Former owner: I.F. Stone
Asking price: $849,900
Details: The listing describes it as the ideal "party house," with a deck and a pool -- no mention that the detached Tudor in Northwest Washington near Chevy Chase was the long-ago home office of lefty journo icon Izzy Stone, whose self-published weekly newsletter gained a big following and bigger influence in the '50s and '60s. But the connection was made by PR guy/blogger Craig Brownstein, who hailed Stone as an DIY inspiration to future generations of muckraking bloggers. Four bedrooms, three baths.
