Today, UrbanTurf is pausing as we approach the middle of the year to look back on the most expensive home sales in the DC region so far in 2021.
An $8.4 Million Sale Off Embassy Row
This six-bedroom European inspired home in DC is the third priciest home sale in the region this year. It closed for $8,375,000 in February. The home, located in the Woodland-Normanstone neighborhood off Embassy Row, was renovated by Barnes-Vanze Architects in 2014, a renovation that added a heated swimming pool to the grounds. The almost 13,000-square foot house also has large rooms for entertaining and backs up to an expanse of parkland.
