Seattle has a notoriously hot real estate market, so it’s not much of a surprise that we’d have a robust list of most-expensive listings. Still, most of Seattle’s top 25 most expensive homes seem to operate on a whole different level—one floating even further above a high-priced market driven higher by competition. There’s money, and then there’s yacht moorage money.

Past a certain threshold, the market starts to cool off, and homes aren’t flying off the market as quickly as your ordinary craftsman. Some of these homes have been on the list for a while, like Seattle’s number one most expensive listing, the Sam Hill Mansion. That one’s been on the market for well over a year. Ryan Lewis’s Magnolia home has been on this list for several months, too.

Many neighborhoods appear more on this list than others, too—especially exclusive beachfront communities like Windermere and Laurelhurst. Waterfront is a big theme here in general, from Washington Park mansions to downtown condos with views of Elliott Bay.

This concrete Capitol Hill mansion has been Seattle’s most expensive listing for nearly a full year now. Businessman Samuel Hill used the mansion originally built the place for his friend Crown Prince Albert of Belgium to visit.

Now many of the original features are gone due to various renovations—including one that converted the horse stable into a gym.
