We've seen a lot of expensive real estate in our days, from $14 million sales to a $22 million listing, and even Jackie Kennedy's childhood home selling for more than $40 million. But the 3.2-acre estate we recently came across, which the Wall Street Journal reported as the most expensive property on the market, truly takes the cake. $62.95 MILLION... You could buy more than 1700 Tesla model 3's for that price, or almost 70,000 pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes. Or you can buy a 48,000+-square-foot mansion overlooking the Potomac River with nine bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, a garage that can accommodate over 30 cars and a guest house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
The estate was owned by AOL co-founder James Kimsey until he passed away in 2016, and the interiors were designed by Thomas Pheasant with the majority of the furnishings custom made for the house. The main house includes six bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, with a private wing for the master suite, a private study, a private kitchen, a dressing room, a massage room and a spa-style bathroom with steam, dry sauna and Jacuzzi. The remaining three bedrooms are in the Marsden House, the guest house built and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1959, which when viewed from above looks like a fish.
While Kimsey's estate was designed with the utmost privacy and security in mind, it was also the site of numerous social and philanthropic functions such as a private fundraising dinner for the National Zoo.
