Swann Street Murder House For Sale

Would you buy a home if you knew someone was murdered in it?

If the thought of doing so doesn't bother you, you may want to check out the house at 1509 Swann Street NW -- the home where Robert Wone was killed on Aug. 2, 2006.

The home, which was sold once already in 2008 for $1.475 million, is on the market again and has an asking price of $1.59 million.

The description:

LUXURY AT IT’S BEST. 4BR 3.5BA TOWN HOME ON PRETTY SWANN ST IN VIBRANT DUPONT. ORIGINALLY BUILT IN 1886 THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED WITH TOP-OF-THE-LINE AMENITIES THROUGHOUT. FROM THE ROOF DECK WITH CITY VIEWS TO THE NEW LOWER LEVEL IN-LAW SUITE WITH SEP ENTRANCE. NO DETAIL HAS BEEN OVERLOOKED IN FIVE FLRS OF ELEGANT LIVING. PLUS PATIO AND GATED PARKING FOR TWO CARS.

No mention of a death in there, of course. And that's perfectly legal, as realtors are not required to disclose the past history of a house before a sale unless someone asks, according to a story in the Gazette from April.
