Tucked away in a private hillside on Mercer Island you’ll find one of SKL’s more recent projects, the Brook Bay Residence. Although there’s much still left to be seen, it doesn’t take us much to fill in the gaps. The property is gorgeous. When we first saw the exterior we expected to see ultra-modern materials and furnishings on the inside. Thankfully, while we did find some of these in the form of blackened steel, concrete, and copper the interior is extremely welcoming and homey.
The residence offers views of Lake Washington and Seward Park. We didn’t really catch glimpse of a pool but with easy lake access we think the trade-off is worthwhile. Overall there’s not much to say other than job well done, we wish we had a check big enough to buy the property from it’s current owner no questions asked… or at least let us spend the night and have a cigar on the amazing patio.
