Marion Barry’s Mayoral House Is Pretty Sweet

Between the Cool "Disco" Dan documentary, the Cool "Disco" Donuts fiasco, and Cindy Adams, the 1980s are back. So why not remember them in style by buying the house Marion Barry lived in during his first three terms as mayor? You can, for just $469,000.

Barry says that the 3607 Suitland Road SE four-bedroom is a "good house," reports the Washington Post's Mike DeBonis, so that's all the endorsement you need. And check out the amenities:

  • A weight room.
  • Granite counter-tops
  • Two (!) fireplaces.
  • A basketball hoop Barry built for son Christopher Barry.

Unfortunately for fans of a hypothetical Mayoral Cribs, Barry hasn't lived in the home for 23 years. Barry's son and then-wife Effi Barry moved out in November 1990, while Barry's exit came in the less voluntary form of a six month prison sentence.
