Mercer Island midcentury designed by Fred Bassetti
Nestled on the southern tip of Mercer Island, this updated midcentury home sits on half an acre at the end of a private lane. 7282 W Mercer Way is a four-bedroom, two-bathroom single-family rambler with formal living and dining rooms, a spacious kitchen and cozy family room.
Built in 1963, the home is a slice of Mercer Island history—designed by Fred Bassetti, the Seattle architect who designed the Seattle Municipal Tower, Jackson Federal Building and other significant buildings and residential works. Born and raised in Seattle, the Garfield High School graduate was known for his design’s soft edges and rounded corners.
Across the home’s 2,420 square feet, midcentury design elements remain—from the low-slung roofline to an emphasis on nature. Opposite of the formal living room’s brick fireplace and hearth surround, a wall of glass looks across the property’s private, pristine yard. Several outdoor living areas wrap around the home, providing ample space to relax and entertain.
All four bedrooms are off an interior hallway ending at the primary suite. The roomy master enjoys ample natural light and a cozy sitting area, and the master bathroom was recently updated with quartz counters. Other recent updates to the property include new interior, exterior and deck paint, updated bathrooms and a gas cooktop.
