Slate decided to took a look around the United States at the places with the highest median household income in each state. Mining the Census Bureau tabulates figures, they were able to figure out where the affluent towns are and here in Washington State, the most affluent town in the entire state is Clyde Hill. With a median income of $210,500, the 3,000-person enclave that borders Bellevue, Kirkland, Medina, Yarrow Point and Hunts Point is full of folks with lots a lot of money and the homes to prove it. We decided to check real estate listings to see just how affluent the most affluent homes on the Clyde Hill market would be. It turns out...pretty affluent. Below is a map of the ten priciest homes currently on the market and the cheapest one will still run you $1.8M.Read More

The most expensive home on the market that's actually completed, this 2007-built 6-BR includes "every amenity that a 5 star hotel has to offer and even more." We're assuming there isn't a concierge living in the basement, but, you never know...
1456 92nd Ave NE ($3.5M)
This 2007 Contemporary Craftsman checks in with 4-BRs and 4,992 sq. ft. of living space. Plenty of open space to make your own, though we suppose we'd personally want a little more backyard for that kind of money...
9232 NE 31st St. ($3.44M)
This brand-new 6K sq. ft. Crossmark Homes design is looking for a buyer to complete it with their own finishing touches. Deep wood finishes throughout, there's also a water feature out back that brings a little nature back into the 30K sq. ft. lot. Mountain and city views to boot.

8818 NE 19th St. ($1.88M)
If the broker babble is to be believed, they're asking $1.88M because the address is 8818. Or something like that. A midcentury modern feel in the house but the almost half-acre lot means there's a ton of potential inside and out.
9335 NE 30th St. ($1.8M)
Over 4,000 sq. ft. at the water’s edge of Aqua Vista Lake. Features include an en suite master bedroom on the main floor, cherry-lined library and granite/stainless kitchen. Home bar and furnished lower level game room offer a lot of potential for fun.
