What $5,000,000 can buy you near Seattle right now

If you can afford a $5 million home, you've certainly got lots of choices around here

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's listings to see what your budget will get you across the city. Today we decided to find out what $5,000,000 can get you all around town. You tell us which place you'd buy.

We begin in the mecca of Puget Sound luxury: Medina. There we find a newly-built modern 5-BR at 7900 NE 22nd Street asking $4.8M. You know it's fancy when the residence has it's own name: Modern Medina. The southwestern-facing garden courtyard is the eye-catcher here but with clerestory windows, vaulted ceilings, and a large NanaWall, this modern house celebrates clean lines, sunlight, and air.

Now on to Magnolia where the 4-BR at 4334 W Cramer Street is listed at $5.188M. The 5,800 square-foot home was built in 1919 and the pool is noted as "the oldest residential pool in Seattle." Being right on the edge of Discovery Park doesn't hurt either when it comes to natural surroundings. There's also a gorgeous treehouse/guesthouse on the property.

In Shoreline, you'll find this 1937-built, 5-BR estate originally designed by H.T. Lindeberg at 50 NW Cherry Loop. We've watched it bounce around the market from $6.25M to $5.725M and eventually $5.38M. Now it's come down to $4.8M. The brick Georgian boasts a curved staircase, intricate millwork & hardwoods, wood-paneled library and four fireplaces. Outside there's a massive lawn as well as gardens, a fruit orchard & lap pool.

It's been a while since we checked in with the 4-BR, 5-bath estate at 6238 Lake Shore Drive S in Seward Park. Last we saw in 2015, it was asking $6.5M. Since it's still available, you had to figure it's come down and now they're asking $5.1M. The Stephen Sullivan-designed Cap Cod cover a lot of ground and seems like it's made for families and/or grandchild visits. The furnished basement includes a game room, workout area and sauna while there's plenty of well-manicured greens outside with the pool.

Finally we end up in Clyde Hill where the 6-BR, 5.75-bath home at 9621 NE 29th Street is asking $4.79M. Lots of European influence here where stone & wood, granite & pillars all blend together. Special bonus in one of the kid's rooms where there's a treehouse ready to go. However, every room has plenty of space so everyone gets to spread out and enjoy the surroundings.
