From sprawling country estates to waterfront mansions, there are plenty of posh pads in the Puget Sound area.

Our partners at the Puget Sound Business Journal just released the "Wealthiest ZIP Code" list for 2009 and some of the neighborhoods might surprise you.

It's not a shock that the 98039 ZIP code of Medina would top the list. The average home price is $2.27 million and average household income is $214,371.

Coming in at number two, the 98053 ZIP code of Redmond where the average home goes for $1.99 million and household income is about $190,481. The wealthiest neighborhoods are Redmond Ridge and Avondale.

One ZIP code that might be a surprise is Carnation. Historically known as a farming community, wealthy execs are now buying up large 20 acre lots and building sprawling country estates.

John Banovich, an artist who recently moved from Montana, bought a $1.5 million home on 21 acres in Carnation. The 6,000 sq. ft. home boasts five bedrooms, five and a half baths and a six car garage. It also has a greenhouse and an art studio.

"From every room in the house you have a spectacular view," says Banovich. "You have peace and quiet and amazing vistas. It's a little slower pace but you can ride the urban pony in less than an hour if you want."

There is another ZIP code that made the last that might come as a surprise, the 98092 of Auburn. The Muckleshoot Indian Reservation, Green River and Kummer neighborhoods have homes that average $860,838 in price.
