WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The red brick mansion in which a wealthy D.C. family and their housekeeper were held hostage, tortured and murdered this past spring is now up for sale.

On May 14, the bodies of businessman and philanthropist Savvas Savopoulos; his wife, Amy; their 10-year-old son, Philip; and their housekeeper, Vera Figueroa, were found inside the house, just blocks from Embassy Row and the vice president's residence.

They had suffered stab wounds and blunt force trauma, and the house had been set on fire.

The five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath property on Woodland Drive NW is for sale for $3.25 million. Its windows are still boarded up, the fire damage still clearly visible from the street.

Days after the bodies were discovered, police arrested Daron Wint, 34, and charged him with murder in the case.

Court records have indicated a $40,000 ransom was delivered to the house while the four victims were being held hostage for more than 18 hours. CNN also learned tens of thousands of dollars were mysteriously left behind in the home, along with millions of dollars in art and jewelry.

Police and prosecutors have said repeatedly they believe others beside Wint were involved in the crime but have so far not named any additional suspects.

Investigators found a bloody baseball bat in the upstairs bedroom where the three adults' bludgeoned bodies were found. They also found duct tape believed to have been used to restrain the victims and matches thought to have been used to set the house on fire. Another possible murder weapon was found inside the mansion: a samurai sword taken from Savvas' martial arts collection.

Wint worked as a welder at the family's company, American Iron Works, 10 years ago.

His former attorney in this case, Sean Hanover, maintains Wint was framed. "We believe he was set up and that there are more people involved in this," said Hanover.

Wint is currently represented by the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia.

Wint has pleaded not guilty. His next court appearance is scheduled for December 17.
