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.

Those luxury floating homes get snatched up so quickly. This floating home on Lake Union tops the list of high-priced home sales this week at just over $3 million.

Three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms are already mansion status for a floating home, but this one adds a den and multiple living spaces. And what would a $3 million floating home be without a huge rooftop deck?

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.

This three-bedroom home in Queen Anne has four gas fireplaces and a wine cellar—and that’s just in the main house. A separate cabana adds another kitchen and fireplace for snacks and cuddling up after some time in the hot tub.

Even without the working bell tower, this 1914 former church is an impressive house, with five bedrooms and expansive living spaces inside 5,390 square feet. It sold about $100,000 above asking.
