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.
