When you think of a mansion, pictures of a massive house on an expansive piece of land might come to mind. Maybe you think of a vacation setting or a smart house equipped with the latest technology.
With all of Seattle's high-rise apartments and condos, it's hard to imagine a mansion anywhere near the city. Yet, there is a gorgeous property perched atop the Queen Anne neighborhood that is vacant and for sale.
Rarely will you find a combination of luxury and comfort like this mansion that's nearly 10,000 square feet and overlooks Puget Sound and Lake Union. Here you'll feel like you're living in a fairytale, but you'll also feel completely at home.
A nostalgic vibe carries throughout the mansion, which was originally built in the early 1900s. The windows that adorn every side of this home have watched as Seattle has transformed from a relatively flat city to the eye-catching skyline you see today. Candelabra light fixtures on the inside and lanterns on the outside combine with marbled and wood flooring to give the home a historic but modern look.
Wood accents and crown molding on the clean white walls open up the large space even more than it already is, while the pure white exterior welcomes guests from beyond the gated entryways.
As you move through the mansion, you'll find five bedrooms, including a suite on the third floor that provides a 210-degree view of the surrounding mountains and Puget Sound. Natural light pours in from the massive windows to brighten the home and allow you to take in the majesty of the Pacific Northwest.
Amenities include an eight-seat theater room, a home gym, and a billiards room. If you do venture outdoors, you're close to downtown Seattle and the waterfront, but far enough away peacefully enjoy your life in this luxurious mansion.
