Own The Home Of 'Seattle's Must Useful Citizen' For $9.45M


Nathan Eckstein was a pretty useful guy around Seattle. One of the owners of Schwabacher Brothers and Co. grocery chain, he also spent time as director of Seattle Public Schools and was a patron of the Seattle Symphony. So well thought-of, the Seattle Post-Intellicenter named him 'Seattle's Most Useful Citizen' in 1926. We guess that means this 6-BR home that just hit the market for $9.45M is 'Seattle's Most Useful Mansion.' The 1914-built Eckstein Estate has been meticulously restored and looks every bit the stately manor you'd expect. Every amenity you'd assume you'd find inside as well as gorgeously-manicured grounds surrounding the home.
