Pictionary creator Rob Angel’s $8.1M Mercer Island waterfront estate For Sale

Rob Angel was waiting tables at the old Lake Union Café on Eastlake about 31 years ago and he couldn’t get an idea out of his mind. It was a guessing word game he had dreamed up, and the idea of doing something with it haunted him.

In 1985, he got together a couple of business partners who were “smarter than I was,” he says. “We made a perfect team.”

Angel bought two pieces of adjoining property on Lake Washington a few years after Pictionary came onto the market. He built his 6,300 square-foot Mercer Island home on one lot. On the other, which is buildable, he put a sport-court plus expansive lawn and gardens.

“It’s one of the biggest waterfronts on Lake Washington,” says Angel of the 204-feet of water-in-your-face, low bank frontage. “Pictionary bought and built that home,” he says.
