An opulent Mercer Island midcentury with views and a sauna
3515 72nd Avenue SE has something for everyone, with a combination of impeccable 1950s midcentury design, respectful updates fit for new construction, and big views that have stood the test of time.
All of these elements come together in the great room: a classic exposed-beam sloping ceiling; a large, open, updated kitchen; and a western wall of windows showing off a huge Lake Washington view. The glass takes a corner around the dining area for a seamless transition to the home’s upper patio with hot tub, and skylights over the kitchen bring in extra light.
Those big windows carry into the master bedroom, which has floor-to-ceiling glass against its western wall, lined with a wide balcony. Both are shared with the master bath, although a sunken design keeps most areas private.
Below, a den opens to a lower patio and garden—plus a large bathroom with a sauna in the back.
