DISTRICT—Another high-end property changed hands just in time to get it on the books for 2011. This one was a $7.7M deal that ranks as the third-highest sale of the year and the house has had a few well-connected owners in its past. The seller was an adviser to Henry Paulson and the owner before that was former Senator Bill Frist.
