Now that he’s been traded to the Denver Broncos, with an annual haul of $24 million, Super Bowl-winning former Seattle Seahawks dual-threat quarterback Russell Wilson and mononym fashion model/R&B singer Ciara have tossed their blufftop Bellevue, Wash., mansion on the market with a spine-straightening price tag of $36 million.
The “Goodies” and “Speechless” singer, also a tireless entrepreneur and dedicated philanthropist, and Wilson, once the highest paid player in the NFL who pulled down about $35 million a year in his last years with the Seahawks, are looking to just about triple their money on the sale of their two-parcel waterfront estate. Records indicate the two parcels were acquired in two transactions several years apart, the first in 2015, the year before they were married, and the second in 2019, for a total outlay of $13.4 million.
Listings held by Carmen Gayton and Chandler Gayton, both of Windermere Real Estate Co., reveal the two parcels are also available separately; the parcel with the main house is asking $28 million, while the neighboring parcel, with a detached garage and sport court, has an $8 million price tag.
The two parcels together span almost 1.9 lushly landscaped acres that slope down to 270-feet of prime shoreline along Lake Washington. Set on a high point with panoramic water and city views, the flamboyantly embellished main house was built in 2007.
There are six bedrooms and five bathrooms plus a pair of powder rooms in a bit more than 11,000 square feet spread over three floors serviced by both a theatrical wrought iron accented circular staircase and an elevator.
