Here’s the report, from Blockshopper:

Dale A. Louda and Ann D. Navaro bought a five-bedroom, four-bath home at 2023 R St. N.W. in Dupont Circle from Joshua M. Javits and Sabina G. Javits for $2.32 million on Jan. 3. The 3,824-square-foot house was built in 1895 in the Dupont Circle Historic District.

Here are additional details about the home, from Zillow:

A notable presence on one of Dupont’s most attractive and convenient blocks, this 1895 bow-front manse spans the width of two city lots. A beautiful, unique and grand residence with exquisite architecture and classic formality which adapts very well to contemporary life. Stunning rooms for entertaining. Charming outdoor spaces, 3 tandem parking and a 1 BR in-law suite.

A gorgeous house, in a gorgeous neighborhood — with a price tag that reflects said gorgeousness. How were Dale Louda and Ann Navaro able to afford such an abode?

Louda works as a manager of federal government relations at PPL Corporation. He was a former lobbyist. He received his J.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Law.

Navaro is the assistant divison counsel at the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Prior to that, she was a trial attorney in the environment and natural resources division of the U.S. Department of Justice. She received her B.A. from Wellesley College and her J.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Law.

Louda probably earns a nice salary from PPL — but nice enough to afford a $2.3 million mansion? Perhaps they have some family money (which would be delicious).

The sellers certainly come from distinguished stock. Joshua Javits, a Yale College and Georgetown Law grad who has his own firm focused on alternative dispute resolution, is the son of former Senator Jacob K. Javits (R-NY).

Like his late father, Joshua Javits has an impressive record of government service, in the Obama and Bush I administrations. You can check out his full CV — which is impressive! — over here.

Okay, we’re pretty tired out — that’s enough real estate voyeurism for now. If you’d like to check out additional real estate sales, purchases, or listings involving lawyers, we refer you to our friends at Blockshopper.
