View as Map

Rental prices have been the talk of Seattle all year long but lets not forget that even though it might not hold a candle to San Francisco or New York City, Seattle is home to some seriously high-priced homes for sale as well. While you might figure that most of the city's most pricey real estate runs up and down Lake Washington (and you'd be right), you might be surprised to know that some of the city's top-dollar digs also reside in Queen Anne, Mt. Baker, Leschi and Broadview. We've compiled the city's 25 most expensive listings as of this very moment so you can look for yourself. Keep an eye out for works by notable architects such as Tom Kundig, Lionel Pries and George Suyama. As for the rest, well, they're not that shabby either...
