1. 4939 NE Laurelcrest Lane Seattle, WA 98105

4939 NE Laurelcrest Ln
Seattle, WA 98105

So close to closing over the magical $10M mark at $9,750,000. Being in Laurelhurst helps, so does having 180 feet of waterfront for the 6 bed, 5.25 bath, 9,762 square foot house. Need more water? There's a pool for that, and a gazebo for watching the world go by.

2. 1920 4th Ave Unit 3001

Seattle, WA 98101

That view of the Space Needle is worth a lot in this Escala condo that sold for $8M. The 3 beds and 3 baths are luxurious, as is the rest of the 5,170 square foot unit; but the extra touch is probably the 24 hour concierge service. Oh, and the location, the location.

3. 99 Union St Unit 1801

99 Union St #1801
Seattle, WA 98101

After years on the market, this 2 bed, 2.5 bath, 4,488 square foot Four Seasons Private Residence sold for $7,155,000. As with any condo that provides high-class concierge service, check the dues, too. Though, if you can afford $7M+, you can handle the dues.

4. 6435 NE Windermere Rd

6435 NE Windermere Rd
Seattle, WA 98105

It took over a year, but this 1933 Tudor in Windermere finally found a buyer at $6,520,000. The 5 beds, 3.25 baths, and 4,630 square feet are classic; but check out the acre-plus with 90 feet of waterfront, a dock, tennis court, and a tram - tram to a waterfront guest house.

5. 1644 Windermere Dr E

Seattle, WA 98112

Hand painted English wallpaper, murals that evoke the original 1927 feel for this Broadmoor manse with 6,500 square feet for the 4 beds and 4 baths. The price for elegance and almost three lots, $6,150,000. Meticulous lawn.

6. 5155 NE Laurelcrest Lane

5155 NE Laurelcrest Ln
Seattle, WA 98105

$5,800,000 in Laurelhurst got someone about a half an acre with 90 feet of waterfront, plus a 160 foot dock. Oh yeah, and a 6 bed, 5.5 bath, 5,430 square foot house with 2 kitchens, 2 kitchens and an elevator. The panorama room is natural, yet uncommon.

7. 1000 Lakeside Ave S

Catch the theme? Waterfront, dock, and views. This one is in Leschi and sold for $5,402,500. Five beds, 4.5 baths, and 6,430 square feet definitely is expansive. The extra bits like a large wine cellar, artist studio, theater, and boat house are more than frosting.

If you can't look over the water, a golf course can do. This 1926 French chateau that sits by the fairway in Broadmoor sold for $5,150,000. With 9,180 square feet of space, fitting in 5 beds/ 5.5 baths is easily done, and done with grace. Watch for hooks and slices.

9. 400 39th Ave E

Back to the water, which means another dock, too, this time in Washington Park. A 1998 remodel of the 1952 original brought this 3 bed, 3.5 bath, 4,296 square foot bit of waterfront up to date. After spending $5,000,000, do you think the new owners will remodel again?

10. 6238 Lake Shore Dr S

6238 Lakeshore Dr S
Seattle, WA 98118

It may look like a classic Cape Cod but it was built in 1995. Nautical works because it is waterfront again. Inside, it is a 4 bed, 5 bath, 8,430 square foot manse; which sold for $4,580,000. A pool, sauna, and separate play house fill the package nicely.
