Why build yet another house from horizontal and beige siding when you can go vertical and red? That’s what a custom builder created in 2004 with a 4,083 square-foot two story home in Redmond. That drama continues inside.
The price history on this 68-acre estate is a bit all over the place. After listing for $6.95M back in 2012, it went on and off the market at that price for a few years before coming down to $3.895M. Then it sells for $5.25M. Huh?

Mad Max: Fury Road. Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Labyrinth. If any of those movies sound like the kind of thing you'd like to watch under the stars while cozied up to someone on a picnic blanket, then you are most certainly in luck this summer.
When ST3 was unveiled, timelines like 2033 for West Seattle and 2038 for Ballard might have been better than nothing but still felt eons away. Thanks to new "financial assumptions," Sound Transit has bumped up some of their long-range deadlines.
As the informal rule goes, you shouldn't spend more than 28 percent of your gross income on your housing costs (mortgage, property taxes, etc.). That's easier said than done, especially in this housing market.
