View as Map

Intense decor inside one of last month's most expensive sales. [Homevisit]

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.

1. $2,800,000

10817 Stanmore Drive
Rockville, MD 20854

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.

2. $3,175,000

5630 Wisconsin Avenue
Chevy Chase, MD 20815

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.

3. $3,600,000

407 Chain Bridge Road
McLean, VA 22101

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.

4. $3,600,000

9121 River Road
Rockville, MD 20854

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".

5. $3,675,000

1165 Orlo Drive
McLean, VA 22102

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.

6. $3,825,000

2107 Wyoming Avenue Northwest
Washington, DC 20008

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.

7. $3,850,000

9601 Georgetown Pike
Great Falls, VA 22066

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.

8. $5,000,000

Copy Link
9411 Newbridge Drive
Potomac, MD 20854

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.

9. $5,175,000

Copy Link
626 Chain Bridge Road
McLean, VA 22101

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.

10. $9,300,000

Copy Link
1288 Ballantrae Farm Drive
McLean, VA 22101

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.
