Most Expensive DC-Area Homes Sold: Maryland Doesn't Make Top 10

Find out the owners of the region's priciest homes on the real estate market in 2013.

The list of the top 10 most expensive homes sold in the Washington, D.C., area in the past year reads like a who’s who of politics, business and industry. 

A descendant of First Lady Martha Washington lived in one, Jackie Kennedy’s mother purchased another during the JFK administration, and Robert Todd Lincoln called another home.

Besides famous and well-heeled owners, the other thing they have in common: Not one is located in Maryland.

The Washington Post Real Estatesection looks at MRIS’ list of the most expensive homes sold in the DC area in 2013. Twenty-nine homes sold for more than $5 million last year, a 40 percent jump from 2012, according to the Post. 

The most expensive home sold in the region last year was a McLean home on Chain Bridge Road with a view of the Potomac River; it sold for $12 million.
