The 20 Most Expensive Homes Sold in the U.S. in 2017

Around 5.8 million homes sold in the US in 2017, ranging from bargain fixer uppers to multi-million dollar estates. While the average sale price was in the mid to high $300s, some of these properties sold for a lot more. In fact, some of them sold for more money than most of us could possibly imagine. While your finances might not be able to handle purchasing a home with a 7 digit sales price, it doesn’t mean you can’t dream. The following 20 most expensive U.S. homes sold in 2017 should give you plenty of ideas for your own dream home.

20. 81 N. Briar Patch Rd., East Hampton, NY – Purchased for $25.925 million on August 15, 2017

Known as “Pond House” because it sits on a 2-acre site that includes 203 ft. of Georgica Pond frontage, this property first went on the market in 2009 with an asking price of $35 million, meaning it took forever (and a significant price drop) to sell it. The 12,000 sq. ft. home includes 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, an infinity pool, spa, separate guest cottage, and countless architectural extras. They include hand-carved heated marble tubs, 18th-century French Louis XV carved stone fireplaces, hand pegged parquet floors installed by French craftsmen, oak paneling with a hand-applied French chalk finish, and a wraparound terrace made of Turkish limestone. Before it was sold to Jay-Z and Beyonce, the previous owner rotated the entire thing 90 degrees to face west over the pond.
