Boulevard Place, Estate of the Day
We've seen many a pricey home on Washington's Mercer Island but today's new build has to be one of the most impressive. It uses some techniques out of the classical architecture playbook including columns and pediments. The home is on a 1.66 acre site with a beach and a boathouse. The seven-bedroom home has a three-level limestone terrace and a massive 20x48ft resort-style pool with a barbecue pavilion and a 120" plasma screen rising from the edge of the pool. Public records show that this property was last sold for $5.375 million back in 2004. It is on the market with what appears to be a brand new home on the property for $28 million.
