Unique south-facing waterfront mansion is listed for $17 million
BELLEVUE, Wash. (April 19, 2019) – The Chairman & CEO of John L. Scott Real Estate, J. Lennox Scott and his wife Deanna are putting their Medina home on the market. The mansion is located in a secluded suburb of Seattle and Bellevue, Wash., home to numerous tech executives and billionaires.
The south-facing house was designed by Washington architect Vassos Demetriou, known for his custom residential work on a local, national and international scale. Due to its unique geographical placement and design, the 6,874 ASF home has unobstructed views of the Seattle and Bellevue skylines, Lake Washington and Mount Rainier.
The five-bedroom home’s interior and exterior are reminiscent of a Mediterranean / Tuscan villa, featuring many distinguishing touches imported from abroad. The interior of the home has been remodeled, with the interior decoration, design and vision coming from Deanna Scott, who is the author of the book Speaking the Language of Miracles. In her remodeling work, Deanna created an open floor plan, incorporated high-end accents and brought the Tuscan theme into the home.
“This is a one-of-a-kind home just minutes from all that Seattle and Bellevue have to offer,” said J. Lennox Scott. “Deanna and I have put great care into it over the years, and we know the next owner will love the usability of this oasis on Lake Washington. With the spring housing market heating up in the Seattle area, it’s an ideal time for us to put our home on the market as we go onto create our next masterpiece.”
Home highlights include an Italian chateau buff rock stone fireplace that rises to meet the two-story vaulted ceiling, a hand-carved Turkish limestone fireplace mantle, marble inset floors in the grand foyer, three layers of Venetian plaster walls and built-in storage throughout. The large chef’s kitchen has two full-height wine coolers recessed into a stone wall, a carved limestone stove hood imported from Turkey and massive granite “Picasso” counters imported from the Crazy Horse Quarry in Italy.
The manse has approximately 155 feet of no-bank Lake Washington waterfront easily accessible with an 85-foot long dock, allowing residents streamlined boating access to Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Renton and beyond. Other outdoor traits include outdoor speakers and overhead heaters, a fenced dog run, custom bird aviary and fire pit at the water’s edge. NanaWall glass door and window systems are installed throughout the house to enhance the home’s indoor / outdoor living potential.
The home will be shown through private viewings only. Interested parties in this Exceptional Homes by John L. Scott listing may contact the listing broker, Lan Nguyen, of John L. Scott’s Bellevue-Main office at LanNg@johnlscott.com. Additional property details can be found at MedinaWaterfrontEstate.com.
