The most expensive home in Washington DC is actually a 34,000 square foot property that comprises two adjacent historic buildings. The structures used to house Kalorama’s Textile Museum and were sold for $19 million to a private owner. The Textile Museum was founded by George Hewitt Myers, who tasked a skilled architect named John Russell Pope with the construction of the property. The Adam style estate boasts a sublime grand foyer as well as checkerboard marble tiles floors. At the ground floor, the rooms flaunt cedar, American oak and Italian walnut paneling for a touch of coziness and elegance.
