Estate with a view | 4 Thompson Circle NW, Washington (HomeVisit)

With the help of Rockville-based multiple-listing service Bright MLS, we compiled a list of some of the most expensive homes for sale in the Washington area.

Listings range from $3.99 million to $7.9 million. One of the most expensive new listings this month is a somewhat notorious 25,000-square-foot-house on Summit Drive in Fairfax, which has had its price reduced since it didn’t sell at an auction in June.
