New On Market: Iconic Seattle Penthouse

By RSIR Staff |

Magic happens when the rarest of opportunities present themselves. This is your chance to own an iconic Seattle penthouse.

This stunningly beautiful home was taken down to the studs and lovingly reimagined, creating one expansive living space that encompasses the entire top floor of the building. Sweeping views of the Seattle skyline, Space Needle, Puget Sound, and the Cascade and Olympic Mountains will render you speechless. This is arguably one of the most breathtaking views in Seattle.

Ideally located on Queen Anne Hill, 111 W Highland Drive is one of the finest boutique buildings in the city. Sited on a charming tree-lined street, adjacent to Kerry Park, it is perched above downtown Seattle. Quaint neighborhood shops, restaurants, and parks are blocks away.

Senses awaken as you step through double Walnut doors and into the dramatic entry. Polished black concrete floors reflect light and mirror images of custom art, outdoor vistas, and natural light.

Sleek modern surfaces and design are expertly paired with warm rich woods and cabinetry. Floor-to-ceiling windows stretch across nearly the entire south side of the home, offering achingly beautiful 300-degree views.

Artfully designed grand kitchen features custom Indian rosewood cabinets, black honed granite counters, Wolf cooktop and warming drawer, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, 2 Miele dishwashers and ovens, and a large prep island. Lovely informal dining and sitting areas overlooking the entire city.

Two sets of sliding doors to a super private deck. Plenty of room for outdoor dining or watching the ever-changing light dance across the Sound and city skyline.

Elegant formal dining room with exquisite crystal chandelier and custom exotic Mozambique built-in cabinet and buffet.

Huge primary suite with Rift Oak wood built-in shelves and cabinets, hand-crafted bed, gas fireplace, intimate sitting area for two, luxurious bath with large soaking jacuzzi-type tub, and one-of-a-kind granite double shower. Two sets of vanities and views that rival postcards. Enviable showroom closets with top-of-the-line black walnut cabinets and lighted glass doors. Jewel-like Swarovski crystal knobs and pulls. Unique Swarovski sconces and crystal chandeliers. There is a customized water filtration and purification system that eliminates toxins, heavy minerals, and impurities. Spa treatment at home!

Two large en-suite guest bedrooms. One is climate controlled with Acacia flooring and is currently used as a gym. Two sweet balconies with northern views of Queen Anne.

Etched glass barn doors open to a large den with office space, sitting area with custom Walnut cabinetry, steel shelving, built-ins, and cozy gas fireplace. Western views. There is a second den/office featuring exotic Mozambique cabinets and shelving. Northern Queen Anne views.

Spacious family/media room with a combination of Fumed Rift wood and bleached Rift Oak wood wall-to-wall built-ins, along with surround sound. Plenty of room to watch movies, play cards, and relax.

There are two sweetly designed powder rooms, each with Venetian plaster paint and Walnut Burl vanities.

Large walk-in pantry with washer and dryer.

Additional laundry room.

4 secure parking spaces.

Building amenities include on-site management, rec room, view deck, gym space, 2 climate-controlled wine storage spaces, and 2 storage spaces.

No expense was spared in this complete remodel. All systems and surfaces were replaced using the finest and sometimes rarest of materials and the highest level of equipment. Extraordinary craftsmanship throughout. All of the concrete floors are heated, and each room has its own unit for heat and air conditioning (except the 2 powder rooms). There is a private heat pump on the roof for air and heat. Sophisticated lighting system throughout. All doors are Black Walnut. Each room features exquisite built-in custom wood cabinetry and shelving.

Hard to find a 5,300+ square foot one-level penthouse living with 3 bedrooms, 5 baths, family/media room, plus two dens. This home is for those with the most discerning taste, who crave privacy and yearn for an unrivaled setting, with top-of-the-world views and amazing sunsets.

Truly living in the clouds!
