If you're going to spend $3,250,000 (plus $62/month), of course you should have a swimming pool out back. The real luxury is having a house across the street from a place that has a swimming pool for your horse, too. This 10,031 square foot mansion, an inside area bigger than most Seattle yards, has a neighbor that is the Pegasus Training and Rehabilitation Center - for horses. They've got acres for lots, but you could, too.
The 5 bedroom, 5.75 bath house sits on 3.8 acres that include fences, pastures, patios, and that pool. Inside is where the real luxuries reside. The distinctive central spiral staircase with circular balcony is the sort of grand gesture that typifies the space. The grand entry hall with 30 foot high ceilings and double art glass front door lead into a long hall with a sitting area and fireplace to the far left and a media room and fireplace to the far right. The interior is decorated in earth tones framed by white trim for a country elegance. One media room is not enough, and there's one dedicated to watching the big screen. For balance, there's also a den with plenty of room for books, and another screen. There's enough room to wander about on rainy days and winter nights, but you can also sit back and watch your horses, and the neighbor's horses if you want some entertainment that's a bit more natural.
