Midcentury rambler on Mercer Island
Live the island lifestyle at 3727 77th Pl. SE, a 2,140-square-foot midcentury modern rambler on Mercer Island. The three-bedroom, one-and-three-quarters bathroom home in the Mercerdale neighborhood was built in 1959 and has maintained most of its original design elements. The property is light-filled, spacious and within walking distance to parks and downtown’s shopping and dining options.
Past the covered parking and just inside the home, you’ll find two main-floor living areas. One is defined by its massive, two-sided stone fireplace and hearth surround. Adjacent to the fireplace, a wall is lined from top to bottom with built-in cabinets—great for media storage, coats and winter gear or board games. The other living area is larger and more open with a split-level design and a wall of windows overlooking the yard. In both rooms, the soaring ceilings are covered in wooden slats, as well as darker, exposed beams that run perpendicular to slats and across the home’s width.
Between the two, a cozy, galley-style kitchen is outfitted in many of its original components—cabinetry, countertops and flooring. Overhead, a row of skylights keeps the space bright. Elsewhere in the home, the wood floors and slatted ceilings carry through to most of the bedrooms. Both bathrooms are equipped with period-specific parts and finishes, from green and pink tilework to hexagonal sinks.
