Mercer Island, Estate of the Day
Today's estate on posh Mercer Island in Washington, comes courtesy of a reader, Timothy, who has checked out the home in person and can attest to its fabulousness. This home is admirably located so that it has beautiful views of Lake Washington and of the landscape. The home is surrounded by trees for privacy. The home has a couple of nice maintenance features: Trex decks mean no repainting or staining the wood each year and the heated tile floors in the house keep cleaning simple. The land also has an office at the water's edge, a two-bedroom guest house over the garage and an exercise room with a bathroom behind the garage. It is listed at $4 million and there is an open house this Saturday for the curious. After the jump, the cluster of outbuildings means you get the most for your small lot.
