7960 Island Crest Way, Mercer Island

This custom designed Ralph Anderson home is perched above the tree tops and engages in a staring contest with Mount Rainier and Lake Washington. The kitchen is the heart of the home and overlooks the living and dining rooms… and did I mention Mount Rainier? The main floor master has a spa-like bath and private deck. Down the wood lined stairs there are two more bedrooms and a bonus room with, you guessed it, a view of Mount Rainier.

When this home was built in 1983 Ralph Anderson had already started to broadened his growing firm to include a variety of partners. T. William Booth and Robert Koch joined the partnership in 1980.

“Broad windows, hovering protective rooflines, exposed framing…, became his signature. Many designs take in dramatic views of the water or mountains and today epitomize what has become know as the Northwest Regional Style.

Anderson considered himself the “poor man’s Roland Terry,” many of his homes catered to the affluent residents of Bellevue and Mercer Island.” //// Docomomo WEWA
