Seattle's 10 largest homes for sale, mapped

In this instance, bigger is better

View as Map

Next week is Micro Week on Curbed so before we dig into all of the awesome tiny spaces around Seattle we figured it was a good time to take a gander at the grandiose homes that take up as much space as they possibly can. As you might imagine, this includes a lot of the city's most expensive listings, including Capitol Hill's Sam Hill Mansion ($15M) and the recently-listed Webster Point mansion that comes in asking $14.8M. It's probably not surprising either to find a few old classics on Millionaire's Row that made the cut. That's just how they built'm back then. Believe it or not there's even a Downtown condo that made the cut, though it's an undeveloped floor that's been on the market for over nine years, so, don't get too excited.

Check out the map below and start wondering whether or not you could accumulate enough stuff to take up all that space.

814 E Highland Dr
Seattle, WA 98102

The Sam Hill Mansion, currently the most expensive listing in the entire city at $15M. This 11,000 square-foot residence recently got a bigtime makeover. With the help of Stuart Silk Architects, interior design from Garret Cord Werner Architects and Interior Designers and landscape design by Richard Hartledge, the 2016 version is a blend of old and new that tries not to let one overwhelm the other.

725 14th Ave E
Seattle, WA 98112

Back in 1905, architect W.W. Sabin designed the 10,416 square-foot Colonial Revival at 725 14th Avenue E in Capitol Hill for Reverend Edward Lincoln Smith. A few years later it was sold to David Skinner, he of the Skinner Building (home of Fifth Avenue Theater). Over the years it changed owners plenty more times and now it's going to change hands once more. Originally listed for $8.9M, they've dropped the price to $7.99M

5525 S Othello St
Seattle, WA 98118

If you want to get to 10,373 square-foot Lakehaven estate asking $7.98M, you've got two options: a gated, private road or from one of the three docks on it's 105-feet of Lake Washington waterfront. However you get there, you'll be greeted by a living experience that includes sophisticated Crestron and LiteTouch technology, which controls internal systems. HVAC, lighting, security and more.

715 2nd Ave
Seattle, WA 98104

3,390 days. That's a little more than nine years. That's how long this this 9,876 square-foot top floor Millenium Tower penthouse has been waiting for someone to come along and make it their own. Last sold in 2004 for $4M, this undeveloped space will run you $8M plus $5,693/month in HOAs if someone eventually decides to take it on.

6. 4911 NE Laurelcrest Lane

4911 NE Laurelcrest Ln
Seattle, WA 98105

The 7-BR, 6.25-bath waterfront Laurelhurst residence is 11,809 square-feet of living space, which includes an ADU as well. There's also 145-feet of Lake Washington waterfront that includes your dock and moorage because you will most certainly need that if you can afford this place. The standout shot inside is where the Fleetwood doors open up into the family room and keep going right on outside. It was listed for $13.25M but now they're all the way down to $9.99M.

7. 6238 Lake Shore Drive S

Seattle, WA 98118

When we first saw this 8,430 square-foot home in 2015, it was asking $6.5M. Since it's still available, you had to figure it's come down and now they're asking $5.1M. The Stephen Sullivan-designed Cap Cod cover a lot of ground and seems like it's made for families and/or grandchild visits. The furnished basement includes a game room, workout area and sauna while there's plenty of well-manicured greens outside with the pool.

8. 107 Dorffel Drive E

After 110 years, elegance and luxury remain. Some of the features were probably dated for a while, but they're back now. The 5 bedroom, 5 bath house clocks in at 7,852 square feet. It would be interesting to see if it started that way. Guessing the basketball court and home theater didn't quite look like that back then.

9. 3054 E Laurelhurst Drive NE

3054 E Laurelhurst Dr NE
Seattle, WA 98105

This 5-BR, 4.75-bath, 7,683 square-foot waterfront estate out on secluded Webster Point just hit the market asking $14,880,000. That makes it the second-priciest listing on the market in town. The 1928 residence was designed by noted architect Arthur Loveless. Webster Point is full of luxury, old-world homes designed by masters of the craft and demanding millions for ownership. This one might be the best of the whole bunch.

3035 Perkins Ln W
Seattle, WA 98199

In 2014, Macklemore cohort Ryan Lewis snapped up a four-bedroom, 3.75-bath, 7,610 square-foot home in Magnolia for $3.3 million. Turns out he doesn't have the "Same Love" for it now because he's put it back on the market, but this time he's asking $9.45 million. Come for the gold leaf ceilings, stay for the cool whiskey bar located downstairs.
