The Most Expensive House in Dupont/Kalorama

I thought it would be fun to kick off 2014 with a look at some of the most expensive homes that sold in DC in 2013. Each week in January, I’m posting the most expensive homes that closed in 2013 in the three DC neighborhoods that my clients were most interested in. In week 4, I’ll post the most expensive home that sold in all of DC!

Last week I featured the Logan/Shaw area. This week, I’m looking at the Dupont/Kalorama area. Which, if you’re curious, I defined thusly:

*Note: there were two other listings in the area that were more expensive, but it was unclear from the listings whether they were multi-unit buildings or single-family homes, so I took them out of the running.
