Through glimmering golden doors lies the stunning Bollywood Mansion, a sprawling palatial estate that combines India-inspired luxury with Pacific Northwest splendor. Located on a private corner lot in Bellevue’s coveted Cougar Mountain community, the 15,360 square foot home radiates old-world opulence while providing exceptional modern-day amenities.
Walking into the home you are immediately greeted by a grand columned foyer and dramatic curved staircase highlighting hand-carved North Indian rosewood, a gorgeous chandelier, and granite flooring shipped in from Bangalore. Past the entryway is the main parlor, which is primarily used for entertaining or family gatherings. The spacious parlor boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, an open dining and living room, and cozy fireplace. An epicurean kitchen made for the at-home chef features a range, large walk-in pantry, island, and oil kitchen.
Custom built in 2000 with 13 bedrooms and 9.25 bathrooms, the ornate home comprises three wings — each serving as separate living quarters. The first-floor wing is equipped with a master suite, two additional bedrooms, living room, and kitchen. Two similar family wings are found upstairs, in addition to a couple of en-suite guest bedrooms with balconies and a covered outdoor kitchen and terrace wired for open-air movie nights.
Breathtaking views of the Cascade mountain range and beautiful Lake Sammamish can be seen throughout the sweeping three-story abode, creating a peaceful and serene living environment. A traditional meditation room, media room, library, indoor sports court with sauna and spa, vaulted ceilings, and eight-car garage further add to the home’s appeal.
Sitting on nearly two acres of land, the expansive and leveled lawn features fruit trees and plenty of garden space, enclosed by a wooded perimeter for a sense of seclusion. Close by, recreational activities abound at Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, Lake Sammamish State Park, and The Golf Club at Newcastle.
Truly a cultural masterpiece with museum-quality finishes and the most intricate detailing, beautiful memories are waiting to be made at this beloved family home.
