By Amy Rose Dobson, Curbed DC

If you've got a pile of cash and a hankering for a new home, we've got you covered with the five most expensive houses for sale in the Washington area. Three of the five are in the District, but Northern Virginia and Maryland also make appearances.

1. Number one is Georgetown's Halcyon House, built in 1787. With five bedrooms and nine bathrooms, it sits on top of a Prospect Street hill that gives fantastic views. Priced at $15 million, it has been on the market for almost a year at this price.

2. Next is a $12.5 million house in McLean with seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms overlooking the Potomac River. Each bath has a jacuzzi tub.

3. This house near Washington's Observatory Circle used to be two homes but was merged into one huge residence about 10 years ago. It went on the market for $18.5 million a few years ago but was re-listed recently for $12 million. It is a 11-bedroom, 12-bath house.

4. The next two on the list are both $10 million homes. First is another Georgetown residence along Cox's Row (and was built by Col. John Cox in the early 1800s). Six beds, nine baths and eight fireplaces.
