$12 million Denny Blaine home is now Seattle's most expensive listing

The price tags don't get much bigger around Seattle

If you want to live in this 3-BR, 3.25-bath Denny Blaine home designed by George Suyama, FAIA, you better be a real mover and/or a shaker.

Oh and you better bring $12,000,000. Cause you'll need that, too.

They're a bit stingy with the photos and details but from what we can tell, you're looking at a private, well-landscaped property just primed for waterfront enjoyment and entertaining. The listing tells us the interiors focus on tall ceilings, French doors, divided light windows, and graceful columns. In other words, it sounds fancy. There's also a boat lift (obviously) on your private dock (obviously).

When we don't know much about the house itself, sometimes it's the owners who can provide a bit of insight into what living here is like. One-time owner Fred Paulsell is remembered as "one of Seattle's best-known deal makers, he helped fuel the growth of Costco Wholesale, Seattle's Best Coffee and a host of other ventures." Current owner and seller Steve Fleischmann is described as a "business leader, entrepreneur, philanthropist and adventurer" (not to mention a three-time cancer survivor). In other words, this is the home for someone with big dreams and a big wallet to match.
