Matthew Hasselbeck, a quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts (and former Seahawk), just sold his home in Bellevue for $3.1 million. Matthew and his wife, Sarah, listed it on the MLS May 21 for $3,495,000, which means it sold in only eight days, for $395,000 under the asking price. It’s a sign of the times; many homes are selling in just a few days, as Redfin recently reported.
The 6,340 square foot home comes with four bedrooms and 4.5 baths. It sits above Meydenbauer Bay, with beautiful views of the water. The home includes a theater room, home gym (of course!), video surveillance system, and a terraced patio and lawn. It is located near Medina, home of Bill Gates and other Microsoft executives. Redfin Agent Diane Spera toured the home, and left the following Redfin Tour Insight:
“The home is very well appointed. The gate at the front opens to a large paved driveway and a four car garage. A formal entry opens to the living room, with a view of the lake. A formal dining room is next to it. There’s a large kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a large center island. The kitchen opens to a family room and another large dining area. The master bedroom is on the main level and has its own deck overlooking the lake. There’s also an office/den on the main level. There are three bedrooms upstairs, each with its own bathroom. The lower level has a bonus room and another bedroom and bathroom. The large backyard feels very private.”
Hasselbeck left the Seahawks in 2011, to sign on with the Tennessee Titans. He listed his home under a pocket listing in August 2012, but couldn’t find a buyer. On March 19 of this year he signed with the Indianapolis Colts. Shortly thereafter he listed his home on the MLS, which resulted in the quick sale. With the sale, he’ll cut all ties to Seattle, though he may still vacation at his home on Lake Chelan.
