Waterfront Wednesday: Lakefront Retreat on Mercer Island, Wash.

Photo by: Zillow This 4,540-square-foot home is all about waterfront living. Located on Mercer Island, Wash., the 5-bedroom, 6-bath house has a newly built yachtsman’s dock, an outdoor grilling station, a waterside cabana and an outdoor kitchenette that will have you spending as much time outdoors as you’ll spend inside.

This week’s installment of Waterfront Wednesday takes us to the upscale community of Mercer Island and this stunning home with 96 feet of low-bank water frontage and a sprawling beach area on Lake Washington.

Step inside the home, and gorgeous views will take your breath away at every turn, thanks to a plethora of sliding glass doors and large picture windows. Wood trim adds warmth to each room of the five-bed, six-bath residence.

Despite its interior delights, the next owners of this waterfront escape are bound to spend as much time outside the home as inside. Why? Because of the outdoor barbecue space, saltwater spa, waterside cabana, lake-level kitchenette and a newly built yachtsman’s dock. Large (and low-maintenance!) decks wrap around the entire residence, providing front-row seats during Seattle’s Seafair festival.
