Unbeknownst to the home’s current owners at the time of its purchase, the Spring Valley five-bedroom located at 4211 49th Street NW was home to Warren Buffett during his teenage years when his father served in the U.S. House of Representatives. Leyla and Anthony Serafino didn’t discover its famous heritage until they were under contract on the property. Upon learning that his childhood home had been purchased, Mr. Buffett requested a letter from the Serafinos telling him a bit about themselves. Without hesitation, they obliged and this was his response:

The 1935 home hit the market yesterday at an asking price of $1,550,000. The property boasts five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths and has undergone a good amount of work since Warren Buffet’s time. The 3,350 square feet in the heart of Friendship Heights have been completely updated and the home shows beautifully.

Are you a burgeoning billionaire who hopes to have some of Buffett’s good fortune rub off on you? This could be the perfect purchase.
