JayMarc's House of the Week The Symphony House

2740 West Mercer Way Mercer Island, WA 98040 | $2,299,950

JayMarc’s Home of the Week is The Symphony House, currently available in Mercer Island! As one of the first homes on Mercer Island and at almost 6,000 square feet, The Symphony House was built by James K. Car for the D.B. McMahons, owners of a Downtown Seattle business. Located at 2740 West Mercer Way, the exact location of The Symphony House was chosen in part for its close proximity to Calkins Landing (the old ferry landing); the McMahon Family enjoyed taking the ferry to up-and-coming Seattle on weekends, and loved the expansive views of the pristine lake.

The utmost care and consideration has been given to bringing this grand home into the future. Wherever possible, all original hardware has been refinished, and supplementary pieces have been utilized where needed. Refinished radiators, fresh exterior paint, new landscaping, and an added 2-car garage allows homeowners to indulge in the grandeur of a historic home without sacrificing contemporary comforts.
