Tax Thief Harriette Walters’ Northwest Home is For Sale
Mid-July, Housing Complex reported that infamous D.C. tax thief Harriette Walters' lovely St. Thomas home would be auctioned off later that month.
Well, as of last Thursday, Walters' Washington home is also up for sale, the Reliable Source first reported today. This "spacious and gracious all brick rambler," as the listing states, faces a sea of trees, looking east toward Rock Creek Park.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom property includes a "lovely screen porch in rear and party-sized rec room on [the] lower level" and "numerous details with touch of class."
The property listed for $715,000, which sits on the low end of the price range for similar properties in that zip code (selling between $650,000 to $1.295 million in the last year).
According to the Post's piece, Walters bought her home in 2001 for $420,000. The sale certainly won't yield the same bounty as her tax scam ($48.1 million). But Walters might have pulled in a few more $100,000s than she originally paid—certainly enough to buy a couple flutes and goblets by Steuben, some silver-plated Iguanas, and a Faberge egg or two.
