The mansion in Washington, D.C., where a family and their housekeeper were tortured and murdered earlier this summer is now on the market with a price of $3.25 million.

The corner lot property located not far from Vice President Joe Biden’s residence in Northwest D.C. became the scene of a brutal kidnapping and murder May 14 when a man tied up and tortured a family of D.C. socialites.

Authorities found the bodies of Savvas and Amy Savopoulos, their 10-year-old son Philip and their housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa in their burning home after the assailant set the house on fire.

Police were later able to identify the family’s killer as Daron Wint, 34, after they obtained his DNA from a slice of pizza in the home.

Wint ordered two pizzas from a Domino’s in the northwest D.C. neighborhood the night of May 13 while he was holding the victims hostage and before he allegedly burned their house down the following day.

While holding the family hostage for nearly 10 hours, police say Wint tortured Philip in an effort to extort a ransom out of the family. Eventually, a Savopoulos assistant dropped off $40,000 in cash and Wint escaped in a Porche belonging to the family.

Wint was arrested weeks after the incident and charged with first degree murder. He is currently being held without bond.

According to the real estate listing, the 10,000 sq. ft. home is three stories tall with five bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms.

The property is being sold “as is,” according to the listing, with the fire damage still showing.
