Mega Mansion Spotlight

On Tuesday, January 10th, UrbanTurf released an article announcing that the 29,000 square foot Textile Museum in Dupont was being converted into one of DC’s largest single family homes. The property was privately purchased in 2015 when the museum moved to George Washington’s Campus, but has since been purchased by Jeff Bezos. Moreover, Bezos appears eager to begin building, and already received unanimous approval from the ANC to begin an estimated 14 months of renovations to the property.

This mammoth sale prompted us to search for other mega mansions on the market in DC. Not surprisingly, there aren’t any listings that boast a nearly 30,000 square foot figure, however, there are three stunning properties between 10,000 and 15,000 square feet that are just as lavish.
