The Ten Priciest Properties in Chevy Chase Right This Second

View as Map

Chevy Chase is a hot neighborhood -- at least that's what we keep hearing. Certainly this year homes that have gone on the market in that northwestern neighborhood have sold rather rapidly. There are certainly affordable apartments in Chevy Chase but there are also things like castles and the D.C. area's most expensive condo. Okay, so those two are actually across the border in Chevy Chase, Maryland but the D.C. side is no slouch when it comes to pricey properties, either. As such, Curbed is taking a look at its ten most expensive spaces, all of which are over $1.2 million. Check out the map (which admittedly bleeds a little bit into neighboring Forest Hills and Barnaby Woods) after the jump.

1. 6BR Detached Georgian

Copy Link
2806 Chesterfield Place Northwest
Washington, DC 20008

Asking price: $4,850,000
Size: 6-bed, 6.5-bath house, 6,796 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $714
The skinny: The kitchen looks like it was built for a chef intending to regularly hold massive dinner parties and the office looks like it belongs on the top floor of a K Street firm. Also, note the swimming pool out back.

2. 6BR Detached Colonial

Copy Link
5368 27th Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20015

Asking price: $3,400,000
Size: 6-bed, 7-bath house, 9,546 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $356
The skinny: The views of Rock Creek Park are spectacular and there are fireplaces in several rooms. Plus, there's room to park eight different cars on the property (albeit only two in the garage). So, calling all people with eight cars!

3. 5BR Detached Provincial

Copy Link
2842 Chesterfield Place Northwest
Washington, DC 20008

Asking price: $2,375,000
Size: 5-bed, 4.5-bath house, 6,425 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $370
The skinny: Oh you know, it's just another home with an indoor pool and private showers. What's more, film crews could fit in the living room to tape that chess game. And yes, that is bamboo growing in that garden.

4. 6BR Detached Tudor

Copy Link
4545 Linnean Avenue Northwest
Washington, DC 20008

Asking price: $1,949,000
Size: 6-bed, 6-bath house, 5,591 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $349
The skinny: Who wouldn't want a stone-walled turreted Tudor? Although since it's been remodeled to include a media room and ultra-modern bathrooms, the listing language is very adamant that this is NOT Grandma's Tudor! Okay, then.

5. 4BR Detached Colonial

Copy Link
3275 Arcadia Place Northwest
Washington, DC 20015

Asking price: $1,549,000
Size: 4-bed, 4.5-bath house, 2,373 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $653
The skinny: The price has actually dropped on this home, possibly since it's been on the market for three months now. Also of note, it seems storage for wine bottles is built into the kitchen's island.

6. 6BR Detached International

Copy Link
6314 28th Place Northwest
Washington, DC 20015

Asking price: $1,448,000
Size: 6-bed, 4.5-bath house, 4,287 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $338
The skinny: This is another place that has experienced a price chop and the exterior makes it look like some of the smaller apartment buildings in denser D.C. neighborhoods. In fact it only houses one family and it has the most interesting hanging light fixture you may ever find in a walk-in closet.

7. 6BR Colonial Townhouse

Copy Link
2711 Unicorn Lane Northwest
Washington, DC 20015

Asking price: $1,399,000
Size: 6-bed, 5.5-bath house, 4,124 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $339
The skinny: The lack of interior listing photos means that we can only see the garage and various balconies on this enormous townhouse. We'll have to take the listing's word on the two wet bars and jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom.

8. 4BR Detached Contemporary

Copy Link
7000 31st Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20015

Asking price: $1,350,000
Size: 4-bed, 3-bath house, 2,392 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $564
The skinny: Hello glass covered home inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright! Also, it's got a wraparound garden and ponds outside. This is the definition of urban oasis.

9. 6BR Detached Colonial

Copy Link
3732 Kanawha Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20015

Asking price: $1,245,000
Size: 6-bed, 4.5-bath house, 3,500 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $356
The skinny: This home has had a $50,000 price drop, so getting that porch and gated parking has just become a little easier. The exposed beams provide a nice modern touch, but the library gives it a hint of nostalgia.

10. 5BR Detached Colonial

Copy Link
5600 Broad Branch Road Northwest
Washington, DC 20015

Asking price: $1,239,000
Size: 5-bed, 3.5-bath house, 2,800 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $443
The skinny: Probably the most notable feature in this home is the glass-encased solarium that allows for quite a view of the surrounding greenery. The enormous wine cellar is rather impressive, too. Aside from that, the decor is less interesting than in the other homes on this map.
