Capitol Hill's Landmark Bordeaux Mansion Up for $3.39M


The stretch of 14th Avenue in Capitol Hill known as Millionaire's Row was an ideal place for view homes at the turn of the 20th Century thanks to clearcutting, so the fact that lumber baron Thomas Bordeaux chose the lot at 806 14th Ave. for his home in 1904 fits perfectly. Built by architect William Kimball, the 8-BR Bordeaux Mansion is back on the market for the first time since 1999, asking $3.39M. The hexagonal turret and tall brick chimney are the immediate examples of the home's Bavarian/Tyrolean style. The four-story home is flush with porches overlooking the landscaped double-lot property. Inside, there's five bathrooms, four fireplaces and a renovated kitchen. Down in the basement you'll find a wine cellar, exercise room and indoor lap pool. But you can find us up in the fourth-floor, 360 sq. ft. media room with skylights that allow you to enjoy views of, well, just about everything. Take a very fancy video tour of the mansion right here.
