Mansions in Seattle

Even in discreet, pretention-phobic Seattle, you can still find a mega-mansion when you need one

One mega-mansion in Bellevue

The first time Seattle saw a house sell for more than $1 million was 30 years ago (in Shoreline’s Highlands neighborhood). We’ve come a long way. This February, a mansion in Bellevue hit the market with a $32.8 million price tag (it’s still available!). Of course, that’s nothing compared to real estate in New York City, where at least three cribs recently listed for more than $100 million each, or LA, where you can drop $30 million without batting an eyelash extension. But if you have piles of cash and a yen for living big in the Northwest, we can hook you up.
