Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A $4.25 Million Waterfront Colonial in Mount Vernon

The land was originally owned by George Washington.

Built on property that was originally part of George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate, this 8,000-square-foot home features five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and seven fireplaces, plus a giant chef’s kitchen, an elevator, a home gym, a club room, and a wood-paneled library. But the standout here is the property—sidled up to the Potomac river, this waterfront home also comes with a 60-foot private dock, a sundeck, and a backyard pool, plus walls of windows to take full advantage of that view. The home is listed at $4.25 million. Read on for a quick look, then go to Washington Fine Properties for a complete tour.
