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 grandiouse homes that take up as much space as they possibly can.
This 5-BR, 4.75-bath, 7,683 square-foot waterfront estate out on secluded Webster Point just hit the market asking $14.9M. That makes it the second-priciest listing on the market in town, trailing only the Sam Hill Mansion in Capitol Hill ($15M).
Tudor, porte cochere, mullion, merlons, somewhere along that list of words you can get the impression that this is a house with European manners. It's a 1921 Tudor Revival that's a memorial to an earlier era of conspicuous elegance.
Wondering how this year has been for the Seattle-area's real estate market? To find out, Curbed mapped the 10 most expensive single-family home residential sales that have occurred so far this year with prices ranging from $5.8M to $9.75M.
Cheap is a relative term, especially in some Seattle neighborhoods. Laurelhurst is one of them. If you can afford to buy a home for a $1M, that's not going to be enough. But if you can afford to go higher, we've found some "cheap" options for you.
As the housing market has taken off in recent years, the number of million-dollar homes has followed suit. Based on numbers from Trulia, the Seattle region is now among the ten fastest-growing markets when it comes to seven-figure home sales.
Inside the house you'll find plenty of original features including leaded windows, refinished hardwoods and coved ceilings. The remodeled kitchen has all the requisite stainless appliances and marble countertops.
As the weekend approaches, let's take a look around the Seattle real estate listings to find some examples of the strange, the weird and just the plain terrible. (Come across one we missed? Let us know...)
UW professor and FAIA Keith Kolb built the 5-BR, 2-bath residence at 3379 47th Avenue NE in 1960 for his family to live and it's remained in the family until now as it's on the open market for the first time, asking $1.395M.
Last week's biggest sales leads with one of Seattle's long-running luxury homes finally coming off the market, the Lionel Pries home in Webster Point. The other big sales came from Seattle's Stevens neighborhood and over in Clyde Hill.
The weather is starting to turn for the better and that means it's the perfect time to get out there and explore the nooks and crannies of Seattle. We've mapped out twelve tiny or hidden parks that often fly under the radar
