Broadmoor, Estate of the Day
Today's estate is located in Broadmoor, a gated community in Seattle which is bounded on one side by the Washington Park Arboretum. Broadmoor was developed in the 1920s on land that had been logged by the Puget Mill Company. The parcel of land was split in two, one half went to the city, which created Washington Park and the other side of the was developed into Broadmoor and its golf course. This home was built in 1930 and is a grand vintage home. Details include a large stairhall with vintage tiles and a cozy office with a castle-like dream of a fireplace. Beamed ceilings, leaded glass details, vintage fireplaces and built-in bookshelves add to the appeal. The kitchen has an Aga range that looks out onto a family room with a window seat. The brick exterior includes carved stone arches, copper downspouts and gutters. It is listed at $5.8 million.
