The property, a carriage house at 165 Columbia Heights, was sold by Corcoran for $4.1 million, according to

As reported in the Eagle last fall, the property, which originally had an asking price of $4.5 million, was configured as two apartments plus a four-car garage.

Corcoran’s Ellen Newman, who is handling sales along with Lisa Detwiler, said at the time “the Watchtower is a pleasure to work with and the properties are in excellent condition.”
