In 2011, former Starbucks CEO Orin Smith—who also serves on the boards of Nike and Disney—sold off this stately brick mansion in Seattle's Broadmoor neighborhood for $4.7M. Now the 7,500-square-foot beauty is back on the market, but with a lower asking price of $4.25M. The reason for the short sale isn't immediately clear—Smith sold it to an LLC—but it attracted some serious buyer interest and is now in contract after just six days on the market. That's not all, but the current owners are losing thousands more on a pricey renovation that upgraded the kitchen and refinished much of the house. The four-bedroom, four-bath Georgian does boast a litany of luxury features, like a "den, library, 3 fireplaces ... gym, game room, third floor play room, wine cellar," and a home theater—currently featuring Star Wars.
