Maybe it's all those late night '90s rerun binges some of us on the Curbed Seattle staff have been indulging in, but we just couldn't help but notice the resemblance between (fictional) Broadway producer, Maxwell Sheffield's New York home and this new listing right here in Issaquah. That is to say that had Fran Fine been kicked to the curb in "one of those crushing scenes" on the West Coast, she might have knocked on the door of this 5,000 sq. ft. private home. (Or least shaken the private security gate out front...) Just take a look at the whitewashed living room! And the entryway! And can't you just picture Nanny Fine propped up the desk, swinging her legs and whining "Oh, Mistah Sheffield!" in that office? Had the show taken place in the Pacific Northwest, the house would be sure to be surrounded by an abundance of trees, shrubbery, and other green things, rock a sizable porch, definitely have an backyard in which the kiddos can frolic, and include a bizarre, albeit pseudo useful feature that comes with the home. As the house sits on 4.97 acres, let's just say check, check, check, and a "built-in vacuum" (whatever that means) certainly fulfills the quirky feature criteria -- check. This doppelganger home is going to run you a measly $1.298 million, which is a pittance relative to the "real deal!"
