Custom midcentury home on Mercer Island
A stunning example of midcentury architecture, 4204 W Mercer Way was built in 1952 on Mercer Island’s west side. The home was designed by renowned architect Allen Moses, who oversaw the initial construction of Seattle Tacoma International Airport and the Washington State Convention Center. Moses passed away in 2019, but his works—large and small, and inclusive of this property—live on.
Exceptionally private, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is ideal for those interested in connecting with nature and art. Nestled among evergreens, this two-story property with a basement is covered by floor-to-ceiling windows that invite the outdoors in. Clean lines, wood accents, exposed overhead beams and expansive fireplaces are among the home’s original midcentury details that remain.
With just two homeowners since it was built, the home’s recent updates have focused on the master bath. The spa-like space includes a luxe standalone shower, double vanity and a soaking tub that sits below an oversized window. Elsewhere in the principal suite, a sizable walk-in closet is lined with built in racks and cubbies.
The home’s yard and gardens have been impeccably kept, offering multiple spaces to entertain or enjoy the outdoors in solitude. From a porch primed for barbeques to an outdoor living room and firepit, the alfresco space leaves little to be desired.
