While waterfront home sales on the Eastside weren't as brisk in March as they were in Seattle, we did see a significant handful of sales that give a picture of the current waterfront market. Overall, we're seeing an improving market in terms of total sales of waterfront homes, but significant discounts in final sale prices.

Hunts Point WA Waterfront Home

4014 Hunts Point Rd, Hunts Point WA 98004
This is a beautiful piece of property with a very traditional feel. The 1+ acre of land provides plenty of privacy for the 4700 square foot home with 86 feet of waterfront. The moorage can accomodate a large yacht and float plane, while the 7 car garage leaves plenty of space for a collector. This home was on the market for 10 months, with a fixed list price of $8.8 million. The final sale price was $7.95 million.

4344 Hunts Point Rd, Hunts Point WA 98004
This one was a real surprise. The French manor near the tip of Hunts Point was only on the market for a month and a half. Its list price was $15.8 million, and while the ultra-luxury market has seen some steep discounts, the $11.28 million sale price was a very substantial reduction. This 8300 square foot home has 5 beds, 6.5 baths, and 157 feet of waterfront. The 52,000 sq ft lot is one of the better pieces of property in greater Seattle.
