The Woodland Drive residence described as a 3/10-acre corner lot in Northwest sold for $3 million, reports The Washington Post. A Washington Fine Properties, LLC listing says the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom house is under contract.

The house was initially listed at $3,250,000.

It’s not yet clear who the buyer is or whether the person plans to keep the fire-damaged home as it is or knock it down.

On May 14, crews responding to a fire at the house discovered the bodies of Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife, Amy Savopoulos, 47; their 10-year-old son, Philip; and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57.

Under demands of a $40,000 ransom, they were held captive for almost a full day before they were brutally killed. The multimillion dollar home was then set on fire.

Real estate agents are obligated by law to tell potential buyers if someone died in a home — if asked and they are aware — but they do not have to volunteer the information.

In the meantime, police are continuing to investigate the case. Daron Wint has been charged with one count of murder based on DNA left on a pizza crust found inside the family’s home.
