Seattle Power Brokers Only For This $1.5M Des Moines Estate

New, 2 comments


Oliver David (O.D.) Fisher arrived in Seattle in 1906 and quickly set about integrating his family's future and fortunes in the success of the region. Metropolitan Building Company, Safeco Insurance, Fisher Broadcasting and Fisher Flouring Mills all come from him and his family. While the family had many homes throughout Seattle, it was this estate in Des Moines that was originally O.D.'s vacation home. Built in 1913, the 7-BR, 5.75-bath home would later belong to former Republican U.S. Representative John Cunningham. Clearly, if you want to own this 5,550 square-foot waterfront estate, you need some juice. Beautiful millwork, multiple water-facing sun rooms, a gorgeous bookcase and a massive detached garage with an apartment up top. Locked behind a gated entry on almost three acres, it's a secluded getaway for Seattle's elite that's not all that far from Seattle.
