For a tantalizing few moments earlier this week, the condo that inspired Christian Grey’s home in the Fifty Shades Trilogy was on the market for $8.8 million — and it’s every bit as dazzling as the Hollywood version.
You can almost picture Anastasia Steele slipping into something darker in the Seattle penthouse’s master suite and taking in the 280-degree views from the Space Needle across Puget Sound to the Olympic Mountains.
For maximum exposure, the home boasts floor-to-ceiling windows in almost every room, including beside the sleekly designed soaking tub.
A deal was whipped together in one day for the 5,170-square-foot penthouse, whose listing agent is Scott Wasner, founding director of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty.
“Fifty Shades” author E.L. James visited the 3-bedroom, 4-bath penthouse when she was in Seattle several years ago, and told the owners that online listing photos of their condo had inspired Grey’s home. She added special touches, like the helipad and the infamous red room.
