While everyone knows D.C. home prices are high, every once in a while a super-sale occurs.

The Tudor-style estate at 3134 Ellicott St. NW recently broke records for the most expensive home sale so far in 2016 in the entire metro area. Listed at $10 million by Nancy Taylor Bubes with Washington Fine Properties, the home sold after just 25 days on the market for $9.1 million. Christie-Anne Weiss and Christopher Ritzert, agents with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, represented the buyers.

The Forest Hills property includes 1.1 acres with a swimming pool, perennial gardens, mature trees, a guest house with two bedrooms and a Tudor-style stone home that has been renovated and expanded.


The main house has more than 6,500 square feet, including six bedrooms and 10 baths. The first level features a great room with a cathedral ceiling and exposed beams, an adjacent clubroom with a cathedral ceiling and an upgraded kitchen that opens to a family room. The finished lower level has an open living area and an exercise room.
