This waterfront mansion in Seattle was built in the 1920s

overlooking Lake Washington, this classic waterfront estate in Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood harks back to the best of the Roaring Twenties in a city known for its laid-back modernity.

“This is one of the trophy homes in all of Laurelhurst,” said listing agent Terry Allen of Coldwell Banker Bain of the property.

Designed by noted Seattle architect Arthur Loveless in the late 1920s, the classic Tudor home’s exterior is a tasteful combination of striking gables, multi-toned shingles and deep red brick accentuated by perfectly manicured foliage and a lush green lawn.

The home’s stone archway graciously greets visitors into a tasteful interior: Luxurious tile and vibrant wood below, subtle colours and wood-panelling on the sides, exposed wood beams and remarkable chandeliers above. As one might expect of such a luxurious estate,  built in the early 20th century for a prominent Seattle banking family, the home features an oversized living and dining room ideal for entertaining, in addition to a ballroom with a 5.4m ceiling on the lower level.

Keeping the home’s original period in mind, the present owners have made recent seamless additions that blend with the estate’s historical style.

The 713 sqm lakeside home features five bedrooms and four full bathrooms.

The property is rich in amenities that utilise its large outdoor space to maximum effect. In addition to the home’s many oversized rooms, the property also includes an outdoor athletic court and 53m of scenic Lake Washington shoreline, complete with a private swimming cove and dock outfitted with two boat lifts and enough space for a yacht or seaplane.

With a gorgeous view of the lake and surrounding Cascade Mountains, the property is a true waterside gem.

Conveniently located near the University of Washington and Husky Stadium, the neighbourhood has also been home to some of Seattle’s most famous and prominent citizens.

Tech mogul Bill Gates, “The Far Side” creator Gary Larson and actors Antonio Band eras and Melanie Griffith have all once called Laurelhurst home.
