D.C.-Area Real Estate: These Luxurious Properties Are Great For The End Of The World

via Realtor.com

WASHINGTON -- Assuming that the various apocalyptic prophesies about 12/21 are true just for a moment, wouldn't you agree it's a great time to take out a big big mortgage, and see the end of the world at your new luxury home?

This week's real estate roundup features the most apocalypse-worthy D.C.-area real estate around. We've got a gigantic horse farm, a Disney castle of a house, a whole bunch of impossibly fancy luxury condos and more pads featuring chandeliers over bathtubs than we previously knew existed. (Evidently that's a thing! A thing that strikes us as being a little bit dangerous, maybe -- but, hey, if the end of the world is coming, let's leave aside these more plebeian concerns about water and electricity being a bad combination.)

Our pick: Contemplate eternity in that infinity pool pictured above. It sits by a stunning contemporary house on top of a private hill. It'd be the perfect place to see the end of the world. Or, even better, to see the world keep going on for a nice long time.
