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 October 2017, the most expensive sale was nearly $6 million: a 2009 home in Broadmoor with four bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, plus four fireplaces and carefully manicured gardens.

Broadmoor dominated October’s home sales, with three on the list popping up in that neighborhood. Also watch for a home in nearby Madison Park, although few of the locations are surprising: One’s in West Seattle near the water and another is one of Capitol Hill’s early-20th-century Craftsmans. The upper-class neighborhoods of Magnolia and Seward Park are also present.
