The Oracle of Spring Valley: Warren Buffett’s Childhood Home in DC To Hit the Market
The Spring Valley house that Warren Buffett called home when he was a teenager in DC will hit the market later this week, UrbanTurf has learned. And the stories about the Oracle of Omaha’s years in the city are pretty incredible.
Buffett called the five-bedroom listing at 4211 49th Street NW home as a teenager when his father, Howard Buffett, was serving in the U.S. House of Representatives. He attended Woodrow Wilson High School and, while there, was already showing flashes of the enterprising mind that became the key to his success. He ran a business selling soft drinks, earned $175 a month as a paperboy and even sold his own horse-racing tip sheet. The year he filed his first tax return, Buffett claimed his bike and watch as tax deductions. Listing Agents: Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy
