The Most Expensive Home to Ever Be Listed in the DC Area Has Sold
The most expensive home to ever be listed in the DC region has a new owner.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that the McLean home owned by late AOL co-founder James V. Kimsey, originally listed for the tidy price of $62.95 million in 2018, has sold for about $45 million. The seller was represented by Russell A. Firestone III and Mark Lowham of TTR Sotheby's International Realty.

Kimsey built the 25,000 square-foot, six-bedroom home in 1999. Interesting features include four kitchens (at least one used for entertaining), a guest garage that can fit thirty cars, a wine room that doubles as a humidor and a massage room off the master suite. Kimsey passed away in 2016.
Interestingly, the home joins the Merrywood estate, once owned by AOL co-founder Steve Case, as one of the two priciest homes to ever sell in the DC region.
