Last week’s biggest sales: Mercer Island’s ‘Roots of the Pacific Rim’ gets $3.8M

The three big home sales last week happened in Bellevue, Medina, and Mercer Island, which certainly sounds about right

Listed for: $4.79M
Received: $4.35M
Size: 5-BR, 2.75-bath, 4,187 sf.
Location1223 96th Ave SE, Bellevue
The Skinny: This place might have built in 1924 but it’s been renovated for 2016 waterfront luxury. Open space living inside, huge view deck outside…the new owner will have some fun entertaining here. The place actually listed for just shy of $5M in 2015 before coming off the market. They brought it back in May and it took three months to close the sale.

Listed for: $4.25M
Received: $3.95M
Size: 4-BR, 4.5-bath, 5,490 sf.
Location3411 Evergreen Point Road, Medina
The Skinny: Sometimes we see million-dollar homes in Medina and think that they’re only getting that kind of money because it’s Medina. Other times we see a house like this and think, yep, that makes sense. What a fascinating design aesthetic this place has going on. Like a mixture of modern architecture and Asian sensibilities. Gorgeous exteriors, too. From the long road that leads into the gated property to the pool and ponds behind.

Listed for: $3.48M
Received: $3.8M
Size: 4-BR, 4-bath, 4,620 sf.
Location4356 92nd Ave SE, Mercer Island
The Skinny: Remember ‘Roots of the Pacific Rim?’ Built in 2003 by Joseph Greif Architects, it’s a luxury home on a 1.5-acre site that’s practically all steep slope. Full of gardens and view points, Seattle Homes & Lifestyle Magazine dubbed it their “Home of the Year” in 2003. It took a grand total of one month to go pending and they ended up getting $300K on top of their asking price.
