Here Is the Most Expensive Home for Sale in Each State + The District of Columbia

While PropertyShark has a tradition of writing about the most expensive homes for sale by state, we have never before done a nationwide list that includes all fifty states and D.C. For the first time ever, we analyzed active listings from the entire U.S. in order to identify each state’s most expensive home for sale right now.

The most luxurious of high-end properties, these homes range between $3.5 million and a whopping $500 million and offer everything from chef’s kitchens and infinity pools to historic ruins and big-game hunting. Private ballrooms, collector’s garages, elaborate gardens, equestrian facilities and even an in-home nightclub complete with VIP lounge are also showcased. Signed by starchitects like Frank Lloyd Wright and Paul McClean, and featuring everything from gold leaf and imported Italian marble, to state-of-the-art tech and resort-grade amenities, these homes beckon to the richest of the rich.

There are feats of modern engineering like Nevada’s Crystal Pointe with its two glass funiculars and grand homes of days past, like Connecticut’s $120 million Great Island. Buyers with deep pockets can also buy iconic pieces of the American West like Colorado’s 7,000-acre West Creek Ranch, or exotic retreats like Hawaii’s $70 million wonderland of ocean, mountains and lush gardens. And then there’s California’s $500 million The One, a 105,000-square-foot ode to ultra-luxurious living, that also ranks as the #1 most expensive home for sale in the U.S. right now.

Hover your cursor over our interactive map and scroll to the end to check out the full list of the most expensive home for sale in each state plus the District of Columbia.
