A Washington, DC, mansion belonging to Moeen Qureshi — former interim Prime Minister of Pakistan and a former vice president of the World Bank — is back on the market.

The home, which Qureshi originally purchased as two separate properties and combined into one, has been on and off the market at various listing prices for years. This time, it’s listing for $8 million.

It has eight bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, and three half-baths, in addition to staff quarters that house another three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

In addition to his work with the World Bank, Qureshi also co-founded private-equity firm EMP Global and served in various leadership roles in the International Monetary Fund over a span of 10 years.

Stewart Coleman, Edward Poutier, Amanda Mitchell, and Douglas Blocker of Coldwell Banker have the listing.

The Mediterranean-style home is situated on a half-acre lot not far from Embassy Row in Washington, DC.
