Gaard Swanson, known to news-viewing Seattleites as the sports director for KIRO 7 is picking up to move (on up) to a CBS affiliate in Orlando to be the marquee anchor. (It's about time...why waste such a pretty face behind the scenes?) As such, he has listed his 4-bed, 5,790 sq. ft. pad in Magnoliato relocate. Apparently he was fairly well compensated for his time at Seattle news station, as while the place doesn't sport any outlandish features, it has the basics of a million dollar home: views of the Puget Sound, a chandelier or two, a wine cellar, a second kitchen, a terrace/garden area, and digs situated on a 10,297 sq. ft. lot. On the market now for over a month, the "estate" is going for $2.55 million.
