Listed for: $6.15M
Size: 4-BR, 4-bath, 6,500 sf.
Location: 1644 Windermere Dr E, Broadmoor
The Skinny: According to the listing, this Broadmoor home had "never before...been offered on the open market." Which makes sense as to how the owners have amassed such a collection of dog art, bird art and antlers over the years. Beyond the eccentricities, there's some beautiful features, including English hand painted wallpaper, hand-planed plank floors from a 200-year-old barn, antique built-in vanities, and a waxed sugar pine paneled library stand out. No wonder it sold so quickly (listed to pending in two weeks).
Listed for: $5.99M
Size: 4-BR, 3.5-bath, 5,850 sf.
Location: 4233 91st Ave NE, Yarrow Point
The Skinny: Originally-listed for $5.998M on May 5, they curiously bumped up the price by $800 a few days later. Dunno what that was about but the place went pending two weeks later so maybe that was the magicial formula? Il Sogno sul Lago ("The Dream on the Lake") is a massive Tuscan Villa on the shores of Lake Washington built with an appreciation of it's location in mind.
Listed for: $3.5M
Size: 5-BR, 5.5-bath, 5,866 sf.
Location: 737 Lake Washington Blvd, Madrona
The Skinny: Through his own work and through the work of Olson Kundig, Jim Olson's name is synonymous with the kind of daring modern design that you might not want to meddle with. That might have been what Rick Gregerson of Gregerson Custom Homes was thinking when he did an extensive renovation here, where it still has a lot of those trademark features. Looks like the buyer agreed, snatching the home up at ask about a week after it listed.
