This Faben Point Mansion sold in October for $6.8 million. Last year when my book was published it was listed for $8.8 million. The sellers were William K. and Mary E. Buckley. The buyer was Lars Karlsson Edenkrans, a prominent clothing industry CEO from Sweden.

The photograph above (plus additional information on the home) is from page 53 in my book, Lake Washington 130 Homes. This is the house on the right (southern) of the three large mansions just north of the I-90 Bridge that can be seen from the bridge. It is the 3rd home from the left in the top picture in my 12/19/10 post immediately below.
