Tudor, porte cochere, mullion, merlons, somewhere along that list of words you can get the impression that this is a house with European manners. It's a 1921 Tudor Revival that's a memorial to an earlier era of conspicuous elegance, a place where tuxedos are gowns are at home.
Why they're asking for the very specific price of $10,008,000 is a mystery. Maybe numerology is involved.
The other numbers provide a setting for the setting. There are 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in the 6,860 square foot space, though it is the other rooms that define the house. A wood paneled library is a natural. So are formal living and dining rooms where servants wouldn't be out of place.
A garden room acts as a transition to the 3/4 acre property. Walls and a ceiling of glass surround a space larger than some ADUs, though that's not hard.
If the weather's nice enough, venture out into landscaping that is more Northwest than European with a mix of tall trees and manicured lawn.
At the far edge of the lawn is Lake Washington and access to views across Union Bay to the Arboretum and Husky Stadium.
Want to go farther? There's an extended dock and the original boat house for that. Whether the moorage is sufficient for a matching yacht, well, that's a matter for whoever can afford the house, the land, and the staff to maintain it all.
