Possible Property “Heist”: Did Macklemore Snag Seattle Home for $2.153 Million?

According to real estate blog Urbnlivn, it’s possible that Ben Haggerty, better known as Macklemore, may have purchased a $2.153 million home in Seattle. The mystery mansion in question was bought back in November, under the suspicious “Gwendolyn Lucky Properties LLC.” The buyer’s agent is staying mum on the details!

If Macklemore did in fact buy this not-so-humble Capitol Hill property, he is enjoying quite the view, which includes Seattle’s infamous Space Needle, the Olympic Mountains and sunsets over the Puget Sound (if it’s not too cloudy to see). The 2,920-square-foot home has three bedrooms, 2.25 bathrooms, high ceilings and marble fireplaces. The master suite boasts a marble bathtub, separate shower and a walk-in dressing room.

The listing photos show an exterior spiral staircase leading to the roof deck, and floor-to-ceiling windows. It is certainly a far cry from any thrift shop setting the artist is so fond of singing about, but it does look like a great place to entertain his buddy Ryan Lewis, and is perfect for some quality time with his fiancée, Tricia Davis.

Ryan Lewis is also enjoying a sweet new spot; he purchased a northwest Seattle estate on January 31 for $3.3 million. The Grammy award-winning producer scooped up the home at a bargain compared with the property’s 2005 list price: a wallet-emptying $8.9 million. Maybe they can have joint housewarming parties!

Does this look like a place Macklemore would inhabit?
