The 10 most expensive home sales from April 2017

From floating homes to Pike Place condos

View as Map

These top ten highest-priced homes sold in April 2017 have one, unsurprising thing in common: Some incredible views.

The views come with the territory in high-priced Pacific Northwest real estate. But the views are unique in last month’s top-dollar home sale: The water views are up-close and personal. (Yes, it’s a floating home.)

Last month, we saw a cluster of homes bordering Lake Washington in the Denny-Blaine and Madison Park areas on the most-expensive list.

This month, it’s kind of a mix: They range from that floating home to a huge former church in Green Lake to a large house in Capitol Hill to a Magnolia modern. There’s a good share of waterfront homes, but only one on Lake Washington. And this time, only one condo makes the cut—and it’s a pretty huge condo.

We’ve listed the most expensive home sales of last month below as compiled by Estately, from large estates to waterfront condos.

Seattle, WA 98112

This looks like kind of a normal—big, but normal—four-bedroom home from the outside, but it packs a whole lot inside: more than 5,000 square feet of living space, including a theater and a wine cellar.

It doesn’t hurt that it’s in an especially pricey zone, where Capitol Hill borders with Montlake.
