Luxury Real Estate in Washington DC Area

From antique manors to penthouse lofts, luxury real estate in Washington Metro can be many things to many people. From homes to condos for sale, this part of the country is well-known for its upscale properties. That can mean traditional design or something modernistic and cutting edge. But the common denominator for luxury is that it is not something that you really need—but it sure is nice.

One of the most rapidly expanding areas of luxury real estate is new home construction—specifically, oversized custom mansions for sale. These are especially prevalent in suburban communities where there is still swaths of undeveloped land, such as Centreville, Fair Oaks and McLean in Virginia; and Bethesda, Rockville and Chevy Chase in Maryland.

And then there’s the cities, towns and villages where you won’t find as much new construction, but a long tradition of luxurious homes—such as Berkley, Forest Hills, Georgetown and Spring Valley. Or how about the City of Alexandria with its wonderful historic architecture? Belle Haven, VA with giant homes overlooking the river, and its exclusive country club founded in 1924?

More About the Luxury Real Estate Market in Washington DC

But this isn’t to say all luxury real estate means giant single-family homes. It can also mean magnificent condos and townhouses for sale in Washington DC as well. In the District of Columbia, penthouses can list as high as $10 million, while multilevel luxury townhouses in Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax County and Maryland have become de rigueur.

From an 11-bedroom gothic mansion built in 1885 in Logan Circle and priced at $4.45 million, to a brand-new home under construction in McLean, VA listing for $24 million, luxury comes in many forms. And for those not wanting to venture into eight-figure territory, don’t worry—new luxury homes for sale can be found in the solid mid-six figure range in outlying areas such as Maryland’s Prince George’s County.

In other words, you have a vast array of choices when it comes to luxury real estate in Washington Metro. Does opulence mean having your own private stables, or perhaps a private dock on a river? It certainly can! But it can also mean a four-story townhouse with a chef’s kitchen, rec room and roof deck. Or an uber-hip industrial loft in a downtown corridor with soaring ceilings and exposed brick.

With some of the richest counties, cities, towns and neighborhoods in the entire country, Washington Metro has fast become synonymous with opportunity, strong economies and a booming real estate market. So pick a spot, browse the listings and dream a little dream. And then give us a call at District Partners at Compass—we’ll make those luxury home dreams a reality.
