You've probably heard by now that former Seattle real estate mogul Michael Mastro and his wife Linda were recently discovered living in France, which is notable since they have been in hiding for the last 16 months following bankruptcy proceedings. As of this moment, the couple are trying to fight extradition but if they are forced to come back the United States, they certainly won't be able to visit either of their former Seattle-area homes. Both were sold in 2010.
If they could come back to a former home, which one would you recommend for them?
First up is their 5-BR, 3.75 Bath Clyde Hill mansion 2040 89th Ave NE. It sold two years ago for $1.925M and understandably so given the expansive kitchen, exercise room, in-ground pool, hot tub and large deck. And if you'd like a little more room in your master bedroom, you'd have one that takes up the entire second level. Feel free to invest in a California King bedframe.
The second mansion, a 4-BR, 3.75 bath Medina home at 3435 Evergreen Point Rd, makes this a little bit of an unfair fight. Built in 1998 and including 1.15 acres of property, this mega-sized house sold for $9.1M in 2010. Along with all the expected accoutrements, you also get your very own boat dock, elevator, greenhouse and security gate. You don't get a water view or a mountain view here, you get all the views.
