Be King or Queen of the Hill On This Olympia Mountaintop


One way to always win King (or Queen) of the hill - buy the hill. There's a 6,730 square foot Mediterranean mansion for sale sitting on about 8 acres of hilltop in Olympia. Buy it and you get to claim the title; but it is going to cost about $1,495,000 (plus an extra $170/month). That gets you 180 degree views of the south Sound including the Olympics, Mt. Rainier, and Eld Inlet. The house is meant to impress, which is one of the reasons for the site selection. The foyer includes a grand, sweeping staircase, a curved balcony, and arched windows framing the view. There are 4 bedrooms and 4.25 baths and a lot of room: 6,730 square feet of it. One of the master baths looks big enough to host small meetings. One of the closets is big enough to have a closet within the closet. Outside, the orientation is either towards the view, or back in front where there's enough pavement for very large parties. The property is also close to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, though this house is probably a step or two up from the regular officers' quarters.
