One of the most expensive homes in the DC area isn't even built yet, but that didn't stop it from finding a buyer.
River Point, a collection of three parcels totaling three acres overlooking the Potomac River in McLean, closed last week for $24 million, down from its original list price of $28.75 million. Mark Lowham of TTR Sotheby's International Realty represented the buyer and seller in the transaction.
The $24 million price tag comes with more than just three of the most picturesque acres in Virginia. It also includes complete building plans for a sprawling 30,000 square-foot home with seven to eight bedrooms, a carriage house, tennis court, and garage and surface parking for more than 50 cars. The plans were designed by Atlanta architect Stanley Dixon.
River Point sits next door to the former home of late AOL co-founder James V. Kimsey, which was the most expensive home to ever be listed in the DC area with a price tag of $62.95 million. It sold earlier this year for $45 million.
