How Low Can it Go?

Millions now chopped off asking price for one of Georgetown's most exclusive properties

    The massive Evermay Estate is for sale.

    The Evermay Estate has been on sale since October of 2008 -- and the price for the sprawling property is getting lower and lower. 

    Unfortunately, the mansion is still too pricey for most of us.  But if you have $29 million to spend, you could enjoy the Georgetown estate's 3.5 acres of gardens, trees, and scenic views.  

    We may not realize it, but the $29 million price tag is actually a bargain.  Originally listed at $49 million, the estate's price was slashed to $39.5 million before being cut again to the low, low price of $29.5 million.

    We'll take two!

    The historic mega home includes an elevator, nine bedrooms, 8.5 baths, two kitchens, a second master bedroom, a library, exercise room and game room ... just to name a few extra perks.  

    This property is truly fit for a queen.  In fact it was rumored that Oprah was interested in the estate back in December.  A spokesman for the media giant denied she ever had any interest in the estate, but a rumor like that can't hurt sales -- or can it?
