5 of our favorite Seattle-area homes from March

Airfields, church towers, and tiny houses

Windermere

Another month and another diverse display of houses in Seattle and beyond. Here are five of our favorite homes from the month.

Windermere

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.
