Salutes The Admiral’s House As It Launches On To The Market

While the Admiral’s House in Magnolia is not a Seattle houseboat, it does seem fitting that it should be featured on this blog at least as a tribute to the Navy’s long time presence in Seattle.  This beautiful Seattle historic mansion was built in 1944 to house the Admirals of the Navy that were stationed here and this Seattle home is in touch with the waters of Puget Sound almost as much as Seattle floating homes are in touch with Lake Union and Portage Bay.  All of these properties together have a rich history that makes up the very threads of the city we live in and love. So without further delay, I want to  present the Admiral’s House to you (listed by Cooper Jacobs Real Estate):


Welcome home to one of the most  exceptional estates in Seattle with arguably the best views in the city.

If you know the sights around Magnolia, WA then this scene should be familiar.

This property is featured in the special holiday edition of Luxury Home Magazine for December/January 2013.

The distinctive Admiral’s House is a stunning combination of notable architecture, remarkable history, and unparalleled location. Situated on 3.89 acres above Smith Cove, this unique 7316 square foot eight bedroom residence takes in unobstructed Southwest views of Downtown Seattle and the Puget Sound as no other home in Seattle can.

 This premier three story gated estate has enjoyed an extensive and refined history as housing for the Admirals of the Navy since World War II.  Many highly esteemed government officials and foreign dignitaries have frequented it and cemented its historical significance. In fact, Quarters A, as it was called by the Navy, is designated as a City of Seattle landmark and nominated for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Admiral’s House was reviewed in the Seattle Post Intellegencer.
