A Hillside Palace Sitting High Above Seattle's Capitol Hill Neighborhood

Location: Seattle, Washington

Price: $11,200,000

Seattle might be more commonly associated with flannel-clad grunge rockers than bow-tied blue bloods, but if this estate in the Capitol Hill neighborhood is anything to go on, there's a more straight-laced side to the city. Built in 1912 to a design by architect Carl Gould, the five-bedroom, 8.5-bath mansion boasts seven fireplaces, two offices, an elevator, a terraced lawn, stone patio, and dazzling water views. The $11,200,000 estate measures 12,000 square feet and has fantastically detailed interiors that somehow manage to be understated, at least considering the high price tag.
