To this long-time residential architect, this long unsold, expensive "Spec" home off West Mercer Way is not at all attractive.
I've lived and worked on Mercer Island for a long time. As a native Seattlelite (born in Providence Hospital) I've long considered "East Seattle" as it was first called. a very special place that "Nature" has been very kind to.
It pains me to see some of the indifferent Spec homes built on a diminishing number of Mercer Island building homesites. Right up against a heavily-travelled West Mercer Way, this home fails the Twin Tests of good design and logical location. Apparently the buying public agrees.
