You know us, we love some crazy homes especially when those homes are matched with an equally crazy price tag. Luckily for us, Seattle has plenty of those. So we thought we’d take a look at what’s for sale in the city and really expensive. Because why not? It’s always fun to look right? These are the most expensive houses in Seattle right now.
To start, we all know that the housing market in Seattle is insane. For that reason, $1 to $2 million dollar homes feel pretty normal. So we thought we’d kick things up a notch and see what’s available in the $7 million-plus range. Turns out there are several homes as well as apartment buildings. Let’s get into it.
618 W Highland Dr
Starting at a low $7 million, this West Queen Anne estate is pretty dang spectacular. It was built in 1905 from plans by W. Marbury Somervell and has been impeccably restored. It boasts 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and over 8,000 square feet of space. Some of our favorite details have to be the original wood detailing, garden room, and Romeo and Juliet esc balcony in the master bedroom. Oh, and it’s been on the market for 347 days.
421 W Highland Dr
If the first home wasn’t for you, don’t worry for $7.5 million you can kind of be neighbors at this other West Queen Anne home. It too has some history as it was built for civic leader Albert S. Kerry. Now, this home has pretty clearly been updated throughout time so if you’re a real stickler for heritage it’s probably not for you. But it does have 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and over 5,000 square feet of space as well as a pool. If you’re wondering, it’s been on the market for only 8 days!
1214 Warren Ave N
Three houses in and we haven’t even left Queen Anne yet! This stately 9,970 sqft, 5 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms home was built in 1902 for Seafirst Bank founder W.J. Whitney and has a very dominating presence. In fact, it actually sits on the highest point of Queen Anne making the 3rd-floor entertaining area unlike any other in the city. You can enjoy a bar, dining area, sitting area, and a 210° panoramic view of the Space Needle, Puget Sound & Lake Union. This bad boy has been on the market for 243 days.
2033 1st Ave APT 3
Jumping over to Pike Place and up to $9.3 million this home is within one of the city’s most exclusive buildings. It’s 1 of only 7 residences in the sought-after Market Place Tower. You’ll have 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 4,542 sqft spread out over 2 levels right in the heart of downtown. As you might have guessed, the view is beyond spectacular. It has unobstructed views of Puget Sound, Elliott Bay, and the Olympics as well as 300 sqft of landscaped patio. This one has been on the market for 238 days and we hope it gets scooped up by the right owner.
Well, folks when it’s an undisclosed address you know it’s going to be pricey! This waterfront home on Lake Washington comes in at $10.95 million. But to back up that price it does have a 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom home at 6,230 sqft. Not to mention it also has over an acre of land and 2 parcels that sit on 240 feet of lakefront. It’s a classic late 60s one-level home that has been updated to reflect its price tag and has a great open floor plan with plenty of outdoor living spaces.
1634 Lake Washington Blvd
Jumping up to $14.25 million, this 7,170 sqft, 3 bedrooms 6 bathroom home is certainly unique. It has a classic mix of late 90s design with lots of windows, stone as well as wood. Some of its amenities include a wine cellar and elevator. But it also has a double parcel waterfront lot with manicured grounds as well as two private docks, and some stunning views of Lake Washington and the Cascades. It seems like it could be the ultimate party pad for someone with $14 million to blow.
What we said above, homes with no addresses are expensive and this one is no exception. But it is exceptional as it’s one of Seattle’s great estates, built in 1925. At 11,271 sqft, 6 bedrooms, and 10 bathrooms this home has all the grand rooms you could ever imagine, an indoor pool, a private dock, boathouse, and an exquisite waterfront backyard. Now this one has been updated throughout time but only to ensure it matches that $27.5 million price tag. Yea that price definitely burns.
From $7 million all the way up to $27 million, Seattle has it all. We’re sure there will be a few new ones to check out soon as Seattle’s housing market is still hot. So be sure to check these out while you can!
