Another month and another diverse display of houses in Seattle and beyond. Here are five of our favorite homes from the month.
Start with a house, a mansion, an estate, a property so large that it could be its own world; thanks to having its own airfield. This 8,347 square foot house with seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, more than 98 acres of waterfront on San Juan Island, a 2,500-foot FAA-approved airport, and privacy. The price? $20,000,000. The kind of person who can buy, build, and sell such a lot? Someone who helped create Amazon.com.
If an airfield is outside your budget, but you want something distinctive, try a remodeled church that includes the bell tower, and the bell. Usually conversions like this only have the bones of a church, but a circular stained glass window, wood grain wainscoting, and a few chalkboards are still intact. Five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, on 5,390 square feet for $2,800,000. The answer to someone’s prayers?
For those who want the expanse of a house but crave a life among the skyscrapers, this Tom Kundig-designed luxury condo could be a dream home. At 3,050 square feet, each floor of this two-story condo is bigger than some houses. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a price of $2,500,000, each bed and floor enjoys more than a million dollars of luxury. A central location helps. Expect a short commute and lots of guests.
This 1916 foursquare is like a real-life dollhouse, with picturesque, historic details and a room for every purpose. It’s also, clearly, much bigger, at an expansive 4,820 square feet. Stained glass windows welcome you to the second floor. The master even features a sunroom with Lake Washington views. The $1,670,000 price includes four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and gorgeous accents throughout.
For far less than the other four ($425,000), there’s a tiny house (373 square feet) with a tiny studio (124 square feet) perched on 0.88 acres of Orcas Island. Wrap the tiny houses in gardens and fruit trees and create a romantic setting inside and out. Thank the artists who’ve lived there for tile mosaics, live-edge wood trim, and a layout that is intentionally unconventional. Studio or retreat, expect quiet and visits by wildlife.
