Bachelor entrepreneur Leo Gontmakher is selling his 10,000-square-foot modern manse in coveted Yarrow Point for $6.99 million. He bought the property in 2012 and finished the striking custom house in 2014. Gontmakher says he finds that his increased international travel schedule means he is living out of the area and not using the house he loves so much, and so he is selling it.
Windermere’s Karl Lindor and John Kritsonis have the listing for this four-bedroom, six-bathroom neoteric home, with its dramatic west-facing views of Lake Washington. It is the ultimate in contemporary, high-end luxury living, its clean, crisp lines warmed up by soft textures.
Lindor describes the gourmet kitchen as fit for the most discerning chef, with sleek rare granite surfaces, Miele appliances and a walk-in pantry. It is, he says, an ideal venue for hosting extravagant occasions and yet a stylish haven from the bustle of city living. Resort-class amenities include smart home controls, large gym, media room with wet bar, sport court and a second kitchen. Gontmakher’s favorite aspects of his home are “the functionality and ease of use. How everything is in the right place. All the electronics are totally seamless. I love that,” he says. “There are spacious huge rooms with a large entertainment area which is one of the things I like most. And the home gym, that’s a nice man cave.”
He loves the theater downstairs and the master suite. “It’s fabulous,” he says. “And the gigantic master bathroom is all done in white Carrara white marble.” He also is drawn to the enormous balcony and the sauna, steam shower and hot tub area. He imagines this home will appeal to a family that loves the modern look or someone who is into athletics – “a big sports guy or potentially an athlete,” he says, echoing his own love for athletics and sports of all kinds.
