We were lucky to experience a classically fall day for the Northshire Brokers Open this past Wednesday. Guests enjoyed the various attributes of this Seattle Estate as they explored the beautiful grounds. We’ve included event comments from top agents in the Seattle area below:
“I thought the house was nothing short of incredible, especially set in the concrete jungle of Seattle. This is the kind of place you’d normally expect to find in rural communities east of King/Pierce and south of Thurston Counties – on the outside. On the inside, we felt as though we’d gone back in time walking through it, and couldn’t believe that you could live so close to Seattle and still have horses, animals, a guest house and sports court. That seemed more like something to be found in New England.” – Paul Edwards
“We love the estate and the attention to detail in the manor house, carriage house, guest house and barn. We are excited to have learned more about this property!” – Muna Muraisi and Erica Topel, Windermere
“I want to immediately send a press package over to my clients in China.” – Lili Shang, Broker at RSIR
“I feel so inspired; please find us a great neighbor!” – New Neighbors Brian & April Kelly, with 3 year old and 6 month old.
“An amazing property and the open house was exceptional. The staging and presentation was excellent as well.” – Barry Bergner, Broker at RSIR
“I have to say the staging was magic and you all did beautifully on the function, of course the weather was perfect and the food amazing. I see this property as being perfect for a B&B if allowed in the neighborhood or of course for an equestrian family who loves being close to the city. The property is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity with the value in the privacy of the land.” – Angela Pepka, Broker at RSIR

About the Estate
2.3 acres of Olmsted-designed grounds define this gracious and utterly unique urban estate and provide context for all of its exquisitely restored and newly built structures. Bordering the acclaimed Dunn Gardens, the Northshire Estate represents a magical coalescence of meticulous restoration, carefully edited historic beauty and confidently bold design to create a singular enclave that celebrates its richly genteel rural heritage while anticipating the future with thoroughly modern systems and conveniences, wrapped in exceptional levels of craftsmanship.
Seattle Northshire Estate is a masterpiece of site integration with layers of architecture and landscape that gently guide visitors along groomed walking paths from the gated entry past a newly constructed 5 stall horse stable and training area, to a restored guest cottage and Carl Gould-designed carriage house, then on to a manor home that is the epitome of classic grace and elegance. Mature fruit trees and hedgerows part to afford painterly vistas of the surrounding nature, while a sport court and rolling lawns provide ample space for outdoor recreation and relaxation. True to its roots as a farm, the property also features a fenced vegetable garden, all within a 7 mile drive of downtown Seattle, and surrounded by the elegant Broadview neighborhood and all of its local conveniences.
