Settles for $1M Less on Georgetown Home

While not quite on the scale of Greek tragedy, political correspondent George Stephanopoulos has sold his exquisite Georgetown mansion for close to a million dollars less than the asking price.

Stephanopoulos and his wife, actor/comedian Ali Wentworth, sold the estate to Alan Adler of Chevy Chase Trust for $5.45 million, about a million less than its $6.35 million price tag. The couple even threw in $42,000 to cover the cost of repairing an elevator and sundry other issues.

HousingWatch first reported on the home when it hit the market in February. The 5,652-square-foot, Georgian-style brick mansion comes with five bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms and a spot in one of the more upscale neighborhoods in D.C.
