The most expensive home to ever be listed in Chevy Chase, DC has hit the market. 

Built almost a century ago, 5320 27th Street NW was listed earlier this week for $11.75 million. The five-bedroom, eight-bath estate spreads out over 13,000 square feet at the edge of Rock Creek Park.

Built almost a century ago, the home has undergone a significant renovation and expansion during that time, courtesy of DC architect George Stavropoulos, that more than doubled the size of the residence.

While the luxury listing has the usual trappings of a home carrying this price tag -- movie theater, walk-in wine cellar, tennis courts and pool -- there are some wonderful historic aspects as well.

The wrought iron fence and gates of the home came from The White House, after the previous gates at the presidential residence were not deemed adequate enough following an attempted attack on President Truman in 1950. There is a Civel War cannon on the grounds, as well as an old trolley station in the rear gardens that once stood in front of a U.S. Senate office building. 

The home is co-listed by Patrick Chauvin of Compass and Eileen McGrath of Washington Fine Properties. More details and photos below.
