A waterfront mini estate in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood is going for $3.79M

This property, billed in its official listing as a “utopian waterfront compound,” offers two separate dwellings at one address. 2845 Perkins Lane West is for sale now in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood, offering a mini waterfront estate for $3.788 million. 

With both a main four-bedroom home and a one-bedroom carriage house sitting on 1.14 acres of waterfront land in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood, the property at 2845 Perkins Lane West is a mini estate — one that offers a wide swath of space and sensational views. And yet, downtown Seattle is just a 20-minute drive away.

This unique mini estate is currently on the market for $3.79 million.  

The living room offers a huge window and deck for taking in the stunning views. 

The home was built in 1927, with whimsical curves and peaks that — according to the official listing — were “European inspired.”

Interior spaces are classical looking, though the home has been modernized in its century of life. 

The place is billed as a “one-of-a-kind home” with abundant “old-world charm.” That charm is intact, both in the exterior’s stucco and wood, as well as in its interior hardwoods, doorways, window frames, leaded glass and balconies. 

The formal dining room is warmed by a fireplace. 

Decks and balconies abound, all looking west over the Puget Sound. 

But the home has also been modernized during the last 100 years.

In the main house, the kitchen has been fully remodeled for today’s chef, and the upper-floor primary suite, which offers sweeping water and mountain views under a dramatic cathedral ceiling, has a gas fireplace and walk-in closet. On the lower level of the main home, a recreation room — which also has a gas fireplace — opens out to a private, covered deck. 

The basement level of the main home opens to the large property, which in turn leads to the water’s edge.

Across the walkway that joins the two buildings is the property’s one-bedroom carriage house, which also features these postcard-ready views from its windows and deck. Below this apartment is a four-car garage. 

The carriage house is connected to the main house, offering a fully equipped unit above a four-car garage. 

The carriage house has an open floor plan and offers the same endless vistas as the main house. 

The landscape is terrace, garden and lawn, all of which roll gently toward the water’s edge. There, a bulkhead, buoy and boat lift await. 

The Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains are the closest neighbors to the west.
