Westward, ho! Or at least, that always seems to be the case with the round up of the month's most expensive home sales. Dripping with chandeliers and with space galore, these mega-manses are all in the usual spots: Great Falls, McLean, and Potomac. Two of this month's pricey sales include what's arguably the DMV's must-have address—Chain Bridge Road. The list of enviable real estate starts at $2.8M, but the big boy this month tops out at $9.3M. Check out what buyers get for that kind of money.Read More
The Most Expensive Sales Of The Past Thirty Days
A ho-hum house with a not ho-hum price. The Maryland manse has rooms that are probably the size of some DC studios. And the listing highlights the "huge flat yard". Hills must be too much of a hassle for the yard staff.
The Parc Somerset continues to make real estate headlines, especially when a condo sold for a record $8M. Compared to that one, this one is a bargain.
People in glass houses should not throw stones or anything else that might break glass, especially since this manses has "walls of glass". Overlooking the Potomac on one of the DMV's poshest streets, this abode has enough space for six sets of wheels. That's more than the bedrooms in this place.
This "elegant chateau" used the Rodin Museum in Paris as its muse. And the interior got the classy treatment as well: It was "professionally decorated for the Kennedy Center National Symphony Directors Show House".
An unremarkable house in an unremarkable suburb still costs a remarkable amount of money. And this place too comes with a sauna so one can relax in privacy.
This famous Kalorama listing had its ask reduced slightly before landing a buyer. Located near embassies in a posh neighborhood, the manse underwent a two-year reno to ensure the place is top-notch.
A list of expensive home sales would not be complete without something from Great Falls. Built by Versailles Custom Homes on a five acre lot, the home has "Versailles" qualities. Hopefully, those qualities are sans beheadings.
Oh, lifestyles of the nouveau riche. This Maryland home went through several rounds of price chopping before finally finding a buyer. Originally at $7.5M, the home went for two-thirds its asking price.
With a salute to patriotism (notice the flag pole in front), this home, excuse us, estate, is classic through and through. And when life gets too hectic, escape to your private sauna.
This is a whopper of a whale. The "once in a lifetime" listing was on the market for $11.5M back in September but sold for $9.3M. With that many greenbacks, expect 6 (give or take) "bucolic acres", and not one, but two, guesthouses.
