Posted by Nate Pearson — January 13, 2011
Monday, January 3, 2011 - The 10,000 square foot former residence of professional basketball player Ray Allen is available for purchase in the Blakely Woods neighborhood of the Sammamish Plateau. This northwest-style Craftsman estate welcomes you with a gated entry, circular drive and grand vaulted entryway with box beam ceiling and chandelier, providing an introduction to the luxury within.
Once with the Seattle Super Sonics and presently playing for the championship-series bound Boston Celtics, Allen made several customizations to this former Street of Dreams award-winning home including the addition of an elaborate master suite. It features a double-sided fireplace, attached office/nursery, two room-sized walk-in closets fully outfitted with built-in closet systems, and a travertine-tiled spa bathroom with free-standing jetted soaking tub, walk-through double-headed shower, separate water closet and two complete vanities.
Throughout the home the Allen’s custom interior design selections are intact including silk draperies, wallpaper, paint and carpeting. The gourmet kitchen, which was completely remodeled with new Viking appliances, has every luxury a home chef could desire.
Overall the home features five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, six fireplaces, garage parking for six cars, formal living and dining, three family rooms, mud room, two laundry rooms and a generator to keep the power on in stormy weather. Custom touches include the handsome wood-paneled office with built-in desk and shelving, a yoga/pilates room with rubber-mat flooring and a full-height mirror, and an eight-seat private screening room with surround sound and wet bar.
Resort-style amenities on this shy 4.5 acre lushly landscaped lot include a putting green, full size basketball/tennis court, children’s play house, hot tub, and swimming pool with covered outdoor living room complete with Viking outdoor appliances.
This home is located on a quiet residential street in the upscale community of Blakely Woods, located just a stone’s throw from Alderra Estates on the Sammamish Plateau. Open by appointment only, this home is available for purchase at $3,700,000.
