Today, UrbanTurf is looking at the three priciest homes to sell in the DC area over the last few months. 

7,000 Square Feet in Kent

A five-bedroom Colonial Revival home in DC's Kent neighborhood sold just last week for $6.4 million, making it the third priciest home to sell in the DC region in recent months. The 7,000 square-foot house was extensively renovated by the previous owners with the help of Horizon Builders, Barnes Vanze Architects, and Andrew Law Interior Design. Standout features include a formal living room, a dining room with a fireplace and a large gourmet kitchen that leads into a breakfast room. The primary suite looks out on the rear yard and gardens, and comes with two walk-in closets, a dressing room, and a small coffee bar. The lower level has a large recreation room, a generous mudroom, a temperature-controlled wine room, and access to the oversized three-car tandem garage. 


Brand New in Wesley Heights

This new-build in DC's Wesley Heights neighborhood sold at the end of June for $8.8 million. Looking out on Battery Kimble Park, the custom six-bedroom home from the Cliveden Group, Zantzinger, and Wouter Boer Architects has many of the calling cards of a home at this price tier. Those include a 40-foot saltwater infinity pool, a 1,000-bottle capacity wine room, a huge state-of-the-art kitchen, and several private terraces. 


$13 Million and Change in Langley Farms

The most expensive home to sell in the DC region this summer is a six-bedroom, 14,000 square-foot house in McLean that was purchased for just north of $13 million. On the market for the first time since it was built in 2010, the home is located in Langley Farms adjacent to the historic Hickory Hill mansion.

Some of the standout features of the house include a handcrafted mahogany and glass front door, a custom pattern ceiling in the dining room by artist David Wiggins, and a sunroom with antique brick throughout.

The northern Virginia estate also has many of the trappings expected for a home with this price tag, including meticulous landscaping, a wine cellar, a billiard room, and a fitness room. Outside, there is an infinity pool with a waterfall, a fire pit, a cabana, and a number of terraces and covered terraces. There is also a separate guest house with a garage.
