$22M Forest Hills Estate Ties for Most Expensive D.C. Listing

New, 4 comments

A new beautiful and big-ticket home just landed on the market, making waves as the most expensive home in Washington, D.C. While tied with this Kalorama abode for the title of D.C.'s priciest listing, this Forest Hills home is owned by Samuel Lehrman, whose family co-founded the Giant supermarket. This seven-bedroom, 11-and-a-half-bathroom home, referred to as the Fessenden House, is asking $22 million and spans 20,000-square-feet. It features a pool and poolhouse, wine cellar and tasting room, and a half-size sports court. It also includes an elevator and private quarters for staff. According to the listing, the 1994 home was modeled after 18th century English and Scottish architecture and pays tribute to English architects James and Robert Adams. From the well-trimmed shrubbery to the dramatic fountain, the grounds were designed by landscape architect James Urban. Other highlights inside include wainscoting, fluted columns, and terraces with curved doorways.
