Notable perks that come with this designated Seattle landmark, in no particular order: breathtakingly restored circa-1892 features, a spiffy green-and-orange color scheme that continues throughout, a cabana-covered hot tub, a pair of demons from hell protecting the front steps. Curbed Seattle caught wind of the four-bedroom Victorian and its delightful fell bouncers getting hefted onto the market with a $2.962M ask, and it's hard to find anything amiss with the place; the woodwork is gorgeous (those scrolled brackets!), at least some of the original stained glass is intact, and the patterns running through the scalloped-shingle siding are oh-so-right. Designed by Thomas G. Bird, the 5,350-square-foot home was given an utterly sinful hacienda-inspired coat of stucco by some previous owners, which was blessedly removed in 1994. Last sold that year for $767K, the Charles R. Bussell Residence also boasts a glass-enclosed marble shower and "unparalleled panoramic views of Lake Washington, Bellevue & the Cascades." In addition, of course, to the cutest pair of hellspawn around.
