You thought it was over, but oh no. It is not.
December 2007: $1,650,000 (Flipping?!?)
I kid you not. February’s buyers have now put this beast back on the market, at nearly 30% over what they paid for it just ten months ago, and $25,000 over the previous owner/builder’s original ridiculously high asking price last summer.
Just for laughs, here is the description in the MLS this time around:
Amazing NW Craftsman Lodge-style home. 3+private acres! Soaring high ceilings announce the entertainment size entry with Brazilian Cherry wood floors flowing into the formal dining room and beyond giving a spectacular entrance. A cozy library greets you, next to a living room/flex room. The Master Suite has a territorial view, fireplace,jetted-tub,and glass block shower. Seperate [sic] Nanny’s quarter’s and bedrooms +. This is a ‘must see’ and too wonderful for words. Come experience this grand home!
I can think of something to describe as “soaring high,” and it’s not the ceilings.
Good luck with this one, you’re going to need it. Badly.
