When you're talking about Mercer Island waterfront mansions, you already know you're going to be talking about something fancy. When that Mercer Island waterfront mansion has a name...well now we're in a whole other stratosphere.
Meet "Maison des Volets," a 2000-built six-bedroom, five-bath estate that just hit the open market asking $6.85M.
Translated as House of Shutters, the property is described as "a synergy of structure and site." That site being .41-acres right on the Gold Coast. The listing also says that the design is meant to "evoke the earthy elegance of Provence," which certainly comes through thanks to a rustic but luxurious aesthetic.
Limestone floors, wood beams, and handcrafted pine doors run throughout the main floor, connecting the dining area to the kitchen and living room, not to mention the balcony overlooking the water. Upstairs the master suite & bath are accompanied by two more bedrooms and a studio/office space. Down below you'll find a laundry room with custom built-ins, naturally temperate wine cellar, and dry sauna. Outside amongst the garden and trees you'll spy a garden shed and charming lake house for guests or parties.
They build them big and luxurious on Mercer Island and this estate could be one of the island's shining examples.
