While some Seattleites are paying $750 a month to squeeze into a 130 square foot studio with a toilet in the same room as your bed, others are living large on palatial estates. The price of land is expensive in Seattle, and developers are unlikely to build new massive single-family homes in a market that favors mixed-use luxury condominiums. But some large homes remain. Here are five homes for sale in Seattle that offer more than 5,000 square feet of sumptuous living space.
