Last weekend, Realogics Sotheby's International Realty, debuted "The Ellicott," one of Fort Lawton's largest estates, to the public.
In less than a week the meticulously refurbished and modernized $2.8 million Magnolia estate received multiple offers, and is now pending! An offer was put on it only two days after the home was debuted at the open house.
The home plan is named after Anna Ellicott, one of Seattle’s early pioneers, whose land donation contributed to the formation of Fort Lawton in 1900. Located at 4012 Washington Avenue West (in Discovery Park), the Ellicott is sited upon a .39-acre lot overlooking the historic Parade Grounds with a massive wraparound covered veranda offering unobstructed views of the Olympic Mountain range and Puget Sound, just as it has for more than a century.
“The Ellicott is one of the Grand Dames of Fort Lawton and it presents a truly unique opportunity to own legacy real estate in Seattle,” said Gary Blakeslee, Vice President of Rise Properties.
“This opportunity for homeownership is like no other on the West Coast – a poignancy that is not lost on us with the unfortunate fire in one of our empty, unoccupied homes that was under renovation,” added Blakeslee. “We will rebuild but it certainly makes today’s scheduled release bittersweet.”
Blakeslee believes all eleven remaining homes will be fully renovated and sold this year. Four out of the six homes on the south side have already been sold. 4012 Washington Avenue is the first Ellicott to be listed for sale. The north side has seven homes of which two are nearly completed and three will be completed in late November and December (two out of the seven are now delayed by the fire damage).
