Luxury Properties in the DC Metropolitan Area

Mention the term luxury properties in DC Metro and a variety of images pop to mind. It could be the A.S. Gillette Mansion in the heart of Washington. Built in 1890, this 16-bedroom castle is currently listing for $6.8 million. Or, it may not be a single-family home at all, it could be a three-bedroom penthouse in Arlington overlooking the Potomac for $3.2 million. How about a custom stone manor overlooking a championship golf course in Loudoun County for $4.5 million? Or a contemporary glass tree house in Battery Kemble Park with an indoor pool for $2.495 million?

While there isn't one specific style of pricy home in DC Metro, it's also worth noting that luxury properties don't only mean those that come with four walls. Or if they do have walls, they may be worth tearing down. With space at a premium, sometimes it's the land alone that comes with the biggest price tag. Imagine what you could do with that 1950's split-level tear-down that's perched at the river's edge? Or, it may be a 3.25 acre lot on the C&O Canal in Maryland's Montgomery County, listing for $3.25 million. That's just a million an acre and approved for a 30,000 square-foot home. Imagine the barbeques you could throw?
