Magnificent estate on millionaire?s row! This spectacular home, built in 1999, is located on the prestigious SW slope of Seattle?s Queen Anne hill and features nearly 6000 square feet of beautiful living space. Set back off the quiet, residential street, the home has an impressive entrance through a winding walkway past a very large yard which has been meticulously landscaped and features a full sprinkler system. The stately formal entry has soaring ceilings and is open to the living room with gas fireplace, the formal dining room which can seat twenty dinner guests with ease, and straight through to the cozy seating area with entertainment wall and second gas fireplace all open to the kitchen. And this kitchen is exceptional! Restaurant-sized, there is room for several chefs to prepare their dishes on the solid, granite cooking island, with gas range, that is nearly twenty feet long, and also features a salad sink with disposal. Additional features include Kitchen Aide double ovens, walk-in pantry, loads of cabinets, built-in microwave, trash compactor, dishwasher and message center with high speed internet connection. There is a handsome breakfast room off the kitchen which is open to a large, view deck. Oh, yes, the view. Absolutely sweeping SW views of the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound, Alki Point and several islands can be seen from both levels and with no wires impeding the view. Completing this level is a spacious powder room, laundry room and large family room with second powder room which would be a perfect kid?s play room, home theatre and/or office. The elegant open staircase leads to the second floor landing which is open to the entry below and features five bedrooms and two master suites, both exposed to the exceptional views, and three, three-quarter baths. The master suite is gorgeous with travertine tile, jacuzzi tub and double sinks, all opening onto the views. All bedrooms are very generous in size and have custom plantation shutters on the numerous large windows. The lower level is actually at ground level and is finished with workout room, powder room and huge storage area which also contains two water heaters and all electrical and plumbing hubs. This home has three furnaces so it is always comfortable in the winter and has central air for the warmer summer months. There is an attached double garage which enters onto the first floor near the kitchen and an extra covered carport for convenient parking. If space is what you need in your private residence, this home will not disappoint. Completely turnkey throughout, and in the best location on the Hill, it will provide years of pleasure and memories for the next lucky owner.
