Classic Denny Blaine Mansion Gets New Home On Bainbridge

The house at its original location at Denny Blaine Park

The house at its original location at Denny Blaine Park on Lake Washington

A mansion that has called Denny Blaine Park home since the 1923 has gotten a new address after almost a century – Bainbridge Island. The 400-ton brick home was loaded onto a barge on Wednesday evening and made an overnight journey through Lake Washington, the Ship Canal, and finally the Ballard Locks before arriving on Bainbridge on Thursday night. According to King 5, the home’s new owners, Mary Rain and her husband, stumbled across the property on the website for Nickels Brothers, a company that specializes in “recycled” homes and house moving, and purchased it for $850,000 – including delivery.

A Nickels Brothers spokesperson told King 5 that the home’s previous owners planned to build a new house on the Denny Blaine site, but did not want to see the historic home demolished. The sale to the Rain family allowed the home to be preserved, and the spokesperson said nearly 200 trees’ worth of wood was saved from the landfill.

Denny Blaine Real Estate: 3rd Quarter 2014

Washington Park SeattleDenny Blaine real estate, like the rest of the King County real estate market, is very strong.  Comparing closed homes sales in Denny Blaine for the 3rd quarter with the year before shows the increase in the market.  The number of home sales in Denny Blaine are low (due to the size of the neighborhood); thus the date is prone to fluctuation, but taken in context with the rest of the Seattle area market the numbers are consistent.  In both 2014 and 2013 in the 3rd quarter there was 6 sales, but in 2014 the average Denny Blaine sales price was over $1.7 million and $477 per square foot while in 2013 the average sales price was $1.1 million and $372 per square foot.  The number in September in King County and Seattle real estate market show similar trends.  The median price of a single-family home in King County in September was $460,000, almost 10 percent higher than a year ago and 5.3 percent higher than August’s median price.  According to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service, these stats indicate the best September for home prices in at least 10 years!
