Climb to this $3.1M Cougar Mountain to Look Down on Seattle

New, 2 comments


Somewhere on 0.85 acres there should be enough room for an 8,790 square foot house, a 5 car garage, and a basketball court - and there is with this 6 bedroom, 6.25 bath Mediterranean on Cougar Mountain. Mountain is also a hint, because the ground slopes enough that the driveway looks like it starts out higher than the roof, the multiple floors (that looks like 3 but is listed as 0) step down the hill, but to get to the basketball court requires stepping down what could be about 50 more steps. But the slope opens the view, and the $3,100,000 house gets a multi-million dollar view of the Puget Sound region including Seattle's skyline, the Sound, and the Olympics. If being up that high makes you want to spend time indoors, don't worry. The style is theatrical with dual sweeping staircases, indoor balconies, lots of polished marble, richly painted walls, and arches and trimwork that curves to soften the structure. It would be tough being bored because there's an office, wood-paneled library, a movie room, gym, billiards room, wine cellar, and a sauna. The neighborhood is called The Pinnacle, which is appropriate considering the height. The mountain is named cougar, which is appropriate considering the original residents - who may not have totally left yet. It's probably best to keep the pets indoors.
