Bruce McCaw’s Northwest property hits the market at a record price
Bruce and Joleen McCaw are looking to make big money from their Seattle-area property.
The telecom tycoon and his wife have listed their properties in Hunts Point. The Puget Sound Business Journal reports that the $85 million listing is the most expensive in the history of the Northwest multiple listing service.
Windermere Brokers Anna Riley and Dennis Niles have the list.
The gated property sits on over four acres and includes 327 feet of waterfront. The pier was designed by Bruce himself and can accommodate a 150-foot yacht, other boats, jet-skis, and a seaplane.
The sandstone and glass house spans over 17,000 square feet and includes five bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. Despite its size, the features inside the house are relatively simple, including a library, game room, two offices, and a gym.
The property also has a beach house, a staff house, and a pool cabin.
McGraw said the house was ready for another family after 14 years of supervision. He was closely acquainted with the previous owner of the property when he bought the property – his brother Craig. Before Craig McCaw, the house was owned by saxophonist Kenny J.
Bruce is the co-founder of McCaw Cellular Communications and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Seattle Hotel Group. He has also held positions at the Museum of Flight, Horizon Airlines, and the Alaska Air Group.
He and Joleen also serve as directors of the Apex Foundation.
Although nothing can compare to the historical listing price of Hunts Point property, there have been some notable luxury listings in the Seattle area lately. A few months ago, NFL quarterback Russell Wilson and his musician wife Ciara put the massive 11,000-square-foot Bellevue mansion on the market for $28 million. This list followed Wilson’s trade from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos.
