Dramatically sited on the western shore of coveted Faben Point, this Mercer Island Mediterranean estate was subtly redefined in (2015) by Hendredon & Schoener, with many of the main living spaces completely reimagined and customized. The resulting transformation imbues the residence with a subtle sophistication while enlivening the living spaces with a contemporary spirit with which to enjoy the home’s lakefront surroundings. Across the entry, a grand showcase of windows punctuates the home’s Lake Washington views and neighboring I-90 Bridge. Cleverly cocooned in soundproof glass, the living room is grounded by a dramatic stone fireplace that reaches to the coffered ceiling above and is hedged by custom bench seating & handmade wallpaper. Just beyond the living room, an informal eating nook is set against a textured stonewall backdrop with custom seating and a contemporary custom farmhouse table. The gourmet kitchen offers a clean white pallet enhanced by slate gray quartz countertops and high-end stainless-steel appliances. Dome pendants floating above the island provide a modern silhouette in a sleek, hand-polished finish.
Once through the driveway privacy gates, an expansive travertine entryway lies beyond the front doors. Flanked on one side by an elegant, sweeping staircase, an intimate parlor sits opposite the stairs. Dressed in large form striped wallpaper and Ralph Lauren sconces, custom cabinetry bookends a gas fireplace under the halo of a Swarovski chandelier. Featuring a row of Tom Dixon pendant lights, the neutral tones of the dining room temper the space, creating a bright and airy platform that accentuates the lake and city views seen through an elegant wall of windows. Ample built-in seating across the fireplace was designed for lingering moments.
A balcony accessible from the living room, kitchen and dining room creates an exterior connection between the main living spaces, encouraging al fresco dining and seasonal entertainment during warmer months.
