Unique Luxury Homes in the Northwest

From a Vista in Seattle with 180-degree views of the Puget Sound, to an impressive Lake Chelan Italian Villa; luxury is truly defined in these unique Northwest homes. Whether or not you are in the market to purchase a dream home, we can all still peruse these spacious structures and think, “what if?”

One of my favorite properties is the remodeled vista with million dollar views of the sound. The vista is described as having an amazing cookery kitchen with impressive views and a surreal backdrop. My husband does most of the cooking at home, what a treat it would be for him to prepare our family meals in such awe inspiring space. This sensational vista is priced to sell at just over 1 million dollars.

The next unique luxury home that I just absolutely had to share is located in Lake Chelan, Washington. The summers are perfect, the winters are romantic - the Italian Villa opens it’s doors to luxe travelers year round. This villa has many charming features and amenities. Besides being lake front, the villa offers a distinguished infinity pool. This is a hot property during peak tourism months in Lake Chelan, so if a vacation at the Villa is beckoning you, book fast. Welcome to Villa Florenza!

Luxurious Seattle condos provide perfect setting for bestselling book, “50 Shades of Grey”!

I’ve unfortunately succumbed to the world of the Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m talking ADDICTED! Just like I was completely sucked into Twilight (no pun intended), I can’t get enough of this book. This book takes place in Seattle (of course), and the lead character, Christian Grey lives at the Escala.

If you’ve never heard of it, the Escala are luxury condos located in Belltown, and they are simply amazing.

They even have a private yoga studio in their onsite gym. Base models begin around $400,000… and the penthouses go for anywhere around $4-$6 million. I thought this was amazing too: each apartment includes a private “vestibule” leading to the front door, guaranteeing the homeowner’s privacy. Check out all the rest of the details in this article from The Bottom Line on MSN!
