5104 Moorland Lane, sold for $8.5 million in August, via MRISTheoretically, you could buy 66 condos in one Pooks Hill complex for the price of one luxury condo sold this year in Friendship Heights.

That and other findings are included in the 2014 Bethesda-Chevy Chase real estate roundup from real estate website Redfin.

Local Redfin agent Kris Paolini helped pull together the facts and figures. The Friendship Heights condo referenced before was sold in April for $8.65 million, making the 6,700-square-foot pad at 5630 Wisconsin Avenue the most expensive home sold in the area this year.

For the same price, one could buy 66 one-bedroom condo units at the Promenade Towers co-op buildings at 5225 Pooks Hill Road.

Two of the three least expensive properties sold this year in Bethesda and Chevy Chase were on the seventh floor of the Promenade’s North building. One sold for $130,000 in February and another sold for $137,000 in August.

The second least expensive property sold was a one-bedroom condo sold for $135,000 in the Promenade’s South building in April.

Local luxury home market, via Redfin

There’s no shortage of $1 million homes in Bethesda and Chevy Chase, and there’s been no dip in the number of those homes sold this year, according to real estate website Redfin.

The website on Wednesday presented data showing that as housing sales across the country are down, the sales of “luxury homes” priced at $1 million or more are actually rising.

Luxury home sales increased by 9 percent nationally in the third quarter of 2014, while the total sales market declined 1.2 percent compared to the same time last year.

In Bethesda, 89 homes priced at at least $1 million have been sold in 2014. That’s the exact amount sold through the first three quarters of 2013.

5104 Moorland Lane, sold for $8.5 million in August, via MRISIn Chevy Chase, there have been 43 homes priced at $1 million or more sold this year, four more than the 39 sold during the same time period in 2013.

“Million-dollar-home sales will continue to be strong for the remainder of 2014 and into next year, but those sales, at just under 3 percent of the market, will have a limited impact on overall sales growth in 2015,” according to the report.

Two Bethesda homes that were at least $5 million were sold in recent months. One, a seven-bedroom, 10-bathroom behemoth near the Burning Tree Club, sold for $5.6 million in August.

Another, an $8.5 million, nine-bedroom just behind Bethesda Elementary School, also sold in August.

The developer behind the Washington area’s most expensive condo unit ever has released images depicting the inside of the yet-to-be-built Bethesda penthouse.

Developer 1788 Holdings and Persimmon Capital Partners are building The Lauren, the eight-floor, 40-unit condo complex under construction at Hampden Lane and Woodmont Avenue.

The cheapest units in the building start at $1.5 million. The penthouse unit, known as “Residence 703″, will go on sale for $10.5 million. The developer is also promising to let whoever buys the unit to work personally with building designer Jeff Akseizer and architect Robert Swedroe during construction.

The unit will have 7,300 square feet in space, a direct access elevator, hardwood and natural stone flooring, three bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a formal dining room, 600-square-foot grand salon, a gourmet kitchen and quite a few other gaudy features.

TTR Sotheby’s International Realty is marketing the property.

Construction on The Lauren is expected to finish in the early spring of 2016.
