Another month in Seattle, another crop of houses being sold for millions of dollars. In one of the fastest-growing markets for home prices, it’s not unusual for homes without all the luxury bells and whistles to be listed in the seven-figure range—and more and more neighborhoods are becoming extraordinarily spendy.

But in a market full of million-dollar listings, which sales are the most expensive? What are the most luxurious homes going for?

In November 2017, the most expensive sale went for several of those millions: a midcentury modern estate on the southwest slope of Queen Anne, complete with more than 5,000 square feet of space inside (and 15,000 square foot grounds), water views, an in-ground pool, and a cabana.

Other homes on this list have postcard views of the water, incredible historic features, and architectural pedigree. But in this market, occasionally the home itself isn’t the selling point—sometimes it just comes down to where it is.

1100 5th Ave W
Seattle, WA 98119

This midcentury home, remodeled in 2007, is full of bells and whistles, with multiple fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, and water views on every level—including the roof deck. An in-ground pool with a cabana looks over the southwest Queen Anne hillside. 5,677 square feet of space with only four bedrooms means plenty of space to stretch out.

656 W Galer St
Seattle, WA 98119

Another four-bedroom Queen Anne manse takes up the No. 2 spot—this one from a more manse-y year, 1907. It’s not far from the No. 1 most spendy home, and benefits from the same southwestern views from the slope near Kerry Park. Each of the second floor bedrooms has its own view deck.

3. 1415 35th Avenue: $3 million

Copy Link
1415 35th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122

This elaborate three-bedroom home is in the Queen Anne style, but located in Madrona. Original columns and millwork set the stage for formal spaces, including an expansive library with full-height built-in shelves. Hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, and built-in details extend throughout the home. Outside, well-manicured lawns weave in and out of garden space.

819 33rd Ave E
Seattle, WA 98112

This Washington Park colonial revival home was built much later than most colonials, in 2008. That’s more visible on the inside, with its heavy use of recessed lighting and wrought iron; out front, it has a classic brick exterior. The rear of the house, which also looks more contemporary, looks out over Lake Washington.
