There are a lot of different reasons you might know Walter Schoenfeld. Most notably to us, he was one of the original owners of the Seattle Mariners as well as VP & Director of the Supersonics back in the 70's. He and his wife Esther spent many years in their 5-BR/5-bath mansion on Mercer Island but recently sold it for the tidy sum of $4.9M (asking $5.1M). The manse, which we covered here due to our love of the "genius of panache" brokerbabble, features some serious waterfront views and 6,460 square-feet of open space to roam.
