Standing watch at the prow of Edenic gardens along Mercer Island’s celebrated Diamond Coast, the Northwest dreamworld commands 164 feet of sun-drenched beach overlooking Seattle’s skyline. A glass-walled bastion of warmth and wonder, the dramatic haven embraces you with 14,000 square feet orchestrated into a symphony of seductive settings that spill onto an elevated three-level limestone terrace styled as the glamorous centerpiece for outdoor entertaining. A sweeping balconied staircase hall elegantly presents the splendorous rooms of the main floor, then unveils the heavenly private bedroom suites upstairs—seven in all and 12 baths. A lower level houses a recreation lounge leading outdoors. Of stucco and stone chosen to complement the island’s surroundings, the soaring multilevel exterior with its stunning terraces is an architectural tour de force. Staircases descend from the terraces to breathtaking lawns. Dramatic highlights of the outdoor venues are a private barbecue pavilion and a 48-foot-long swimming pool with a hidden 120-inch plasma screen rising from the edge—both settings showcasing spectacular panoramas across the water. At the beach, the yacht dock and boathouse stand ready for a sunset cruise around Puget Sound.
