Most Expensive Home Sales For The Past Month

View as Map

It may be the shortest month of the year, but there is still 28 days for whales to make their marks on the DMV real estate scene. The biggest splash this month came from neighbors of DC power couple/WaPo big shots Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn after the historic home adjacent to theirs fetched $7.6M. Many of the other properties included on the list are the usual suspects, NW homes and Great Falls McMansions. But two notables include a McLean property and a Middleburg estate. But with sequestration right around the corner, let's see how March shapes up.

· Historic Coach House, Neighbor to Ben Bradlee & Sally Quinn, Sells Under Asking Price [CDC]


Update: The Manassas McMansion originally shown had its price inflated by a factor of 10 based on some incorrect numbers provided to Curbed. Thanks to the commenter who pointed this out. The final sales price was closer to $400,000. The map has been updated.

1248 30th Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20007

This big whale made news since this adobe was the residence of DC notables Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn. Originally listed for nearly $9M, this home sold for a bit less than ask. With connections to JP Morgan and other ballers, like Francis Scott Key and Abe Lincoln's son, this home has plenty to offer the new owners.

2. $5,954,000

808 5th Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20001

Not much to see here. Really, there isn't. The details surrounding this property are a bit murky, but it looks like a multi-unit building sold that will be repurposed into something more than Gospel Rescue Ministries.

3. $3,400,000

2808 Chesterfield Place Northwest
Washington, DC 20008

There's not much info on this NW property. Even the picture is obscured by a tree in the front yard. But the six bedroom residence was once listed for $3.6M. It's closing price was $200,000 less.

4. $3,022,457

9697 Mill Ridge Lane
Great Falls, VA 22066

Artisan Builders is making this Great Falls Colonial manse in The Lane development. With 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, there will be plenty of room to roam.

5. $2,600,000

5529 John S Mosby Highway
Middleburg, VA 20117

Located out in Loundoun County's horse country, this estate is for those who want to make sure neighbors are at bay. On an expanse of more than 27 acres, the property has a house, barn, an elevator, 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a library, and on and on and on.

6. $2,551,546

4450 Dexter Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20007

Here's a renovated Tudor in desirable Wesley Heights that is certainly "charming". Originally built in 1932, the manse sits on a nice bit of property and abuts a five acre estate. It's located at the end of the cul-de-sac so no one has to worry about through traffic on a busy street. And according to the listing, the master suite is "to die for".

7. $2,280,000

5025 Tilden Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20016

Up in Spring Valley, residences do not come cheap. And this detached home is no exception. The six bedroom Colonial manse on one-third of an acre comes with an au-pair suite so someone can watch the tykes, a finished basement, and a garage for one set of wheels.

8. $2,270,000

Copy Link
1200 Carol Raye Street
McLean, VA 22101

Taking a break from the usual faux-Colonial and Georgian manses, the McLean residence is in the Craftsman style. The home comes with the usual list of high-end features, like Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Wolf stove and range, and nearly 6,000 sq.ft. of space to maintain. But if the buyer can afford this place, he or she can afford a cleaner.

9. $2,100,000

Copy Link
1716 Q Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20009

Reduced by $200,000, this Dupont row house has everything a queen is looking for. Not only is the location prime, but the grand Victorian has 6 fireplaces, a 2 car garage (rare in the nabe), and loads of original details.
