The Year in Curbed 2013: Exorbitant Properties

2013 is almost over and clinking champagne may be in your immediate future, but let's take a quick look at some of the most expensive listings we've seen this year. Interestingly, many of them came to light after Whale Week. From a crazy-high Airbnb rental in Great Falls to a hyper-pricey sale in Dupont Circle, here are some of this year's most exorbitant properties.

The Patterson Mansion — The most expensive sale to hit D.C. this year, the former home of newspaper heiress Cissy Patterson eventually went under contract for its asking price of $26 million. It's en route to becoming a boutique hotel.

The former Textile Museum — Since the Textile Museum will now be on the George Washington University campus, these Kalorama Mansions hit the market at a whopping $22 million.

The Williams-Addison House — Currently, D.C.'s most exorbitant ask, this renovated Georgetown home roared onto the market at $16.8 million.

And on the rental side...

The Old Post Office — This is technically a rental and the Trump Hotel will be only one of two hotels in the city to have bulletproof glass, so it counts. The Trumps will be renting this building out from the Federal Government over the next sixty years for $250K per month.

Wormley Row Condos Penthouse — The penthouse at Wormley Row Condos was the most exorbitant rental that came across the Curbed radar all year at $20K per month. And for that price, you can also get a two car garage!

This Great Falls Mansion — Want to get away from the city and rent out this Great Falls mansion for your business event? That will be $10K per night. Gotta love Airbnb.
