At first glance the brand-new 4-BR, 4-bath at 2417 105th Ave NE in West Bellevue seems like a solid investment. Full of luxury amenities, you could feel pretty good living here. You'd feel even better knowing that 100 percent of the profits made from the sale of the home will go directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Per PSBJ's Patti Payne, this house is the first St. Jude’s Showplace Home in the Pacific Northwest. An extension of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway program, this luxury property was constructed entirely with giving back to the hospital in mind. They expect to be able to give upwards of $500,000 back after costs are recouped.
Built by John Buchan Homes, the home is full of materials and features donated by other companies as part of the mission. Shaw Floors, Brizo Faucets and Fixtures, and Trane Heating and Air Conditioning all provided top-line products and materials to make it happen.
The result is a luxury home you can be happy with once the good vibes of giving back wear off and you actually have to live here. The professional-grade kitchen includes ceiling height custom cabinetry, a dual zone wine fridge, and a 48-inch range & double oven. Other amenities include a wine room, exercise room, and a "Neiman Marcus-inspired dressing area" in the master suite.
Usually, buying a home like this is about you. This time, at least, its about other people too.
