In the Washington, D.C. Metro area, 2015 was a big deal when it came to real estate. The Textile Museum was sold for $19 million and the Fillmore School was sold for $16.5 million. For single-family residential sales in the D.C. Metro area, almost all of the biggest deals were found in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. Only three of the 10 priciest single-family residential listings were located outside of D.C. proper, with one in McLean, Virginia and two in Potomac, Maryland. These abodes ranged from an estate that caught the Kuwaiti Embassy's eyes, a listing modeled after a "Marble House," and a European style villa with a "Hollywood style pool." Each of these abodes are over-the-top in their own ways, from multi-level terraces to wood-paneled libraries to 40-foot-long pools.
