Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A Penthouse in DC’s West End

This is what a $4.8 million condo looks like.

Curious about the priciest properties on the market in a given neighborhood? We were. How does the most expensive listing in Kalorama differ from the one in Old Town? Chevy Chase from Georgetown? Palisades versus, say, McLean? Each week we’ll give you a peek at the home in each location with the biggest price tag. This week, we’re on one of the District’s most famous streets: Pennsylvania Avenue in the West End.

It’s not particularly surprising that most of the highest-priced properties in the area tend toward the mega-mansion variety (last week’s Potomac behemoth, anyone?)—but we are an urban city, so there are bound to be some majorly luxe apartments, too. And that’s where we’ve landed this week, with a massive penthouse that tops a boutique 16-unit building on Pennsylvania Avenue. The two-level layout houses three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in more than 4,300 square feet, along with a curving grand staircase, library, formal dining room, and decked-out chef’s kitchen. High-end details finish things off: a trio of fireplaces, marble countertops, crown molding, and coffered ceilings; balconies and terraces; and two garage parking spaces. Scroll down for more photos, then go here for the full details.
