Today, UrbanTurf is looking back at the three priciest homes to sell in the DC area this year. Interestingly, the most expensive home sales -- including the highest-priced condo to sell in the city -- all closed for around $11 million. 


The Most Expensive Condo Ever Listed in DC

The most expensive condo to ever sell in DC closed in February for $11 million, after being listed for $14.5 million. One of five penthouses at the Ritz-Carlton, the 5,500 square-foot home is the combination of two units purchased in 2006 by philanthropist Michelle Smith. Smith, who died in 2020, was the daughter of Robert H. Smith, who developed much of Crystal City. In addition to 5,500 square feet of interior space, the condo has an 1,800 square-foot terrace with views of the Potomac River. Smith invested approximately $20 million into the purchase, renovation and build out of the residence.
