For sale: $13,500,000. Situated to ensure the utmost privacy on Seattle's Magnolia Boulevard, this magnificent Tudor revival enjoys unrivaled views and grandeur. Soak in the Sound and Olympic Mountains from nearly every room. Sprawling outdoor patios and a view gazebo provide plentiful opportunities to enjoy sunshine and sea views. A personal custom NikeGrind(tm) putting green - so picturesque it was once featured in promotional materials for the U.S. Open in Chambers Bay - offers ample opportunities for both panoramic views and recreation. Designed by George Wallace Stoddard and built in 1929 for Seattle Star editor H.W. Parish, the 7,130 square foot, 4-bed, 6-bath home radiates the charm and elegance of the time, with original hand-hewn timbers and leaded glass windows. Rare and elegant features include a Waterford crystal chandelier, brought over from Hong Kong, and assembled by hand. Lovingly maintained and in impeccable condition, the home includes four fireplaces, an expansive master suite with his-and-hers closets and baths, and a carriage house complete with a separate 1-bedroom apartment. It has been enhanced with modern amenities including a new slate roof, updated electrical and plumbing systems, and air conditioning. Expansive and lush, the professionally designed grounds and gardens were reimagined and reinvigorated in 2010. Evergreen elements, ornamental grasses, golden-leaf smoke trees and spirea layer the landscape with texture and color. A pink saucer magnolia and one-of-a-kind 2-ton polished stone of Chinese jade and marble (brought in from China's Yangtze River Valley) welcome you to this established estate situated on a sizable 45,302 square foot parcel. Imbued with history, this stately and private retreat is prime to build your legacy.
