Mercer Island Modern Farmhouse


Set into one of Mercer Island’s many embankments is an RW Anderson Homes new build that is breathtaking. Our clients set their sites on this property and saw the potential despite the overgrown landscape, steep and narrow gravel driveway, and the small 1950’s era home. So as to not forget the true roots of this property, you’ll find some of the wood salvaged from the original home and incorporated into this dreamy modern farmhouse.

Building this beauty went through a lot of trials and tribulations, no doubt. From breaking ground in the middle of winter to delays out of our control, it seemed like there was no end in site at times. But when this project finally came to fruition - boy, was it worth it!

The design of this home was based off a lot of input from our clients - a busy family of five, and a vision of what they wanted their dream house to look like. Hardwoods throughout, familiar paint colors from their old home, marble countertops, and an open concept floor plan were among some of the things on their shortlist. Three stories, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, one large laundry room, a mudroom, office, entryway, and an expansive great room make up this magnificent residence. No detail went unnoticed, from the custom deck railing to the elements making up the fireplace surround. It was a joy to work on this project and be able to let our creative minds run a little wild!
