Greater Washington’s residential real estate market had some particularly memorable deals in 2017.

The D.C. metro’s biggest sale last year remains NVR Inc. founder Dwight Schar’s McLean mansion for $35 million in July — which also holds the overall record for a single-family home in the region. That could eventually be eclipsed by Revolution CEO Steve Case’s nearby McLean estate, listed for $49.5 million in June and still on the market.

For now, though, the area’s top-selling homes last year range in price from $35 million down to $5.5 million.

A handful of others below that range also drew attention this year. That list includes:
▪The McLean home that Greater Washington real estate veteran Ray Ritchey and his wife, Anne, sold to Washington Capitals star T.J. Oshie and his wife, Lauren Cosgrove Oshie, for $5.2 million;
▪The Potomac mansion that David Ritz of Ritz Camera and his wife, Robyn, sold to Juliana Marriott and her husband, Kenneth Keith, for $4 million;
▪The Washington home of late conservative political commentator John McLaughlin that sold for $2.625 million;
▪The D.C. house that Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his wife, Susan, sold for $2.04 million, before buying a home about a mile away in the same neighborhood.
