1930s Olmsted Colonial, Seattle, Washington


Offered at $4,500,000

Invoking stirring memories and murmurs of appreciation from its many notable guests over the years, the strikingly beautiful Seattle estate is revered for the splendid synergy of its architecture and setting. Breathtaking scenes of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains are staged to perfection  both from the commanding white Colonial and also from its treasured gardens—which were creatively conceived by the legendary Olmsted Firm in the early 1930s and are still acclaimed as extraordinary. Among the unforgettable settings are an extravagant stairhall and reception salon bursting with 1920s glamour, a red Regency dining room, a garden-green morning room, and a romantic Southern Colonial master suite with mantled fireplace. Considered the most beautiful Colonial on the West Coast by film scouts in Los Angeles, the Puget Sound estate was chosen to be the dramatic backdrop for a film on the Kennedys. It also hosted a large benefit for over 250 guests, who were seated for dinner under a tent on the lawns. Smaller gatherings of 75 reign in the reception foyer. The majestic dining room comfortably seats 48.
