It takes great confidence to create a custom home without a customer. It takes greater confidence to do so with a multi-million dollar, luxury, modern home. On the southwest corner of Mercer Island sits a new and pristine mansion with an asking price of $4,250,000.
Views of Lake Washington sit outside the windows, but the house doesn’t allow them to dominate the design. A room wrapped in windows leaves little space for art and also wraps the room in mirrors when it’s dark outside. In this living room, enjoy a sleek gas fireplace, warm wood floors, and subtle lighting.
A broad kitchen island dominates its corner of the room, but is dressed for serving more than creating. A matching and separated buffet bar provides more room for guests to mingle without getting too close to the bustle around the large cooktop or double ovens.
If you like patterns, modern designs provide places for dramatic examples, like the top down view of the entry and staircase. Repeating rectilinear with a few touches with the trim to add some contrast.
With five bedrooms and six bathrooms, you’re prepared for a large family or lots of guests. With 6,044 square feet inside, the rooms are large. The linear style and sleek fireplaces continue, especially in the master suite where everything gleams.
One of the prides of the place is a 1,100 square foot outdoor room, a large covered patio with a tall ceiling, glass railings, and grand views. If the extra-long gas fireplace doesn’t provide enough heat, look up and see infra-red heaters beaming warmth from above.
The 0.44 acre lot is sloped enough that seeing over your neighbors is easy, which also means you have more privacy because they can’t peek back at you as readily.
Staged and ready, the custom house waits for its custom buyer.
