The view alone may be worth much of the $2,600,000 asking price for this Georgian mansion that was built in 2007 on over two acres of Mukilteo hillside. The 8,550 square foot four story house probably explains part of it, too. And then there’s the marble, and then there’s the rest of the list.
It is a six-bedroom, six and one half bathroom expanse of marble, glass, metal, crystal, and rich wood. Take away the furniture and see shining marble tiles stretching from the entry, through the formal spaces, including a very formal looking kitchen, and the wine room. A wine room, because why put the bottles in a cellar when you can have more space to sit and taste. This is a house for entertaining in grand style.
With almost a fifth of an acre indoors, there’s room for what you’d expect in a mansion: an office that’s big enough for a library and small conferences, a billiards room with space for the cue when you have to make those tricky shots, and a theater complete with the deeply upholstered chairs (with cupholders, of course.) Throughout, there are chandeliers, metalwork railings, curved and spiral stairs, and artfully recessed ceiling coves.
While the more public spaces are impressive, the master suite may be the most appealing. It is large, but the view is larger. The balcony isn’t just for Juliet and is broad enough for dozens to enjoy the sunset. The master bathroom continues the marble and glass theme, including a curved shower with a glass side that lets the view reach in father.
Outside, a series of flagstone decks, patios, and brick walkways create a paved courtyard that is interspersed with decorative hedges. If the parties are big enough to justify that much space, then it is good that the front is mostly paved as driveway. Very little, if any lawn, is left to mow.
From the steel fencing, the gated access, the columned entry, there’s no doubt that this is a place for regal living - and probably a large staff.
