This is not only the former estate of Steve Miller (from the Steve Miller Band) but it is also right next door to one of the most important entrepreneurs to ever live. This home is an immediate neighbor of the famous Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and all around general bad-ass when it comes to technology! The opportunity of a lifetime here, people you need to jump on this hot property being called “Beverly Hills meets Palm Springs” from listing agent Michael Bauer. The 5,000 square foot home actually has quite a history besides being next door to Jeff Bezos. The land was part of the James Garfield Eddy estate, a prominent Seattle businessman and is located in an affluent neighborhood in Medina, Washington.
According the the Pugent Sound Business Journal: “A Medina manse, on the market for $6.2 million, at one time belonged to classic rocker Steve Miller. Miller, named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month, sold the house in 1982 to the late philanthropist and major arts supporter Elizabeth Blakeney, whose estate is selling it now. Ms. Blakeney died in June 2015 at the age of 94… There’s a three-car garage, a garden shed and a 1,400 square-foot basement. The landscaping is beautifully groomed and well established, and features waterfalls spilling into a small reflecting pond. A heated in-ground swimming pool and 400 square-foot pool house, both part of the Blakeney property, were a major draw for the family.”
